Job Description
You don’t just manage the process, you are continuously looking for ways to improve the process. You know that “it’s all in the details” and you thrive on creating efficiency. If this sounds like you, you’ve landed on the right job posting. Apparel Production Coordinators are not just concerned with the end result but the way in which they arrive there. You have in-depth knowledge of the fabrications, printing techniques, and overall processes involved in creating a physical product.

You'll strategically manage how a design gets from the artist, to sample, and then perfected to the final packaged product. You'll execute and reevaluate priorities given the specific requirements of each product and notice all the details others might overlook because you frequently operate at the 4X to 8X zoom level.

As the SupplyTribe Apparel Production Coordinator, you will oversee the production of apparel and various products to ensure that they are executed with the highest quality, adhering to strict timelines and within cost parameters. This will mostly include apparel garments (shirts, hats, hoodies, yoga pants, etc.), with the ability to expand into other departments. You will enthusiastically collaborate with various individuals in all stages of the development process.

Tools of the trade: Full Circle, Excel, Word Processing programs, Adobe Creative Suite
