We're looking for a Production & Operations Manager

Palmes is a Copenhagen-based menswear brand with roots in tennis culture for wearing on and off the court, rooted in the belief that tennis should be for the many; not the few. We want to show how tennis can be a vehicle for personal growth, for forming new friendships and for having fun. Our collection is available through retailers that include SSENSE, Browns, Nordstrom, Wood Wood and more.

Now, we're looking for a full-time Production & Operations Manager to join the Copenhagen HQ of our fast-growing team.

This role includes tasks such as:

  • Overseeing all development and production, from sourcing and initial prototyping across sales samples to final production
  • Overseeing all trim, packaging and fabric orders
  • Partake in the creation of tech packs and design specs in collaboration with the team
  • Handle cost negotiation and price management
  • Make color, fabric and style overview per season
  • Oversee design and production timelines
  • Ensure timely delivery of all samples and production deliveries in liaison with our suppliers
  • Implement product updates and changes across the production process to ensure correct designs and avoid production and fulfillment issues
  • Liaison with suppliers on a day-to-day basis for an effective, cost-efficient workflow
  • Make color, fabric and style overview per season
  • Oversee the product development in our ERP systems with a focus on keeping all information accurate for an efficient and transparent process
  • Oversee all shipping and processing of BtB orders in close liaison with our third-party logistics partner
  • Oversee all incoming deliveries from suppliers and ensuring that all information is communicated to our third-party logistics partner
  • Partake in the execution and attendance when showing our collection at tradeshows and showrooms in Copenhagen, Florence and Paris two times a year
  • Partake in the day-to-day operations of the office alongside the team

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Holds 1-3 years of experience in product development, sourcing and buying.
  • Has a bachelor’s degree or equivalent within a relevant field (a plus, not a must)
  • Is detail-oriented, brand-passionate and capable of multi-tasking in a dynamic work environment.
  • Holds an interest in tennis though this is not a must. If you've played for years, that's amazing. But if you've never held a racquet in your hands, then it's perfectly fine too!
  • Is a combination of a creative power engine and structured go-getter.
  • A strong understanding of Palmes’ brand, value and price positioning
  • Has strong capabilities in working with numbers, cost calculations etc.
  • Understanding of production cycles for both wholesale and BtC channels
  • Written and orally fluent in English with excellent communication skills
  • Proficiency in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign alongside Excel and Powerpoint.
  • Proficiency in an ERP system, like Zedonk, is a plus, but not a must.
  • Interested in working in a fun, high-paced and creative environment
  • Is open for travel for supplier visit two to three times per year

We offer:

  • An exciting position at our Copenhagen HQ where you'll be able to put your mark on Palmes and be part of a fast-paced entrepreneurial-minded company
  • The opportunity to grow within a newly-started company
  • Competitive salary according to qualifications
