About Us and the new Production Manager role:

Your small team of assembly technicians will be responsible for product assembly and repair, working towards consistent quality and excellence in both their individual and team performance.

  • Work experience and knowledge in small-batch manufacturing, design for manufacturing, manufacturing scale-up and outsourcing will be valued.
  • Hands-on team management experience – you love leading a small, growing team.
  • Knowledge of manufacturing techniques.
  • If you have experience or knowledge of project management, this is a bonus but not essential.
  • Knowledge of quality assurance and quality control are also needed.
  • English – spoken and written level (C1).
  • A ‘can-do’ attitude.
  • A positive team player.

Please note this role will initially be based from home and will move back to be an office-based role in Madrid 28014 once able. You would also be expected to travel and work with your London based colleagues regularly. 

We look forward to hearing from you.
