We are looking for a Production Manager / Operations Manager to help with change and growth of a rapidly growing company. This is an interim role which will last between 3 to 5 months and has the possibility for a direct hire. Though a temporary position, you will be given the autonomy to make changes and the support to back up your efforts.
