Over the past couple of years we’ve achieved strong growth, driven by a passionate team that shares our deeply-embedded brand values. We are now ready to take the next step and continue building the Lace world and are looking for our next Production Manager.

As Production Manager you will be responsible to drive product development from concept to approved product sample. You will also be responsible for placing orders and order follow-ups.

It is important that you are results oriented as you will be responsible for all production challenges which may occur along the way. We are searching for a person that takes responsibility, is flexible and prestigeless.

You’ll be working very closely with design and will play a large role in building our collections, hence you also need to be creative and business-minded. A strong interest and knowledge in color, shape, and material is a must.

At Lace Laboratory you aren’t just another cog in our wheel. You will be integral in helping us take Lace Laboratory to the next level. We need motivated team players who treat the brand like it’s their own, going above and beyond to turn us into a household name across the world. In turn, you will get the opportunity to do work that makes you proud and the support you need to reach your own potential.
