Production Operations Manager (Digital Design and Experience)

Production Operations Manager’s Mission

Hi. We’re Jam3, a design and experience agency. We help modern brands launch their products and design new customer experiences in digital, and beyond.

Our team brings folks together from around the world. We have Strategy, Creative, Experience Design and Production all under one roof (four roofs, actually). This amazing fusion of talents lets us make things we could never make alone.

Innovating all day makes us pretty fun people to work with too. We’re curious about new ideas, we know how to make them happen, and we’re always there to support each other throughout the process.

If you like making good things even better you’ll fit right in.

As our new Production Operations Manager you will be responsible for building teams in a fast-paced production environment, problem-solving to support our project teams across the organization, looking for ways to improve processes; and maintaining/sharing accurate project and scheduling information.

You’ll be responsible for the day-to-day details of internal talent bookings and coordinating external talent acquisition efforts as requested. The ideal candidate is organized, motivated and able to work independently. They are able to balance the needs of multiple parties, creating fair and balanced solutions that speak to business needs.
