  • Communicate basic technical guidance and priorities to vendors, and serve as a key point of contact for vendors throughout the product development process.
  • Manage version control of development textiles throughout the product development process, and ensure that all cross-functional partners have access to the most up-to-date information.
  • Design and execute testing to satisfy cross-functional partner teams requirements, and facilitate down selection of textile materials.
  • Source new vendors to expand our development partners in the US and East Asia.
  • Build presentations and reports to aggregate test results and qualitative attributes, and explain technical directions to higher management levels.
  • Procure new material samples that support programs and have them built into testable formats.
  • Provide short time frame support on mini-programs that serve the immediate low volume needs of internal proof of concept and prototyping teams.
  • Serve as a point of contact for the engineering and product development teams, and convert their requests into actionable programs through conversations.
  • Communicate with vendors regarding timelines, volumes, and technical data, and maintain detailed records of all communications.
    • Bachelor's degree in Textile Engineering, Softgoods, or a related field.
    • 2-3 years of experience in textiles and softgoods, preferably in a technical environment.
    • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills.

    • Ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously and prioritize competing deadlines.
    • Experience working with cross-functional teams, as well as vendors and suppliers.
    • Knowledge of product development and manufacturing processes is a plus.
      The pay rate range above is the base hourly pay range that Aditi Consulting reasonably expects to pay someone for this position (compensation may vary outside of this range depending on a number of factors, including but not limited to, a candidate's qualifications, skills, competencies, experience, location and end client requirements).
