Job Description:

Project Director, Operations and Systems Consulting and Engineering Our clients are small to medium-sized manufacturing, distribution and healthcare companies that need our help to analyze their operations, provide substantiated recommendations, make excellent operational and systems decisions, and effectively manage the change. This is a management and consulting position that requires elements of managing people, change management, strategic planning, manufacturing engineering, industrial and systems engineering, sales, technical writing, public speaking and customer service. The candidate will require strong leadership capabilities and grit to keep projects moving forward. The most appealing factor for this position is that our work is our main product that our customers pay for, unlike the overhead positions in larger companies. This is appealing to high-performers because performance is very visible. This person will be expected to work directly with the owners and executives of manufacturing and supply chain companies to figure out the best strategic and tactical approach, diagnose problems, provide a clear and concise report that justifies their recommendations, and manage the implementation of changes to processes, supply chain, ERP and WMS systems, facility layouts, equipment and organizational structure. They will manage the projects and provide status reports and updates on a regular basis. We expect the candidate to grow and successfully manage a small staff of supply chain consultants and engineers within two years. This position will require cultivation of relationships with existing clients, and building new relationships through speaking engagements, networking and professional organization activities. Candidate must have at least 8 years' successful history of working with all levels of the organization and managing projects making positive changes to operations and systems in manufacturing and distribution. Experience with inventory management strategies and supply chain optimization is a plus. First-hand experience working with manufacturing operations, lean training and facilitation, and facility and equipment layout is required with strong project management experience in leading change. Distribution and logistics experience with warehouse design, material handling equipment specifications, and warehouse management systems is valuable. Strong written and oral communication skills and presentation skills are very important, given that there are status reports, project reports and presentations for every project. Occasional travel is required but most of our work is in the Puget Sound area. Strong systems aptitude and knowledge and experience with ERP systems is required. Candidate must be flexible to meet the needs of our clients and their available hours, and an entrepreneurial spirit is necessary to grow this business. Required Education BS or Masters in manufacturing engineering or industrial and systems engineering. MBA, Six Sigma/Lean Black Belt and APICS Certifications are a plus. Candidate must be very adept with word, excel, and visio and creating project schedules and budgets. Compensation and Benefits We offer competitive compensation packages including salary, significant performance bonuses, ample paid time off, and medical coverage for employees and family. This position has high upside for high performers because it's easy to see your monetary and growth contribution from the work you do, and performance is very visible. Our Seattle office is on lake Union with a nice water view and a dock for boating, kayaking or paddle boarding, close to restaurants and the Burke Gillman Trail with a shower/changing room for those who exercise during the day, with free snacks and refreshments or our employees. Candidate will be issued a company credit card for taking clients to lunch and professional activities. We typically spend about half of our time in the office and half at the client sites. Application Please send your resume and cover letter! No phone calls please.
