Production Coordinator



FCTRY is a Brooklyn-based product design studio with start-up vibes and a unique company culture. We’re serious, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Our motto, Make it Fun, is exactly what we do. We turn ideas into products; weird and wonderful products that people go crazy for. Heard of Unicorn Snot? That’s us. The RBG Action Figure? Also us.

We’re run by a small, talented team of designers, artists and writers who combine top-notch design with innovative marketing strategies to create compelling consumer products then build fun, vibrant cult brands around them. This has led to some pretty impressive results, and as a result we’re growing too fast for our own good.


That’s where you come in. We’re looking for a resourceful Production Coordinator with an artist’s eye and a bookkeeper’s brain. Someone who dreams at night about things like purchase planning, quality control, improving operational efficiencies – you get the idea. You’re a problem solver with a proven track record of managing production processes, recording and maintaining product lists, and communicating effectively within and across our busy teams.


We move quickly at FCTRY. A lot will be thrown your way, and it’s a great opportunity to grow your existing skills and learn some new ones. We also have some pretty awesome benefits like Citi Bike pass, unlimited time off, a casual office environment (complete with a ping-pong table), and more. Interested?


Had you been with us last month, you would have:

  • Communicated product and packaging design specs for the RBG Action Figure to a Chinese factory
  • Managed POs for 20+ SKUs with over a dozen factories in China, Taiwan, and the US
  • Coordinated shipments of holographic material and cosmetic glitter from Europe to Asia
  • Maintained regulatory compliance for children's umbrellas in Korea, Prop 65 in California,  Sunglasses labeling in Australia
  • Helped source the perfect tiny tube for samples of our famed glitter sunscreen
  • Played cornhole at Pig Beach — in the rain, covered in glitter


Are you our perfect Production Coordinator? Let’s see. You would (ideally):

  • Have a bachelor’s degree and 1-2 years of experience in a related role
  • Have superb organizational skills with experience in scheduling and order management. You’ll need to know your way around an Excel spreadsheet, and knowledge of Asana is a plus
  • Have a knack for numbers – you’ll need it to keep track of production costs and payments, inventory management and more
  • Have top-notch communication skills and the ability to build and maintain relationships within and beyond your department, including our overseas partners
  • Love working independently and thrive when given freedom and flexibility. You communicate well but don’t need your hand held.
  • Not take yourself too seriously. You’re going to be producing Unicorn Snot, after all
