Job Listing Detail

Technical Design Manager

Location: Starkville, MS
Date: 9/22/2017

This is one of the leading companies in the US to work for. They are very diversified and have a great benefits plan. They have multiple divisions. One of those divisions is a leader in Children’s clothes and also does some Men’s and Women’s. The location is in Starkville, MS; a college town, home to Mississippi State University. Great town and great atmosphere.
The current Technical Design Manager will be staying on board during the transition. So depending on the person we find will dictate how long she stays. If we find someone that is ready to hit the ground running and is currently a Technical Design Manager, then it will be an easier transition. We would also look at someone that is a Senior Technical Designer and is looking to lead a team. In this case the current Technical Design Manager would help in training. We need someone that can lead 9 patternmakers and run the TD Department. There will be some travel to NYC and Central America. Bilingual is nice, but not mandatory. A background in Children’s apparel would be a huge plus.
