About the job

Reporting to the Product Lead, you will assist in ensuring our manufacturing process runs smoothly, ironing out any kinks you find along the way, quickly. Working on the ground with factory owners and our local teams, you’ll make sure the wood, upholstery, construction and packaging is top notch. As a product coordinator you will be required to liaise with all the Swoon Editions teams, regularly preparing updates and briefings on the status of our products, their manufacture and delivery. You’ll be organised, pedantic about quality, and committed to ensuring our products are the best in the market, over and above a manufacturer’s standard output.
