[Hiring] Director of Custom Design and Print @Mrmglobal1

May 18, 2023 - Mrmglobal1 is hiring a remote Director of Custom Design and Print. 📍Location: USA.

Our Purpose

At MRM Global, our purpose is to enable the world’s leading consumer brands to increase their sales and reduce wastage.

Up to 50% of physical marketing materials in the consumer goods industry are never executed and are instead sent to landfill, incinerated, or recycled. This wastes time, resources, money and most importantly has a huge negative impact on the environment.

At MRM Global, we believe there is a better way to support customers with physical point of sale marketing. We believe that the future is on-demand ordering, localised content, and distributed production.

Clients including as Bacardi, Diageo, Carlsberg, Pernod Ricard, and Molson Coors use our Brand Creator technology platform to create customised and brand compliant marketing materials that are produced on-demand through our cloud printing network.

MRM Global has recently won a multi-year national contract with a major drink's distributor. We are looking for an energetic, experienced and solution-oriented Customer Success Manager to implement the team's strategy, manage, and nurture their “book of business” and drive our product adoption and user engagement rates ever higher.

The ideal candidate will be someone with a growth mindset who thrives on taking responsibility and loves rolling their sleeves up and getting stuck into big challenges and solving tricky problems. We are looking for someone who enjoys operating at a very fast pace, learns relentlessly and is always looking to improve themselves and support their team.

Our Culture

Our culture reflects our rapid growth and our ambition to be the global market leader. That means that we are a fast-paced organization where every day is different, and the work is challenging. We appreciate that the scale-up experience isn’t for everyone. We are specifically looking for people who love taking responsibility, challenging themselves, and who strongly relate to our 4 core values:

  • We’re a Team: Growing a global company means solving some exceedingly difficult problems and we believe working as a team and leveraging the skills of a diverse group of people is the best way to solve those problems. We look for team players with a record of accomplishment of working with others to achieve amazing results.
  • We’re Resilient: If you're looking for a smooth ride on a freshly surfaced road, with no diversions, MRM probably isn't for you. We’re looking for people who love a challenge, can handle uncertainty, and have the gritty resilience to overcome difficulties.
  • We’re humble: Being open to learning and being able to admit when you are wrong is fundamental to having the growth mindset required at MRM. At MRM we are taking on new challenges every day and we do not have all the answers. Those who succeed at MRM are humble with a strong desire to develop themselves and be constantly learning
  • Be Yourself: At MRM we believe it's essential to have genuine connections with team-mates, customers, and suppliers. We look for people that are honest, genuine and can build deep relationships with others based on trust and authenticity.

The Director of Custom Design and Print role is a lynchpin leadership position in MRM’s North American team. You will be responsible for leading the business unit and ensuring that we exceed customer service level agreements and achieve MRM’s internal business metrics such as revenue, profit, turnaround speed, customer satisfaction and quality.

The majority of our print orders are created through our technology platform which allows users to create their own designs and select from a catalogue of standardized products. However, when our clients want to provide their customers with unique and premium marketing materials, that are not available on our App, we manage this through our Custom design and print process.

The ideal candidate for this role is an experienced people and process manager who thrives on building and improving processes and managing a team of talented creatives and administrators. It is important that you have a growth mindset, a positive attitude towards taking responsibility and solving tricky problems. We are looking for someone who enjoys operating at a very fast pace, prepared to provide strategic direction and leadership at the same time as rolling up the sleeves and helping with the day-to-day activities of the team.

What you’ll do;

  • Hire, lead, manage and be accountable for MRM’s Custom Design and Print team.
  • Manage all aspects of custom print orders from initial client consultation to final delivery, including the P&L for MRM’s Custom Workflow business unit in North America
  • Continue to expand MRM’s custom design and production supply chain, with an on-demand approach, with national coverage across the USA
  • Identify suitable suppliers, agree pricing and ways of working, review and manage contractual agreements as required
  • Build out and continuously improve the process; how MRM receive and assign orders to supplier, quoting, approvals, workflow management, reporting, invoicing
  • Manage the online process used for development of graphic design work
  • Work with the rest of the business to determine required product or technical integrations to ensure the best customer experience.
  • Build risk register and mitigating/responsive actions to be taken.
  • Maintain constant internal communication with the Director of Customer Success, VP of Sales, VP Operations, Head of Supply Chain and the CEO to ensure that revenue and profit targets are being met.
  • Build and maintain metrics trackers that track SLAs, quality and customer satisfaction KPI’s.

What you’ll bring;

  • You will have at least 5 years of experience of managing large scale custom design and print workflows in an agency or marketing services environment.
  • Experience of significantly increasing quality, speed and profitability in existing processes and systems.
  • Previous experience building and managing complex supply chain with multiple suppliers and stakeholder management across all levels – from a CEO to the support & production teams
  • Experience in sourcing, onboarding, and managing a large variety of suppliers across design services, POS print & accessories
  • Excellent negotiation skills with high financial acumen and the ability to work with our suppliers to develop financial models that ensure budgets are met.
  • Outstanding communication, organizational and time management skills
  • A growth mindset and proven desire for continuous learning and improvement
  • Strong teamwork, interpersonal and collaboration skills with colleagues and clients
  • Self-motivated, entrepreneurial attitude with the ability to be creative and adaptable

Not essential, it would be a bonus if you;

  • Experience of working with major beer, wine and spirits distributors and/or suppliers in the USA.

You could belong here;

To deliver brilliant marketing to MRM’s global drinks suppliers and their customers we need to build a company that’s reflective of their diversity. We’re building an inclusive workplace that promotes and values difference, where everyone, from any background, can do their best work and be proud to belong.

What we’ll offer

  • 401k. A combined contribution of your choice and a capped company match
  • Healthcare.
  • Reward and Recognition. A bonus scheme based on company performance and your personal contribution, with regular recognition along the way.
  • Holidays. 33 days including public holidays with the option to buy or sell more
  • Summer Fridays. 4 half day Fridays in the summer months to get the BBQ on or set off early on a weekend road trip!
  • Remote work environment. Flexibility to work remotely, with regular team meetups to build connections.
  • Grow with us. You'll have opportunities to develop your career in a high pace technology company as part of a great team.
  • Personal Investment. We'll invest in your personal development and give you regular feedback.
  • Open culture. A place where you can bring new ideas, get things done, do things differently and have a real impact.

I would expect they would also manage ngine/custom designers so may want to include design suppliers alongside the print/POS [KH1]
