Primary responsibilities:

  • Manage all purchase orders through delivery in coordination with third-party warehouses, co-manufacturers and transportation providers
  • Process internal product shipment requests for sales and marketing events
  • Maintain inventory management system to keep record of logistics and production activity
  • Collaborate with customer experience team and warehouse / shipping partners to ensure customer issues are rectified in a timely manner
  • Support management of production runs including scheduling outbound delivery of finished goods
  • Drive continuous improvement and best practices related to Operations
  • You’re self-aware and you self-regulate. You understand who you are and always seek to get better. You’re accountable and transparent, knowing it’s way better to disappoint with a truth than to appease with a lie.
  • You take pride in taking out the trash when no one is watching. You enjoy performing every task at a high quality simply because you can’t imagine doing otherwise.
  • You’re that person people connect with. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a natural introvert or extrovert. When people meet you, they want to continue to be around you.

  • Project management and communication skills
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Excel
  • We show strong preference for those with a demonstrated scrappy, entrepreneurial bend.

We also offer:

  • Competitive pay, equity + paid time off
  • Company subsidized health, dental & vision insurance
  • Company-sponsored 401(k)
