Who is Allbirds?
At Allbirds, we’re on a mission to prove that comfort, good design and sustainability don’t have to be mutually exclusive. We are dedicated to making the most sustainable footwear we can using premium natural materials, designed for the to and fro of everyday life. Our commitment to making better shoes in a better way is fueled by a belief that the shoe industry needs to focus less on flash and more on thoughtfulness. With funding from the leading venture capitalists in consumer products, and the founding CEOs of some of the greatest e-commerce businesses in recent history, our desire to shake up the footwear industry is off to a great start. In fact, TIME already called our first shoe, the Wool Runners, the most comfortable in the world, and there is much more to come.
Where do we need help?
Allbirds is in the process of building a world class operational team to increase our ability to consistently surprise and delight our customers while making the most positive impact to our environment. As we continue to grow at an enormous pace, we need to ensure that we manage our supply chain efficiently from start to finish.
The Global Planning team plays a critical role in ensuring this occurs. The team currently manages several aspects of the supply chain process – for example, procuring key raw materials, managing finished good vendor communication, forecasting supply and demand across all our assortments and geographies, and keeping a close eye on inventory levels.
We are looking for a Senior Manager of Supply Chain Planning to build out and lead our planning function that includes merchandising, demand, supply and S&OP. The perfect fit would be somebody that knows the fundamentals of planning, inventory management, and inventory allocation, and likes to get their hands directly into the details while building out our processes, team and function. We are looking for a highly analytical individual, who is comfortable dealing with large sets of data and thinks outside the box. Additionally, this individual should possess excellent leadership and communication skills. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who wants to be close to the actual strategy and execution of manufacturing, merchandising and analytical side of consumer products planning. The successful candidate will work cross functionally to match supply with demand, working closely with product development, analytics, logistics, finance and Marketing.
