Operations Manager Blue Apron
As we grow and scale our business at Blue Apron we?re looking for a driven problem solver and collaborator to tackle challenges in our operations areas and grow along with our company. As a start-up our environment is unstructured so a strong candidate is a self-starter who has 2-4 years of experience delivering measurable results in abstract environments. This position is based in New York.
About the role:
From distribution and transportation to customer service, own projects that will directly impact our customers and our bottom line. One example project would be designing a return program so customers can recycle our packaging. You?d research third-party and in-house solutions, make a data-backed proposal to gain buy-in from the team, build sustainable processes to make the program a reality, and lead a cross-disciplinary team to execute on the logistics.
We?re growing, and you?ll grow right along with us. Push yourself to learn about new parts of the business and leave your comfort zone to take on fresh challenges. Deliver impressive results and we will hand you more scope.
Be a part of our fun and fast-paced start-up culture. There are no stuffy offices or cubicles here. You?ll work closely with a diverse team that?s as passionate about our product and business as you are.
Have fun outside of the office, too. Sample new recipes in our test kitchen, attend weekly happy hours, and angle for a spot on our party-planning committee!
You?re process-oriented and inquisitive. You challenge the status quo. When you notice problems your first instinct is to ask questions to get down to root causes. You frown upon work-arounds and gymnastics and get satisfaction from even small changes that get things running smoothly and efficiently.
You have a passion for solving problems collaboratively. You communicate clearly verbally and in writing. You take in feedback and others? ideas and value brainstorming and working through problems iteratively.
Numbers are second-nature to you. You analyze data and use data analysis to inform business decisions. You?re an Excel expert. Comfort working with pivot tables, vlookups, and other advanced Excel features strongly preferred.
You work with a high sense of urgency and are adept at prioritizing your time.
2-4 years of experience working in logistics, e-commerce operations, supply chain, or a related field a must.
Experience working with food and food packaging a plus. We?re not all foodies here, though, so don?t fret if your Instagram feed doesn?t consist of wall-to-wall food photos.
A bachelor?s degree.
To apply for this position please email your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org . In your cover letter please (1) describe the most complex problem you?ve solved and (2) discuss a specific and important quantitative result you?ve achieved in your career to date.
