Full-time Engineering Executive Information Technology

Job Description

Foundry is a rapidly growing highly progressive startup focused on building a brand portfolio by acquiring brands built online. As operators who have first-hand experience launching, scaling and successfully exiting brands, our founding partners hold a deep understanding and respect for the work that goes into building a business. For Foundry, the acquisition of a brand is more than just a transaction. It's an on-going relationship and dedication to investing in and growing long-lasting brands that continue to enhance our customers lives.

OUR TEAM

Our team is our special sauce. We're a group of operators with grit and high integrity that are willing to take the hill. We are fully remote, which makes us all collaborative, self-advocating and highly resourceful. We all share the same singular mission to identify, acquire and invest in online consumer brands to profitably scale them. And while we are invested in building enduring brands, we are equally invested in the people who will make that happen.

THE OPPORTUNITY

As the VP of Operations you will contribute to the Foundry vision of growing great brands that enhance our customers lives. You will do this by establishing the foundation of our supply chain, inventory and logistics operations.

As a key member of the Foundry team, you will be responsible for planning, directing, coordinating and overseeing operations activities including procurement, production, logistics, distribution, quality assurance, compliance and customer experience. You will focus on developing and implementing cost-effective systems to meet the current and future needs of Foundry and Foundry purchased brands. You will play a large role in building a world-class team and creating an exceptional work environment that will help Foundry deliver and scale efficiently.

What You'll Need

Grit, integrity, willingness to work through challenges, question yourself and others and work quickly – our simplified values. Working in a fast paced start up is a rewarding but often times challenging experience. To succeed you'll need to be willing to take ownership of your successes and failures. When you fail, you adapt and learn. You need to be able to continue to push forward even when others would likely give up. You should be humble enough to learning new skills and confident enough to speak up. If this is how you'd describe yourself, we encourage you to apply, even if you don't meet all of the qualifications below.

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • 10+ years of progressive leadership in omni-channel multi-SKU fulfillment, including with a 3rd party logistics provider.

  • Strong knowledge of trade compliance and customs regulations as well as all applicable rules and regulations
  • Excellent computer skills including experience with EDI, ERP and WMS systems.

WHAT YOU'LL GET:

  • Competitive salary + Equity
  • Generous Benefits Package (PTO, health insurance, HSA/FSA plans, Dependent care FSA, 401(k) with match and more)
