KARRIERE BEI BELLROY
Sales Forecasting & Operations Planning Manager

IN A NUTSHELL

We’re entering a new phase of growth and focused on remodeling, adapting and optimizing our supply chain to leverage emerging growth trends in a post-COVID e-commerce landscape. We have a well-established Supply Chain that has been built over the last 12 years, selling ~1,000 SKUs to over 120 countries from 20 inventory locations across 4 major sales channels (with 9 distinct channels nestled within). Previous Supply Chain experience is not necessary. We have in-house experts who have helped us build this (your manager included) and we’re now searching for an Analytical Manager to bring a fresh perspective and lead our Demand and Supply Planning business unit to develop our approach during this time of rapid growth.

As our Sales Forecasting & Operations Planning Manager, you’ll be leading a team who thinks carefully about possibilities, and is used to building models and using them to improve processes. We need you to work with our data and develop systems that enhance our forecast accuracy and inventory health. With 9 distinct sales channels, you’ll be responsible for making sure the channel inventory requirements are represented in our demand and supply plans. By leading your team to further develop and refine our processes, systems, and KPIs (the ones that make sense and help maximize everyone’s success), you’ll ensure our products get from our factories to our global distributors and customers more efficiently and cost-effectively.

You might currently be in an analytical or consulting role. Either way, you’re comfortable with large data sets and keen to be closer to the operations of the businesses to develop a deeper understanding of how the business and business systems work. You will be supported by an existing demand & supply planning team, tech team, and data team - each of them is expert in their domain and keen to share their knowledge.


YOU COULD BE THE ONE, IF YOU HAVE:

  • A couple years of people management experience. This is essential, as is the ability to influence others through the quality of your ideas, rather than your place on the org chart
  • Technical competency with ERP and BI tools (you're comfortable with data, know how to analyze it and use it to build models)
  • The desire to get your hands a bit dirty, you want to be involved in the implementation of the system so you can understand what is working and what you can do better next time
  • A first-principles approach and understand that just because things have been done in a certain way doesn’t mean they should be
  • The willingness to engage in a challenging, intellectually honest environment and contribute to it
  • Pragmatism, you understand perfection can be the enemy but also recognize the opportunity to create scalable solutions that last
  • Excellent communication and continuous improvement skills and an ability to collaborate with people of varying levels and disciplines

IF YOU WERE HERE LAST WEEK, HERE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS YOU MIGHT HAVE DONE:

  • Reviewed our inventory KPIs and investigated the cause of the increasing stockouts in the Amazon US warehouse; then noticed the KPI was misaligned with our business goals and updated it
  • Navigated large volumes of data and calculated the projected impact of Covid-related increases in shipping lead times before leading a strategic discussion with our Chief Business Officer
  • Noticed an improvement opportunity for one of our algorithms and collaborated with our Demand Planner to implement it
  • Helped our Supply Planner to decide the best way to allocate constrained inventory
  • Investigated and implemented a newly released feature on our planning software, StockIQ
  • Commenced a cost-benefit analysis of adding an APAC inventory hub to our distribution network
  • Checked in on the day’s priorities in a daily standup meeting with your team
  • Led the weekly Demand Planning meeting, focussing this week on the forecast performance of a recently released product
  • Met with our Digital Sales Manager to discuss an upcoming campaign to ensure we have enough inventory to meet the projected demand
  • Discussed the Theory of Constraints methodology with our Chief Business Officer and applied it to a piece of work

Sales Forecasting & Operations Planning Manager

UNSERE MISSION

Wir finden neue Wege, um unbeschwerter unterwegs zu sein.
Wir nutzen unser Business als Antrieb für Gutes.
Wir helfen der Welt und unserem Team dabei, voranzukommen und aufzublühen.

Unsere Standorte

Der Name Bellroy ist eine Mischung aus unseren zwei Standorten – Bells Beach und Fitzroy. Bells Beach bringt relaxte Outdoor-Atmosphäre und schafft eine gute Abwechslung zum kreativ-urbanen Fitzroy. Die beiden Welten 'Metropole' und 'Ozean' ergänzen sich. Sie sind unsere Inspiration und unser Abenteuer.

Bells Beach

Unser Strand-Hauptquartier liegt direkt hinter einer gigantischen Sanddüne, welche eine der wohlbekanntesten Surfküsten Australiens überschaut. Hier experimentieren und konzipieren unsere Produktdesigner im Labor-Studio und das Vertriebsteam konsumiert eine erstaunliche Menge an Espresso und Skype Bandbreite ... Hier geht es beschaulicher zu als bei unserer Fitzroy Crew, und wir lieben diesen friedlichen Ort, um konzentriert entwerfen zu können. Nebenan ist ein Café für eine Stärkung, und unser tägliche 11 Uhr Surf-Check ist die Gelegenheit um Meerluft zu schnappen und aufzutanken.

Fitzroy

Unser Studio in Fitzroy liegt inmitten Melbournes kreativer Szene. Hier ist neben unserem Kreativ-, Marketing- und Ingenieur-Team unsere Geschäftsführung Zuhause. Hier werden Kampagnen kreiert und dafür gesorgt, dass unsere Bellroys sicher verschickt und auch überall auf der Welt gut ankommen. Unsere Nachbarschaft brummt nur so vor inspirierender Energie (und wir haben den besten Ramen Shop außerhalb Tokyos!). Wer eine Erfrischung in der Mittagspause braucht, kann in den 50 Meter Pool um die Ecke springen und ein paar Bahnen ziehen.

Ortsunabhängig arbeiten

Abgesehen von unseren beiden Haupt-Standorten haben wir ein weltweites Team, welches von West Australien, Teilen Asiens, den USA und Europa arbeitet. Der globale Gedanke ist das Herzstück von Bellroy, es hält uns zusammen und stellt sicher, dass wir das Leben von vielen Standpunkten aus betrachten können. Wenn du eine Internetverbindung hast und die Flexibilität Teil eines Teams zu werden, das du nicht jeden Tag siehst, kannst du dich unserem Netzwerk von Freelancern anschliessen.

Unser Team

Damit Bellroy erfolgreich sein kann, brauchen wir die Talente von einer Menge Leuten. Wir sind ein Kollektiv aus Denkern und Machern aus über 25 verschiedenen Ländern (und es werden womöglich mehr). Jeder hat eine einzigartige Kombination von Fähigkeiten, die alle einem klaren Leitsatz folgen – Better Ways to Carry (Besser unterwegs mit weniger Ballast). Nutze unser Unternehmen, dich für Gutes einzusetzen, indem du der Welt und unserem Team hilfst, sich zu entfalten und zu gedeihen.
