Supply Chain Manager

Position Description

At RockAuto, we don't separate purchasing, logistics and customer service. Supply Chain Managers have end-to-end responsibility for order processing -- from website to warehouse shelf to customer door -- and continuously improve each link in that chain to deliver the best possible service at the lowest possible cost. As our customers will tell you, it works!

As a Supply Chain Manager, you will:

  • Ensure pricing, inventory and other data relevant to your warehouse are accurately reflected in our online catalog
  • Streamline and automate warehouse processes to ensure orders ship on time, properly packaged
  • Increase sales of products from your warehouse by obtaining additional part information for our catalog, negotiating better pricing, or whatever you think will be most effective
  • Answer customer questions -- and enhance the information on our website to include those answers
  • Resolve problems with customer orders -- and use that experience to identify weak links in the supply chain, test your diagnosis with data, and create and implement durable solutions to those problems

Position Requirements

  • Bachelor's degree
  • Desire and ability to work independently, initiating and executing your own projects without direct supervision
  • Advanced computer skills -- we're an e-commerce company and we make decisions based on data
  • Desire to work in a position that will have an immediate impact on business
  • Familiarity with car model names, part descriptions and other automotive terms

Must be able to work full-time from our Madison, WI office and have the ability to work for any US employer without visa sponsorship

Preferred but not required:

  • Analytical or quantitative degree (business, supply-chain and/or operations management, information technology, engineering or computer science preferred)
  • Ability to use Microsoft Access or other relational database tools/languages to query data for analysis and effective decision making
  • Familiarity with SAP or other order processing/inventory management systems
  • Foreign language skills (we've translated our catalog into French, German and Spanish already and would like to expand our ability to communicate with customers all over the world)

Why RockAuto?

Strategic and tactical impact. Our relationships with our suppliers, our reputation with our customers, and our ultimate profitability as a business depend on what you do.

Strong growth, unique business model. RockAuto has posted 10+ years of double-digit sales growth. We present products and information in ways that are relevant and compelling for online consumers and we deliver on what our catalog promises -- with quality and efficiency competitors struggle to match. You will play a key role in extending that leadership.

Career building. People who tend to do well at RockAuto are those who enjoy tackling challenges with detail-oriented enthusiasm and taking on a variety of responsibilities. Working here truly is a "job of many hats." By using our software and other database management systems, your base skill level will grow into an arsenal of supply chain, product and data-analysis knowledge. Our "promote from within" philosophy and encouragement of implementable ideas -- proposed by any employee -- make working at RockAuto professionally and personally fulfilling.

Open, friendly environment. Everyone sits in an open space, encouraging collaboration and teamwork. Our flat structure creates transparency and enables near-constant implementation of employees' creative ideas and solutions. Office outings, like the annual winter holiday party, are a great way to connect with fellow employees.

Excellent compensation. Competitive wage, overtime pay for all positions, a generous allowance of paid holidays and personal time off, affordable health insurance, a Simplified Employee Pension for employees with qualifying tenure and a tradition of rewarding individual results and sharing the fruits of company success.
