At RockAuto, 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
- 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
- Bachelor’s degree
- Work experience in distribution or similar environment (where volume is high, margins are low, and mistakes are expensive)
- Advanced computer skills and eagerness to develop more
- Desire and ability to work independently, initiating, executing, and being accountable for your own projects without direct supervision
Must be able to work full time from our Madison, WI office and eligible to work for any US employer without visa sponsorship.
RockAuto is an online retailer that bases its decisions on data. We rely on Supply Chain Managers to bring meaning to those data, reducing complexity for customers and vendors alike. Those who excel are not necessarily wizards with technology or authorities on arcane logistics concepts, but they have a record of engaging stakeholders, forging partnerships, and expressing themselves with precision in any context. Successful Supply Chain Managers are not just content with evaluating and monitoring their supply chain (although both are essential job functions) — they actively pursue novel techniques to nurture business systems and identify opportunities to streamline them. If adding clarity to a concept that seems gnarled to others — whether by diagramming a process in a flow chart, using a clever analogy, or just picking up the phone to work through a tricky problem with a counterpart — is a skill found in your toolkit, we want to hear from you.
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 20 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. RockAuto offers competitive wages, with an expected annual pay of $76,960 – $108,160 based on experience and performance. We also offer 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.
