Company Overview
We're starting an Energy Evolution with our line of herbal coffee alternatives that give you regenerative energy & fill the well within.
Company Description
We are a rapidly growing e-commerce-first wellness and natural foods brand, disrupting the way our culture relates to energy with the help of our adaptogen-packed coffee alternatives. We are a young and powerfully ambitious company, mission-driven yet with strong economics. We have a unique product and an unusual strategy, and almost unbelievable brand-love from our community. One of the most common phrases in our reviews is “life-changing.” We're at the forefront of a new category, and we face tremendous opportunity. Our core products bring our signature adaptogen blend into the coffee ritual for delicious daily drinking, so that these herbs can offer our users maximum benefit. We’re committed to doing this all while not being jerks to the earth and we stay at the forefront of sustainability in all we do—and strive to do ever-better. We are at seven digits and on our way to eight over the next few years, and we need rock-solid operations to get us there. We are looking for a co-founder-level partner to lead, manage, and integrate our ops. Our Culture: We are funny and fun—if you can’t laugh at yourself at least a little, you probably won’t love it here. But we’re also seriously hard-working—if 50-60 hour weeks scare you, you also won’t be happy here. #startuplife—but we have so much fun it’s really like a family, doing something world-changing together. We operate best on open and transparent communication, and relate to work as a place to not only develop professionally, but also personally.
Full Job Description

Are you...

...a perfectionist?

...obsessive about detail?

...a stickler about processes?

...like pushing the envelope in all the above?

Do you feel personally insulted by waste or inefficiency?

Do spreadsheets help you feel in control and therefore less anxious?

Are you a continuous learner who is always self-improving?

And most importantly, are you wanting to take a co-founder level of responsibility for results?

 

You must...

...have e-commerce, industrial, process, or supply chain background at a management level.

...have built and supervised the operation of mission-critical systems and processes.

...have at least basic project management experience.

...have a co-founder mindset and orientation towards delivering results.

 

Please send a cover letter describing your experience doing the above.

 

Role & Responsibilities

As our operations-focused Co-Founder your responsibilities will include Leadership, Management & Accountability of Production, Fulfillment, and Customer Service.

Production will be your domain and involves:

  • Managing our supply chain (built in collaboration with our experienced head of sourcing).
  • Managing our production, which means delivering unfinished goods to our co-packers, handling those relationships, and ensuring the product produced is to our very high standards.
  • Inventory management.
  • Demand planning (with initial support from our head of sourcing).

You will improve and build systems and processes across this entire chain, and also in fulfillment and customer service. You will be loved and well compensated for the value you create. We’re going to be counting on you.

You will own the relationship with the bookkeeper and be responsible for delivering monthly P&Ls, handling APs, and taking care or monthly, quarterly, and annual taxes with support of our accountant and investor.

You will own the day-to-day of the product management on our Shopify store.

We anticipate that Fulfillment and Customer Service will be managed day-to-day by a team lead in that department who reports to you. You will be responsible for optimizing costs and systems in both, and troubleshooting problems.

You will lead project management of special projects.

Compensation will be commensurate with experience, though we think a co-founder will value equity over salary, and the person who drives serious value will be compensated accordingly.

Applicants who contact us at anything other than careers@wearerasa.com will be automatically disqualified.
