As part of the Supply Chain organization, the Special Operations team is focused on bringing end-to-end visibility to our supply chain performance and working on special projects to accelerate the processes. Think of it as a SWAT team, where our weapons are our brains and the commander is the COO. The team is small but mighty that’s why we look for the right candidate to join us.

About the Job
As a Special Ops Analyst, you will proactively perform analysis to solve for a business problem or opportunity. You drive your own hypothesis and pull your manager when you need advice or face some roadblock, for the rest you own it. This position will have the opportunity to work on topics such as improving on-time delivery, offering faster shipping at no extra cost, optimizing fulfillment options (pickup, site-to-store), improving fresh product delivery experience, etc.
A new “mission” can pop up anytime. The COO or another company leader sends a few sentences describing a problem that you need to fix for our customers. You don’t know where to start from. You go to a whiteboard, and start thinking about different ways to tackle the problem, you start asking questions and creating a framework to solve it. The more you think about it, the more complex the problem you realize it is and the more exciting it becomes. It has the usual ingredients: If solved, you could help millions of customers save time and money so that they can live better. The problem lives at the intersection of digital experiences and a massive supply chain of fulfillment centers and more. To solve it, you will need to perform very sophisticated analysis manipulating massive amounts of data and will build a tool or product out of nowhere. Most of the time, you will work with Product, Engineering and different areas of the Supply Chain, other times you will need to partner with Retail and Marketing. Iteration will be key and being open to feedback your best ally to create a better solution.
Are you up to the challenge?
• Ownership: Flexible, collaborative approach to problem solving, in which creativity and quick thinking can lead to a solution in hours rather than days
• Analytical: Ability to manipulate large data sets and quantities of data to drive business decisions and maintain high attention to detail. Strong Excel and SQL skills are a must
• Diligent: Track-record of effectively completing multiple and time-sensitive projects
