Company: Hungryroot
Location: New York

Job Description:

Who We Are

Hungryroot is the all-in-one recipe and grocery service. We're here to help people feel their best and make grocery shopping, cooking, and enjoying healthy food easier than ever. So, we're creating the first-of-its-kind food experience that puts people (and the planet) first, built for busy lives and individual needs.

We are a distributed team built on top talent from over 10 states across the U.S. While we have an office in NYC, we support employees creating "offices" wherever they are. We believe in fostering team connection and collaboration across all of our "offices" - so don't expect to be online at 6 am to make a meeting if you're on the West coast. Expect to attend regular team building events, and to be able to work from the beach every once in a while. Expect to be treated like an owner who cares about our common goal, not someone who has to clock in and out of work.

What You'll Do

We're looking for a highly organized and detail-oriented Procurement Coordinator who is seeking a challenging position in a fast-paced environment. In this role you will work closely with the Category Managers and Sourcing Team to streamline product onboarding processes, maintain our product database, and assist with vendor management and communications. The ideal candidate has strong organizational and time management skills, can juggle multiple projects at once, and is able to effectively improve upon existing processes and implement new ones. Some experience or genuine interest in food is preferred.

You will be joining an Operations team responsible for our sourcing, supply chain, culinary and customer care functions. As part of a highly cross-functional role/team, you will have great exposure into sourcing, supply chain, and the greater operations umbrella.

How You'll Make an Impact

  • Update and maintain product master, ensuring all product and vendor information is up to date
  • Support Category Leads and Sourcing Team with day to day tasks including vendor follow-up and additional critical support tasks
  • Work closely with new vendors to submit onboarding paperwork in a timely manner, verify that setup information is complete and accurate, and assist with other onboarding responsibilities
  • Support product launches on Hungryroot's website by setting up new products in the database and managing the asset + copy upload process
  • Manage samples, including placing sample requests with existing vendors, tracking samples, participating in in-office sampling, and working closely with Photo Team to coordinate photography samples
  • Participate in regular new product onboarding meetings with the Sourcing and Culinary Teams
  • Collect and organize information for new private label projects, help manage timelines and workflow
  • Implement new tools and/or processes to streamline overall onboarding process, including making it easier for new vendors to submit items for review and required paperwork once approved
  • Collaborate with marketing on product updates including new product launches
    Why We Need You
    • 1+ yrs of related professional working experience
    • Bachelor's Degree in Business, Supply Chain or related field a plus
    • Highly organized and detail oriented
    • Able to prioritize time efficiently and manage multiple projects simultaneously
    • Proactive and action-oriented approach to work
    • Strong communication skills
    • Beginner-level familiarity with Microsoft Excel
    • Passionate about food and the food industry
      Perks & Benefits
      • Remote Work Optional: Work from home, work from our NYC office, work from anywhere, you decide!
      • Competitive compensation + comprehensive Medical, Dental, and Vision benefits
      • Unlimited vacation policy
      • Monthly Hungryroot credit
      • Universal paid parental leave
      • 401k
      • Commuter benefits
      • A working environment filled with passionate, happy, smart people!
