About the role:

HelloFresh Canada is looking for an Inventory Analyst to support in the development, implementation, and management of our national inventory strategy.

You will:

  • Work with our Category Managers to build and maintain an inventory management strategy and framework to increase transparency into inventory counts and locations, improve inventory efficiencies while meeting production requirements, and minimize overall inventory risk
  • Build a strategy for where we hold our inventory (i.e. in one of our distribution centres across Canada or in 3rd party storage locations), accounting for safety stock levels, storage costs, and order lead times
  • Be accountable for the inventory accuracy in all storage locations, whether in-house or 3rd party, by setting a clear plan for inventory classification (ABC etc), cycle count process, and holding various stakeholders accountable
  • Lead our physical inventory counting processes to drive overall accuracy and compliance to our audit/reporting requirements
  • Support warehouse projects, system implementations and process improvements as needed

You have/are: 

  • At least 4 years of inventory, warehousing, manufacturing, and/or supply chain experience with a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering, Business or a related field
  • Exceptional analytical, problem solving, and Excel skills 
  • High energy, enthusiasm, and a can-do attitude. You’re used to working in a high pressure, fast paced, and constantly changing environment
  • Driven and self-motivated - you will be making a meaningful difference in our business and lives of our employees and customers
  • An effective collaborator, who empowers and enables others to share ideas, raises awareness, gains buy-in, and delivers fast and targeted solutions to complex problems
  • Ability to handle multiple projects and assignments, while being able to prioritize, achieve objectives, and meet budget deadlines
  • Ability to maintain sensitive and confidential information
  • Professional certifications and/or licenses with Lean Six Sigma preferred
  • Availability to work weekend schedules and cold facilities
  • Able and willing to travel up to 25% within Canada to our distribution centres

Why you'll love it here:

  • A competitive salary and company benefits
  • 75% discount on HelloFresh and Chefs Plate boxes
  • Partial top-up for parental leaves
  • We trust and support you - take ownership of your work and push your ideas from inception to execution
  • We want to see you grow - we support your career progression and provide learning and development opportunities
  • Awesome environment at our downtown Toronto office - work with fun, energetic, and supportive teams
  • We take our work seriously, but we don't take ourselves too seriously. We like to have fun and hold all-staff events for holidays, occasions, and milestone celebrations
  • We’re a social group even remotely - from team socials to HQ Wellness Wednesdays, there’s always something happening for you to participate in
  • Our delicious recipes are tested in the office, and you can grab a bite (or a plate)! Otherwise, there’s a fully-stocked kitchen with snacks.

While our HQ is working remotely at the moment, we’ve kept the work-hard, play-hard energy up virtually!
