Director of Supply Chain - Logistics

Company: Siete Family Foods
Location: Austin
Posted on: January 26, 2023

Job Description:

"Logistics" as defined by our family, is: making breakfast tacos with the perfect ratio of fillings to hot sauce; landing corny jokes like the guy who posted bad dad jokes in his front lawn for passersby; and successfully coming up with any excuse to eat delicious food together. Our ideal Director of Supply Chain - Logistics would agree with this definition, and may even contribute the following specs: heading warehouse operations and order fulfillment for eCommerce and retail distribution; championing and leading your team to success; and optimizing freight strategy. Additional jokes about pallets (palettes, and paletes) are a bonus. If this sounds like you, our family would love to chat with you!About you:

  • Leadership and people management are your bread and butter-er...chips and guac, chili and lime, or rice and beans.
  • Like a clairvoyant fortune teller (or one especially impressive fortune cookie), you see all the details and the big picture, at times with limited information and resources. What's more, you use this foresight and vigilance to problem-solve!
  • You communicate effectively verbally and in writing, like your favorite teacher from grade school. Only without the pointing stick, old-school projectors, and grape-scented markers.
  • Friends and family don't call you "Ole Hawk Eyes" for nothing-you've got the ability to perform and execute accurately and swiftly in a detailed-oriented environment.
  • You've got excellent organizational and time management skills. If you could become an office supply, you'd be a hybrid between an accordion binder and a portable hourglass.
  • Financial Management is a part of your everyday routine, right up there with thermoses of coffee, the phrase "packin' and stackin,'" and funny delivery memes.
  • Some people are born with an intense love for (or aversion to) pineapple on pizza, cilantro, and licorice just like you were born with a "safety is non-negotiable" mentality. It's a beloved part of your identity!What you will do:
    • Lead warehouse operations and order fulfillment for retail distributors, eCommerce, and wholesale, including inbound receipt, storage, inventory, outbound shipments, technology, parcel shipping rates, customer care (distributors), and related staffing.
    • Identify and execute logistics strategic initiatives, including freight portion of P&L, technology, lane rate optimization, contracts, and relationship building.
    • Institute metrics to establish baselines for KPIs to measure the business performance.
    • Ensure government compliance as it relates to local, state, and federal laws.
    • Own capacity analysis and execution for packaging (eCommerce and wholesale) and finished goods storage at Siete warehouses and 3PLs.
    • Work closely with the Senior Director of Supply Chain to ensure warehousing and logistics plans are in alignment with supply chain strategy for meeting the growing business needs.
    • Analyze warehouse and delivery opportunities and produce solutions to ensure continuous improvement for all areas.
    • Develop annual and long-term plans, including vision, goals, and objectives related to fulfillment and logistics.
    • Foster a culture of celebrating wins while striving for growth and excellence in delivering customer delight.
    • Strategize methods for efficiencies and cost savings, including, but not limited to automation and process improvements.
    • Define strategic initiatives related to Managed Transportation partners, oversee the implementation, and measure success.Your experience:
      • 8+ years of related experience
      • 5+ years people management experience
      • Food CPG experience strongly preferred
      • Experience with a warehouse management system or other business operations system such as Fishbowl, SAP, NetSuite, or Oracle is a must. Experience with transportation management systems and dock scheduling software is a plus.
      • Deep understanding of warehouse safety and OSHA laws; 30-hour OSHA Certification is a plus.Please fill out our . There are no wrong answers here -we want to learn more about you!
