The Warehouse Coordinator Role

This role wears many hats, and requires someone who is good at switching gears.

This role requires coordination with the customer service team, the shipping team, the production team, and colleagues who work remotely. This role is responsible for the shipping and quality standards for the department, and requires the sensibilities of a natural leader, as well as a passion for customer service.

On the other hand this role requires someone who is very precise, exact and detail oriented. The entire team depends on this role to use their “librarian brain” to maintain the integrity of our inventory, and to innovate a system to keep our physical inventory at the highest level of accuracy as possible as items move in and out.
