CAREERS AT BELLROY
Operations Manager

IN A NUTSHELL

Since Bellroy launched with a range of five wallets 10 years ago, we’ve shipped carry goods to 172 countries from warehouses on 4 continents, sold out of 1100 doorways and now release about 30 new products a year (give or take). Our website is translated into 9 languages, we sell to customers in 13 local currencies and we are constantly looking for new opportunities outside of our existing markets. We’re growing, and focused on remodelling, adapting and optimising our global supply chain and distribution network to leverage emerging growth trends in a post-2020 eCommerce landscape. You, as our Operations Manager, will be vital to helping us during this time of rapid development.

In this role you’ll be accountable for the day-to-day operations of the Logistics, Demand Planning and Digital Content functions. Our Logistics function oversees our 3PL warehouses in five countries, manages relationships with our freight forwarders and ensures our transactions are represented accurately and in a timely manner in our ERP system. Our Demand Planning function oversees the demand and supply plans for ~1,000 SKUs in 20 inventory locations across 4 sales channels; while our Digital Content function ensures that our digital content and product listings are deployed and maintained on our website and 15 digital marketplaces around the world. You will further the development and refinement of processes, KPIs and systems within the Operations department and across the business.

You will be responsible for leading a team of 9 (4 full-time employees and 5 remote assistants) in maturing processes and will take a hands-on approach in implementing change-management initiatives. You’ll have access to a wide network of Bellrovians including in-house Data and Tech teams to provide you with the resources to make (the right) changes. We have a world-class team across product design, creative, data and engineering. By working closely together we’re able to innovate in ways that we’re not seeing in the market.

We have a culture of intellectual honesty and a genuinely friendly and supportive work culture. And you will be challenged to explain decisions you make and “this is the way I’ve always done it” will not cut it. If you see this as the best way to develop your knowledge and learn from other perspectives, and look forward to working somewhere where the quality of the idea matters and the seniority of the person who had the idea doesn’t, you’ll fit right in!


IF YOU WERE HERE LAST WEEK, HERE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS YOU MIGHT HAVE DONE

  • Worked with our Business Transformation Manager to develop a business case to remodel our distribution network by adding an inventory hub in Singapore
  • Reviewed an audit of our manual ERP processes and developed a schedule of work for workflow automation and improvements
  • Presented a first-pass review of customer-freight charges on bellroy.com to stakeholders, complete with recommendations
  • Determined the systems updates required to meet new customs requirements post-Brexit
  • Worked with our Digital Content coordinator to reduce the time spent on the manual maintenance of our Amazon data
  • Negotiated a rates-reduction on key lanes with our FedEx account manager
  • Met with our Demand Planner to review our Inventory Health metrics

YOU COULD BE THE ONE IF YOU HAVE…

We know we’re asking for a specific set of skills, some of which you may not have had the chance to (but want to) learn yet. If you don't meet every point below but think you have what it takes, we’d love to hear from you.

  • 7+ years of management experience in a Supply Chain or related role
  • Technical competency with ERP, WMS, BI (you're comfortable with data and know how to analyse it)
  • Understanding of global, cross-border logistics processes; Trade agreements, customs procedures, duties & taxes
  • First principles thinking; you understand that just because things have been done in a certain way doesn’t mean they should be (and also, other people’s best practices are a great place to get good ideas)
  • An understanding of Demand/Supply planning principles (e.g. you understand what safety stock is for, and when you need more or less of it)
  • Strong business and financial acumen with experience in negotiating with third party vendors
  • Experience developing performance metrics, processes and workflows
  • Willingness to engage in a challenging, intellectually honest environment and contribute to it with respect humility, and a desire to both grow and help your colleagues to grow
  • Impressive communication skills, both verbal and written; you know how to negotiate with confidence and deliver honest feedback

Operations Manager

OUR MISSION

Inspire better ways to carry.
Use business as a force for good.
Help the world, and our crew, flourish.

Our Spaces

'Bellroy' is a fusion of our two homes – Bells Beach and Fitzroy. Bells Beach brings a relaxed, outdoor vibe to balance Fitzroy's creative, urban style. The city and the sea; inspiration and adventure. Together they provide a perfect balance.

Bells Beach

Our beach HQ sits behind giant sandstone cliffs that overlook one of Australia’s best-known surfing coastlines. It’s where our Product Designers experiment in the Maker Lab, and our Sales team consume awesome amounts of espresso and Skype bandwidth. Things are more tranquil here than our Fitzroy neighbours and we like the focus that can create. There’s a cafe right next door if you need a quick bite and our 11am surf check always provides the perfect chance to reset the mind with some salt air.

Fitzroy

Our Fitzroy space is immersed in the middle of Melbourne’s creative hub. It’s where our Creative, Marketing, Engineering and Operations teams develop campaigns and ensure each Bellroy is sent safely across the world. Walk out the door and you’ll find streets bursting with energy (and the best ramen joint this side of Tokyo). There’s also an olympic-size pool just around the corner for those in need of a lunchtime refresh.

Remotely

Outside of our two main headquarters we have a team that works remotely - from Western Australia to parts of Asia, the USA and Europe. Being global is at the heart of Bellroy, it keeps us connected, and makes sure we see life from many different perspectives. If you have an internet connection and the flexibility to become part of a team you don’t see everyday, you might consider joining our growing global network.

Our Team

It takes a diverse crew to make Bellroy tick. We’re a collection of thinkers and makers, coming from over 25 different countries (and counting). Everyone has a unique set of skills, which all blend to achieve a clear vision – Inspire better ways to carry; use business as a force for good; help the world, and our crew, flourish.
