Project Amsterdam is part of Walmart’s Store No 8, an innovation hub formed by the world’s largest retailer focused on identifying and investing in trends and technologies reshaping the shopping experience.  Project Amsterdam will play a huge role in the enterprise-wide delivery and fulfillment strategies.  Its success requires a cross-functional, mission-based team that is highly entrepreneurial, collaborative and passionate about solving the unsolved problems. 

Project Amsterdam is seeking a hungry and hardworking Operations Manager to join our amazing team. We’re looking for a resourceful, efficient, and detail-oriented logistics pro who’s excited to roll up their sleeves and jump right into all the moving pieces of our extremely fast-paced operation.

 RESPONSIBILITIES: 

  • Hiring, training, and managing our team of Drivers
  • Monitoring our delivery operations and handling exceptions or emergencies as they arise
  • Serving as a friendly, helpful point of contact for clients, Drivers, and vendors
  • Helping plan efficient routes and shifts on a daily basis
  • Working with the entire operations team to develop and refine processes for all daily operations (fleet maintenance, package processing/sorting, delivery dispatching, etc.)

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS: 

  • Natural leadership instinct: you have a demonstrated ability to manage operational teams with patience, tact, and discipline
  • Eagerness to get your feet wet in all types of operations: you love jumping from one project to the next and are excited by a multi-faceted role
  • Exceptional (and perhaps obsessive) attention to detail: you never let anything slip through the cracks
  • Extreme resourcefulness: you have a rare knack for getting amazing things done quickly, cheaply, and independently
  • Commitment to irregular working hours: you understand what being at an early-stage startup means and aren't scared away by a 24/7 operation
  • Passion for building things from scratch: you know that sometimes, if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself

WE’LL LIKE YOU EVEN MORE IF YOU: 

  • Have experience in a startup environment
  • Have experience in logistics or operations
  • Are an Excel master 

THIS WON’T BE A GOOD FIT IF YOU: 

  • Don’t like getting your hands dirty (figuratively or literally!)
  • Ever arrive late to anything
  • Get overwhelmed easily
  • Lose emails or take days to reply
  • Work best in highly structured environments
