We are looking for a driven, collaborative, analytical and detailed oriented Operations Analyst to join the Powerplay Retail Direct team.

Powerplay Direct helps brands and manufacturers of all sizes properly bring their product to market via the Amazon Seller Central channel. We have success helping large brands with an existing presence on Amazon fix what could be a damaged channel due to issues that can arise from not honoring MAP pricing, non-gated third-party sellers, inefficient listings, and inventory supply issues.

As an Operations Analyst in inventory and operations, you’ll get the opportunity to quickly impact the business and work in a fast-paced startup environment.

 

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Report to operations to manage inventory flow and replenishment operations
  • Partner with key stakeholders to solve problems, write purchase orders, develop inventory forecasts, and execute the replenishment process.
  • Communicate with manufacturers and the internal team in an organized, detailed and efficient manner to ensure clear visibility to production planning and logistics operations. Maintain product in stock in Amazon fulfillment centers.
  • Develop reporting to track fulfillment variances and execution of KPI to build ordering and fulfillment accountability best practices.
  • Analyze business trends and identify opportunities to drive efficiency and process improvement. Balance inventory investment with consumer demand.
