4 days ago
The Flex Company was founded on the belief that people deserve innovative and sustainable period products. Our mission is to create industry-defining products and services that set a new global standard for period health. Four years ago we launched the most innovative period product since the tampon: the menstrual disc. It had been nearly 80 years since the tampon was introduced, and our new product was quickly embraced by consumers everywhere. Flex started as a digitally native brand with one product, and quickly grew to a family of period products sold online and in top national retailers such as Target, CVS, and Walgreens.
 
The Flex Disc™and Flex Cup™ generate 60% less waste than tampons and pads and can be worn for up to 12 hours, all while maintaining the highest level of comfort through inventive engineering and rigorous testing. 
 
This role is focused on the “deliver” portion of our supply chain and will be responsible for how our products make their way to our omnichannel customers.

About you:

  • You focus on optimizing things and recognize that today's nice-to-haves can quickly become tomorrow's must-haves.
  • You put yourself in the shoes of our customers and recognize that you're responsible for the partners who are the last people to touch our product, before it reaches our consumers.

  • Familiarity with retail (grocery, drug, and mass) logistics and routing guides

Our shared values:

  • Choose Love Over Fear: You make sound decisions from a belief in yourself, others, or opportunities rather than out of fear.

  • Have a Growth Mindset: You take constructive feedback well and actively seek feedback from colleagues. You are self-motivated to generate your best work and make a greater impact everyday.
  • Be You: You are comfortable being your authentic self at work (including in the interview!).
