Senior Analyst, Supply Chain Strategy

| Greater Denver Area
Skupos is the data platform for the convenience retail industry. Retailers, distributors, and brands connect to the Skupos network to create value from disparate data. Convenience retail is a long-standing industry with limited technology adoption, but is responsible for more revenue annually than all of e-commerce in the United States. Skupos leverages our massive datasets to build tools that help the industry succeed.
Skupos software integrates at a retailer’s point of sale, generates analytical insights, and automates the inventory and ordering process. For distributors and CPG brands, we provide real-time visibility into consumer purchasing decisions and enable automated promotional discounts at the point of sale. We view our company as revolutionizing a brick-and-mortar industry by bringing cutting-edge technology to physical stores, and helping harness data to create a frictionless connection between millions of people and the products they need.
Role:
As a Senior Analyst for Supply Chain Solution Strategy at Skupos, you will help to identify the analyses, run the numbers, and draw the conclusions that measure the value we deliver for our customers. You enjoy thinking through the questions that prove business value, identifying the data needed to answer those questions, crunching numbers, and clearly articulating results. Your skill in drawing conclusions from data will help our customers measure the improvement that Skupos drives in their supply chain operations. Given your customer-facing analysis, you should have a strong business acumen and be able to interface well with customers in person or on the phone to give voice to your findings. Problem-solving skills and attention to detail are essential. Ideally you have experience and interest in logistics and supply chain processes, potentially in CPG distribution.
Team:
The role will be part of our Strategy & Growth team, which is a small cross-functional group that works on different business problems across the company. As our first Analyst on the Strategy team, you will play a critical role in building out the framework that defines “measuring success” for our supply chain customers. We strive to learn fast, think fast, and move fast. People development is a top priority, so frequent feedback is expected and encouraged from all team members.

An Insider's view of Skupos

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Life at Skupos provides employees with a balance of being relaxed and autonomous, but we all work really hard & go above and beyond to get our jobs done. If you need a breather, it's cool to take a break and play some ping pong. There is also a solid sense of camaraderie & collaboration throughout the office that extends across the different teams.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As the Salesforce Admin, I am constantly working with all departments across the company. Collaborating w/ this many people requires that I am easily accessible to both SF & Denver offices. To ensure this happens, I set up weekly meetings w/ each team to discuss their needs, as well as a meeting for everyone to attend so we're all on the same page.

What are some social events your company does?

From our Friday team lunches to happy hour on our patio, Skupeeps are always interacting. We have an annual company retreat, quarterly department outings and tons of karaoke! Each holiday we have our own celebration for anyone to join! My favorite part about Skupos is the constant social interaction with one another and our close family dynamic.
