about the role

Alyssa Harney, Logistics Manager

"As Warehousing Operations Lead, you will focus on communicating with different departments. It’s essential to keep an overview of our operations because it is easy to get caught up in the details during peak times in the season. You will attend seasonal preparation meetings during the year. You will be involved in the forecast and work together with the dealer-service team to fulfill customer demands. You are also expected to travel on a regular basis to our warehouse and liaise with the local team there "

"We are in business to save our home planet. Your role will contribute to this mission by making sure that our products are brought to our warehouse and, from there, delivered to our customers in the most efficient way, balancing cost, speed and our impact on the environment.
“It is important for this role that you have a couple of years’ experience in a warehouse environment and working with logistics processes. You will have a number of different stakeholders and data to manage so it is crucial you are conscientious and analytical. Retail and / or apparel experience is a plus. If you have an innovative and pro-active approach, you can make impact in this increasingly important role."

"As a Warehousing Operations Lead, you will successfully guide and implement the movement to our new warehouse and understand the seasonality of the Patagonia business. You will build dashboards which combine information of reports to gain control of our end to end processes."
