Procurement/Import

Website OpenStore

OpenStore is Keith Rabois’ Miami-based Series B startup valued at reportedly more than $750M just seven months after founding. OpenStore is reimagining the future of e-commerce. Today, we’re building the technology and team to identify, value, acquire and scale long-tail e-commerce brands. We envision a future where emerging e-commerce brands have access to instant liquidity for their businesses and where consumers have ready access to the best, small-brand products.
Behind the scenes, we’re a team of experienced founders, operators, and software engineers who saw a chance to change the e-commerce landscape. We have grown our team 5x in size within the first year. We’re eager to continue expanding our team with humble achievers committed to excellence. OpenStore is founded by Keith Rabois, Jack Abraham, Michael Rubenstein, Matt Lanter and Jeremy Wood who bring a successful track record and expertise.
ABOUT THE ROLE
The procurement role sits within the Operations team and is accountable for purchasing products, demand planning, and supplier management for the brands that OpenStore acquires. Running many e-commerce stores at scale is complicated because it requires a range of software tools and solid operational processes across marketing, supply chain, customer service, on-site conversion optimization, and new product development. Underlying all of these functions is having enough of the right products to sell.
We will invest in your development and do everything we can to make sure this is one of your best professional experiences. We believe joining OpenStore will be a career-defining choice for employees.
