The Essential is e-commerce 2.0.
What we do We make and sell the single best version of all your essentials, at the best price possible.
How we do it We're not an "everything store."We sell only the essentials, we're members-only and we only sell our own brand. We cut out the middlemen, the brands, the physical stores and the markups — to make products cost a lot less, all while paying the producer more.
Why we do it To add meaning to people’s lives through products they use and love, made by people who know and care, with stories that matter, and means that are honest.
The Essential is looking for a Head of Operations to oversee distribution across multiple warehouses nationwide. The role will be primarily based in San Francisco, where our primary warehouse is located. We ship everything from frozen meals to produce to furniture so experience with distribution and warehouse management is a must. The Head of Operations will report to the CEO directly, and will work in concert with our other departments to ensure the best possible customer experience.
We use a combination of off-the shelf e-commerce parts for the basics (Shopify Plus etc) and custom, homebuilt tech for the more unique pieces such as supply chain analytics, predictive algorithms etc.
