Logistics Specialist

Job description

Major League Hacking (MLH) is looking for someone to join our growing family and (currently virtual) New York City office as a Logistics Specialist. As part of our Operations team you will be responsible for overseeing the logistics and supply chain of our 250+ world class (presently digital) events.

Every year, MLH helps hundreds of community leaders around the world organize events for technologists and innovators.  Our full-time team provides everything these local event organizers need from the first day of planning through the successful end of the event.  As a Logistics Specialist, you’ll make sure events get the people and resources they need, that hackers get support where necessary, and that our team has the resources they need to be successful by managing our supply chain end-to-end from production to deployment at events. You'll work closely with our logistics partners including freight & fulfillment vendors to make it happen. 

While MLH's League is all about events, this role is all about managing the supplies and backend support that allow event organizers to do what they need.

If you’re someone who likes a todo list with a ton of different responsibilities, and loves seeing it complete at the end of the day, this is the role for you.

Key Duties and Responsibilities

  • Manage Supply Chain. In order to service hundreds of events worldwide each year we have a complicated supply chain with vendors who produce our stickers, stickers, swag, prizes, banners, and hardware. You'll work with them and our 3PL to manage our supply chain from end-to-end. Ultimately, you'll be responsible for making sure each of our events has everything it needs to be successful.

  • Solve problems. When you work with hundreds of events things are bound to go wrong, packages get stuck at customs, flights get delayed, you’ll be responsible for monitoring each event and solving problems as they occur.

  • Regular maintenance & administration. Each week, we need to check in on the 1-15 events that occurred in the last week, reviewing event supplies, making fixes to inventory and reporting issues. You’ll receive reports from our staff and make quick fixes and long-term changes to our processes to handle the ever changing environment of our League.

Benefits

  • Competitive salary

  • Stock options

  • Medical, dental, vision benefits and 401K

  • Unlimited PTO

  • Weekly team lunches

  • Travel opportunities
