What This Entails:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is seeking an Off-Centered Production Buyer to join our busy team. In this critical role you’ll be working your magic to source all the great ingredients and raw materials needed for our fabulous off-centered brews, spirits and more! The qualified candidate will be a master of negotiation, ensuring the best pricing, quality and service while identifying, building and managing relationships with vendors and suppliers. The successful candidate must be tenacious and relentless in their pursuit of awesome stuff, whether ingredients or other materials, whether plentiful or rare. A working understanding of distribution tiers is pretty important to this role, as well as a strong practical knowledge of when to stay local versus when to go broad with sourcing. In this role, you’ll arrange and track orders and shipments to ensure we’ve got what we need, as negotiated, on time. In this role you must balance real time demands with future expectations to plan your business forward to ensure forecasted brews and projects are well prepared. To thrive in this role you must be a tireless collaborator who enjoys fulfilling the needs of other teams and who shuns status quo. In this role, you’ll need stellar attention to detail as you’ll be making commitments, reconciling and coding invoices and performing weekly physical inventory counts. A reverence for safety is necessary as well as a healthy appreciation for craft beer and spirits, the Dogfish brand and off-centeredness.
What You Need To Land This Gig:
The qualified candidate will hold an Associate degree or higher with a business concentration and will bring with them 5-7 years of experience in procurement, sourcing/supply chain, contracting and inventory management. Excellent spreadsheet skills with Microsoft Excel are required as this will be the primary tool you use. We’ll go gaga for a candidate with outstanding communication skills, both verbal and written, who is organized, self-motived and detailed. A can-do attitude and your knack for tireless collaboration will make us swoon.
Bundle Of Goodies:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery offers competitive compensation including bonus potential, 401K company match, a fabulous health care package to include health/dental/vision and most importantly perhaps FREE beer!
