About the Role

With New Verticals, we're building Uber's fastest growing business. Global in scope, with a focus on our largest potential grocery and other new verticals markets, the team is responsible for all grocery and new verticals operations/sales/strategy across markets. This scrappy, nimble and high performing team is tasked with building a sustainable high growth business as we expand from restaurants to other high growth verticals. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let's move the world forward together.

We are looking for a passionate, committed, and flexible Merchandising and Procurement Manager to drive the success of our newest line of business of dark grocery stores. This role will be responsible for piloting a crucial growth initiative with impact on the long-term strategy of the business as a whole. This is a unique and exciting opportunity to test and define a brand-new business model that has the potential to scale rapidly within Taiwan.

What You'll Do:

• Procurement: Build and execute purchase orders from suppliers and set up accounts for new facilities. This will involve relationship management with suppliers and vendors as well as liaising with sales and operations teams to continuously improve sales opportunities.
• Demand planning: Contribute to demand management and efficiencies by maintaining metrics including but not limited to on-shelf rates, wastage, and out-of-item defects. In the medium to long term, contribute to building out supply and demand internal tooling.
• Supply Chain Optimization: Perform root-cause analysis to improve key metrics, including supplier performance, forecasting errors, and operational inefficiencies, and advocate for best practices within the organization.

• Previous experience in grocery and FMCG retailers, especially experience with fresh items, is a huge plus.
• A self-starter who thrives in ambiguity: Launching a new business model isn't easy, and there isn't an existing plan for you to follow. You'll have the support of your manager and cross-functional partners, but you'll need to be the one driving this forward autonomously.
• Partner management: You'll need to engage and acquire agreement from partners within and outside the organisation.
• Business level English
• Proficiency Excel/Google Sheets.
• Proficiency in SQL is a plus
