SmartHalo is looking for a Logistician

Start Date: When we find the right person

About us: At SmartHalo, we believe that cycling is the future of urban mobility. It’s the solution to the pains of city life: pollution, congestion and overloaded public transit.  Using a savvy mix of cutting-edge technology and minimalist design, we’re encouraging people to choose their bikes.

We’re a team of creators: engineers, designers, business and sales people. We’re a passionate, hardworking bunch. Our offices are at the center of the universe (Montreal’s Mile-End). In 2015, we took Kickstarter by storm with an award-winning circular interface that resonated with cyclists all over the world. Now, we’ve shipped tens of thousands of units around the world, and are the only Canadian hardware product sold at the Apple Store. But the best is yet to come: we’ve only scratched the surface and we want to bring SmartHalo to every cyclist.

About you: We are looking for a talented logistician to help manage, optimize and scale our supply chain, from our suppliers all the way to the hands of our final clients.

  • Optimizing our cash-to-cash cycle by ordering and producing just the right number of subassemblies and final units at the just right time.
  • Collaborating with the Chief Hardware Officer to find cheaper alternative components that reduce costs and manage the scrap factor.
  • Collaborating with the Growth Strategist to forecast the number of units to be produced and organize its dispatch around the world.
  • Collaborating with the Financial Strategist to manage inventory and stabilize the gross margins.
