Job Description

COMPANY DESCRIPTION

At Beyond Meat, we started with simple questions. Why do you need an animal to create meat? Why can’t you build meat directly from plants? It turns out you can. So we did. We make plant-based meats that allow families to eat more, not less, of the traditional dishes they love while feeling great about the health, sustainability, and animal welfare benefits of plant protein. Our goal is to bring exciting change to the plate—and Beyond.

OVERVIEW

As Beyond Meat continues to strive to deliver its products faster, better and cheaper, this newly created role will be responsible for driving a team of Inventory Control specialists to drive an improved experience for our internal and external customers worldwide.  You will be the single-threaded leader to drive the day-to-day execution of our Inventory network, inventory optimization and system integration.
