Clutter is an on-demand, technology company based in Los Angeles that is disrupting the $50B/year self-storage and moving industries. We’ve built an end-to-end logistics and supply chain platform, enabling us to offer consumers a much more convenient solution at price parity with the incumbents. We’ve raised $300M from a number of VCs, including Softbank, Sequoia Capital, Atomico and GV (formerly Google Ventures). We have 1,000+ team members and tens of thousands of customers in 7 major markets across the US with plans to be in 50+ markets, domestically and internationally, within the next 5 years!

At Clutter, we're fortunate to be providing a consumer value proposition that people love and one that makes economic sense - a true product/market fit that few startups ever find. To deliver on our promise to consumers, team members and investors, we've focused on hiring, training and retaining exceptional individuals. This means that we have a very thorough interview process and maintain high performance expectations, but we'll always be transparent with you and respectful of your time. 

The opportunity:

We are looking for a process-oriented Head of Procurement to build out and manage Clutter's entire procurement function. This person will oversee procurement across Clutter's national supply chain, including our 10+ field office locations, 8 warehouse/distribution centers, 2 corporate offices, and multi-hundred vehicle fleet. This individual will need to be an effective hands-on operator as well as a strategic partner to numerous key stakeholders and our executive team.

What you'll do:

  • Fully own Clutter's procurement function - manage all processes related to procurement and serve as a close partner to the accounting and FP&A teams
  • Work closely with our Finance and Growth teams to forecast procurement needs on a monthly/quarterly/annual basis
  • Build out a comprehensive, enterprise-wide sourcing policy to ensure proper procurement processes and controls for the organization
  • Establish a reliable and robust vendor network and manage their effectiveness through specific KPIs
  • Continuously drive down procurement costs and strike the right balance between stocking costs and stock-out risk
  • Serve as the champion for various stakeholders' procurement needs across the company
  • Evaluate, negotiate, and oversee a wide range of vendor contracts to drive companywide P&L savings

What we're looking for:

  • Bachelor’s degree in a related field preferred
  • 5-10 years of experience in procurement or a related field; experience within a distribution or logistics environment a plus
  • Strong demonstrated knowledge of procurement best practices, as well as strong financial acumen
  • Experience managing numerous vendor negotiations and relationships 
  • Demonstrated ability to project manage effectively and work in a team environment to achieve results
  • Ability to handle competing deadlines, set priorities, and establish processes in a fast-paced startup environment
  • Strong analytical skills and proven ability to work and communicate with all levels of the organization

Clutter is committed to fostering a fair, inclusive, and equal work environment. We strive to create a workplace that reflects the communities that we serve, where each team member is empowered to come to work as their true self. Diverse teams are more successful, which is why Clutter aims to be a leader in workplace equality and move both our company and the industry forward.

An Insider's view of Clutter

What are some social events your company does?

During our hackathons, our Product and Engineering teams get together with the rest of Clutter to identify and solve existing and future challenges and deliver a working tech solution within 48 hours, including a chatbot to automate customer interactions and a robot prototype for our warehouses!

Dean

VP of Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

I love bouncing around from building an A/B testing platform from scratch to launching new verticals to automating processes that make our teams more efficient. I'm now helping Clutter diversify its marketing funnel by expanding our SEO efforts. It's a mix of design, data, strategy, and automation, and it let's me flex different product muscles!

Liora

Senior Product Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

I joined Clutter as a Jr. Marketer, was promoted to Manager within a few months and most recently moved to the Product team! I’ve not only experienced a great deal of professional growth, but my career has been shaped entirely.

Allie

Associate Product Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We share the product specifications with all engineers in advance and let them express their feedback and technical opinions so that both Product and Engineers are aligned in understanding what we are building, why, and in which timeframe.

Chris

Director of Engineering

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We are obsessed with redefining the storage customer experience using technology. Our field operations are complex and communicating the right information at the right time is important so customers can plan their day accordingly. Real-time, thoughtful communication makes an already stressful process of storing and moving that much easier for them.
