Posted 2 months ago

Position Description

If you are an engaging, charismatic leader who enjoys overcoming challenges and can successfully drive culture change, this very well may be the role for you! We're currently hiring an Ops leader who is focused on the customer, on their employees, and on their continued career growth. With so many of our leadership team having been promoted through this role in our Fortune 500, 80+-year-old company, this opportunity will present you with a great chance to build a stellar career, where the sky could truly be the limit (or at least lead to Dir/VP/P type roles in the future with time and wins of course).

As our Senior Operations Manager (internally titled "Senior Logistics Manager") you will be immediately responsible for a large customer site. You will manage and improve the services we provide to our customer while you develop and implement valuable customer performance measurements.

Importantly, you will have Profit and Loss responsibility (previous experience running a P&L is desired, but we'll also consider you if this is the next step in your development). You will be responsible for leading, guiding, educating and directing your onsite leadership team (consisting of 1 operations manager, 2 Supervisors, 3 Clerks, 40 to 50+ warehouse professionals onsite) to be highly effective in a Lean culture as you will have day-to-day responsibility of Receiving, Shipping, Inventory Control, continuous improvement and metric capturing.

Also, we realize that you may currently have a "director" title in your current organization but fit into this role. We're not really all that into titles here at Ryder, so we hope you won't hesitate to apply. Worst case scenario, you might not be right for this role but will start a great relationship with us that leads to a great match in the future!

Bottom line: If you are an engaging, charismatic leader who enjoys overcoming challenges and can successfully drive culture change, this very well may be the role for you!
