Our Opportunity:

We are centered on our three company values: (1) Wow the Customer, (2) Keep it Simple, and (3) Grow. As a Category/Sourcing Manager, you will lead an indirect procurement sub-category and be responsible for managing all sourcing, contracting, supplier management and other procurement activities within the sub-category (HR, Legal, Finance as examples).  This leadership role is instrumental in managing spend for the organization and developing partnerships with internal/external resources.  This is an opportunity to demonstrate stewardship in optimizing Chewy’s spend and its supplier relationships.

  • Collaborate with internal stakeholders (cross-functional) and advise on procurement practices, providing expertise, support and guidance at all stages of the procurement cycle.
  • Lead negotiations within your respective sub-category.
  • Manage suppliers and monitor contract performance.
  • Review specifications, analyze market, and select potential suppliers, lead the RFx process, analyze prices/quality expectations/delivery dates/terms, negotiate prices and terms, and award suppliers.
  • Analyze spend and other data while also conducting regular market benchmarking.
  • Responsible for developing content for monthly procurement business reviews with internal stakeholders.
  • Foster and develop relationships with multiple departments, business partners and vendors/suppliers.
  • Build and analyze pricing models based on stakeholders’ requirements in collaboration with Finance.
  • Transform multiple and complex streams of information into simple, clear and concise terms to be presented to stakeholders.
  • Domestic travel as needed.

What You'll Need:

  • 2-5 years of experience in strategic sourcing, category, and procurement. Global experience a plus. 
  • Demonstrate ability to create a category and negotiation strategy.
  • Ability to work with cross functional teams in a global, complex, changing environment to deliver value-driven results.
  • Strong negotiation and contracting experience.
  • Prefer experience in negotiating technology agreements
  • Exceptional organizational and project management skills to be able to work on multiple initiatives simultaneously.
  • Exceptional verbal and written communication skills with both internal and external stakeholders.
  • Strong working knowledge of standard Microsoft Office applications.
  • Intermediate to Advanced level Excel proficiency.
  • Experience running competitive request for proposals (RFPs).
  • BA or BS required; MBA preferred. Procurement Certifications are a plus.
