Okra is looking for an experienced Inventory Manager with a meticulous eye for detail and precision. The mission of this role is to take full ownership of managing Okra’s inventory. Okra procures, manufactures, exports and distributes a range of hardware products and physical goods. The vast majority of our equipment is manufactured and assembled in China, and transported to various geographic markets around the world. The successful applicant will be responsible for maintaining accurate and detailed records of all such activities through the use of specialised tools and software, and frequent communications with other stakeholders (vendors, logistics, finance).
This role opens at a critical moment when the scope and complexity of our inventory data is outpacing internal expertise and available resourcing. In addition to creating immense productivity and efficiency improvements for Okra’s operations team, fulfilling this role will also ensure that inventory is optimally allocated so that our customers (energy utility companies), and their customers (last-mile communities), will always have access to sufficient stock of electrification equipment, and various other goods which are required to ensure projects run sustainably. Doing so successfully will have a direct impact on our overall quality of service, especially in relation to overall system uptime.
