We need curious, data-focused people who are spreadsheet nerds & love dogs above all else. #carrots4lyfe (this will make more sense to you if you meet Jeffrey).


We are currently looking for a detail oriented, dog-loving Planner to support our growing Eats business. The ideal candidate for this role will be a creative problem solver, master of inventory, & of course, dog-obsessed. This role will help us plan & forecast to ensure we have the right inventory for our customers needs.

Proactively monitor inventory expirations & lots to optimize movement of perishable inventory.
  • Supply Modeling & Risk Assessment: Work closely with the Demand Planning team & cross-functional partners to ensure the demand model reflects the latest trends & initiatives. Ensure our inventory levels are at the appropriate levels (both short-term & long-term) based on the demand model. Identify & communicate inventory risks & proposed solutions with cross-functional partners. 
  • Cross-Functional Collaboration: Work cross-functionally with counterparts on operations, sales, merchandising, marketing, purchasing & logistics teams to execute business strategies, leading by influence & challenging the status quo.


  • 3+ years of supply chain planning & analytics experience required
  • Experience & comfort working with & analyzing large data sets.
  • Experience working with perishable inventory preferred 


  • Expert in Excel & system-savvy
  • Strong attention to detail & proactively identify areas of risks/opportunities
  • Excellent interpersonal skills & influence cross-functionally 
  • Strong analytical skills with the ability to synthesize data to understand business trends & provide forward-thinking insight
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced environment & creative problem solver 
  • Must love dogs!

This position is a full-time position. We offer health insurance for both you & your pup, 401k, wonderful team lunches, cold brew on tap, & a dog to pet anytime you wish. 


Here at BARK, we love dogs & their people. Were looking to make all dogs happy throughout the entire world (were not kidding). Think Disney for dogs -- we make magic for dogs & their people through our products, events, & experiences. 

Our ambition level is high, the opportunity is huge, & our love for dogs is through the roof! We launched in 2011 with BarkBox, a monthly-themed subscription of all-natural treats & clever toys. Since then, we've shipped more than 70 million toys & treats to dogs across the world & use all of that direct customer feedback to inform new initiatives & ways to make magic between dogs & their people. Weve since expanded into other offerings as well, as we aim to become THE Dog Company for every family with a four-legged, belly-scratch-loving, interspecies family member.
