About The Position
Inventory & Logistics Analyst 
 
Cora is a modern women’s wellness brand infusing good into a category rife with unhealthy products and outdated notions of womanhood. 
 
At Cora, we believe women and their bodies are naturally powerful, so we make naturally powerful goods for the body, that are good for her body, while doing good in the world. 
 
Our mission is to revolutionize the female experience by acknowledging the natural power of female bodies and providing healthy, thoughtful ways to care for them. We create fearless content and innovative products through an elevated brand to shift the way women perceive and manage their periods, bladder leaks, post-birth recovery, and other natural experiences.
 
And with every Cora purchase, we provide period pads and health education to a girl in need in a developing country so she can step boldly into the promise of her future.
 
After just four years in market, Cora has achieved the highest brand equity in the $6B U.S. Feminine Care category. As Cora continues to scale--in terms of products, channels, and revenue--We are seeking a dynamic, energized and most importantly, experienced Inventory & Logistics Analyst who specializes in warehousing, inventory control and international/domestic logistics to oversee efficient transportation, receipt, storage, fulfillment, and distribution of our wide variety of personal care products.
