About The Position
Supply Chain Planning Manager 
Position Location: Seattle 
Reports to: Director of Supply Chain

About the Company
SkinnyDipped was founded by mom/daughter duo Val and Breezy Griffith after losing a close friend to cancer. A young person’s death takes you a long way toward reconsidering your own life’s priorities, and Breezy and Val knew they wanted to spend more time together. So they decided to start a business – and based on the love of food Val had inspired in the family, it only made sense that that they’d focus on snacks. 
In the early days, Val, Breezy and their friends/co-founders Lizzie Resta and Chrissy Haller hand-dipped individual almonds with a fork and dried them on their kitchen table, then drove literal truckloads of nuts around Washington state. Now, 6 years (and thousands of nuts roasted) later, SkinnyDipped is #292 on the Inc 5000, has expanded its products to include Cashews and Peanuts as well as Peanut Butter Cups & Chocolate bars, and has grown to national distribution at major retailers like Target, Walmart and Kroger as well as Amazon.  
Our Mission 
We craft ethical food that makes you and your body happy. We believe everyone deserves to eat the kind of nutritious, clean, delicious food we’re fortunate enough to share with our own families and friends. We work to raise up and support women and the children they care for in both our local communities and around the globe because no child should go without food or an education.
