Distribution Area Manager (m/w/d)

Distribution Area Manager (m/w/d)


Picnic is the world’s fastest growing online supermarket with a simple mission: to make grocery shopping quick, easy and affordable for everyone. Our unique tech-driven approach enables us to work towards a greener and more sustainable future, with our fleet of 100% electric vehicles delivering fresh products from our warehouse to customers daily.

Your mission

Improve operational performance in our German hubs in liaison with teams on the ground. As part of the distribution team, you will coach and grow hub managers to improve their daily operations in process efficiency and customer experience.

What’s your challenge?

You will spot, mentor and grow today’s and tomorrow’s leaders of our operations at hub locations. You support our talented pool of runners, runner+ and hub managers to meet our challenging targets for on time delivery and customer experience. To do so, you will be identifying key levers for growth and efficiency, translating feedback to concrete actions and shepherding teams from zero to one to prepare them for a successful business. You are at the core of distribution operations, understanding all underlying strategies, systems, logistic processes and equipment.

Who are you?

You are a natural team player and a leader who loves to motivate and inspire large groups of people. You thrive in a fast-paced environment. You are always looking for ways to optimize processes and you are data driven in your approach. We do not necessarily look for people with retail experience. We seek people with the curiosity of a student, the mindset of a generalist and the creativity of an entrepreneur to be able to design the retail industry of the future. Since we grow 500% per year, everybody needs to be able to venture into unknown territories. If you thrive in such an environment and if you meet the requirements, Picnic is the right place for you!

What are the requirements?

  • Finished MSc. in Engineering, Supply Chain, Business Administration or related.
  • 1-3 years of work experience.
  • Strong, mature and confident.
  • Strong people and process focus.
  • Hands-on, get stuff done mentality.
  • An incredible drive to disrupt the world of grocery shopping.
  • Willingness to travel to different hub locations 
  • Preferably native German speaker

What are the perks?

Picnic has a lot of cool stuff to offer. We have an awesome start-up culture where everything you do matters! It’s also an environment where you can develop yourself super-fast and get the freedom to create your own future. Additionally, Picnic offers you a company car to be able to travel between the hubs.
