The Supply Chain Operations Planning (SCOP) team plays a critical role in enabling all markets to achieve their expansion plan by using data to drive resource allocation decisions. We partner with cross functional partners such as Local Operations, Hardware, Supply Chain, and Logistics to make sure every decision we make is aligned with the overall company strategy. The team leads the global strategy for fleet allocation and the process for spare parts ordering. Additionally, the team owns the recommendation process on how many vehicles (scooters, bikes) to order and oversees all the inventory at Lime. This team sits within Strategy and Planning, and frequently interacts with operations and functional leaders across Lime.

We are looking for a Program Manager to drive the Fleet Planning process. This includes owning the demand/supply model to optimize our inventory to match the demand from local markets. You’ll be working with local teams to ensure plans are achievable and aligned with their growth projections. In addition, you’ll collaborate with Supply Chain focused teams (Logistics, Production, Procurement) which requires strong collaboration and a willingness to dive deep into the complexities of supply chain processes and planning.

    • Represent the SCOP team in the ERP implementation to ensure our business requirements are met in this critical project
    • Use your business judgement to make critical trade-off decisions across various stakeholders

About You:

    • Exceptional Excel/Google Sheets/data management skills, plus writing code in SQL to turn dynamic datasets into actionable insights
