A key pillar of our innovation strategy here at Australia Post is the Australia Post Accelerator. Created last year, the team are responsible for how we engage with new opportunities that are emerging in and around our industry as we develop our future.
This is a great chance to work in one of our startups. For an initial 6 month period we’re looking for you to be the driving force in operations innovation and help enable the future of commerce through a new innovative platform for e-commerce merchants.
Australia Post is always keen to promote a flexible work environment and are happy to consider applicants that are seeking a number of working arrangements.
What does the role look like?
- You’ll lead the development of a national network of connected warehouses
- Drive the experimentation with new forms of delivery systems, including future integrations with drones and autonomous vehicles
- Create processes and systems to improve quality, productivity, and people experiences (employee, consumer and merchant), working closely with technology and customer teams
- Develop roadmap for warehouse / operations automation
How can you stand out from the crowd?
We’re looking for someone that has a real passion for creating amazing customer and employee experiences and that loves solving problems and developing strategies for business and operational improvement. We work with a lean startup methodology and want people who live for the variety and scope for impact that comes with working in a startup or scaleup.
Ideally you’ll have worked within warehousing or logistics for a fast growing business or been involved with an e-commerce business that’s done similar. And finally given the focus of this exciting startup you’ll need to feel equally comfortable working on the ground in operations…and presenting to a board of directors!
This is a rare chance to learn and grow in a fast paced high performance environment. For us, an engaging, enjoyable workplace is the foundation for great work which is why your attitude and your passion is just as important to us as your experience.
