This is not a warehousing position - you won’t be working on a warehouse floor. Instead, you will be coordinating and orchestrating from the comfort of your remote workspace at home. This position is about keeping orders and returns flowing and ensuring that all parties who need to be kept informed of order statuses have all the information they need.
As our Order Processing & Fulfillment Specialist, you’ll play a vital role in bridging the gap between our 3PL Warehouse and our Production, Customer Services, Sales, and Purchasing teams to efficiently and accurately fulfill orders and electronically process returns. Your ability to maintain good relationships across departments, with our third-party partners, and with our customers is key. We're looking for someone who is passionate about getting things right the first time and is in the habit of double-checking work for quality and accuracy.
Your customer-facing soft skills will contribute to an excellent customer experience, especially when resolving order issues that impact our customers. You’ll need to be able to deliver information to customers, verbally and in writing, in a concise, digestible, and compassionate manner, empathizing with the frustrations that can come from shipping delays or other unexpected order issues.
This is a remote position that can be done from anywhere in the contiguous USA and work hours are 8:30 AM and 5 PM PST.
How to apply: To be considered for this position, include the following in your cover letter: Tell us how your ability to collaborate with team members has contributed to your success in previous positions. Then, tell us about your interest and background in Motorsports. If you have none, let us know why you’re interested in Apex!
