Hydrian was founded in 2014 and has grown exponentially over the past 6 years without outside investment. We hope to accelerate the organic growth of the past and are looking for individuals to match that ambition. We are hiring consultants for our Chicago office, though we are currently 100% remote due to COVID. We are a small company and this position tends to wear many hats, including sales and marketing, analytics, and client management.
Our company solves a basic and universal problem for people who hold and sell inventory: how do I minimize the money tied up in my warehouse, while ensuring I have items in-stock when customers want to buy them? We’ve built some incredible tools to help us solve that problem, and we’ve married those tools to an ongoing consulting model - “inventory optimization as a service” - that is unlike anything in our industry.
In most consulting relationships, data is collected and analyzed, and then recommendations are delivered to leadership. Whether the client actually chooses to execute those recommendations, and whether or not they are successful at doing so, is pretty much completely out of the consultant's hands.
At Hydrian, we go through that same initial process, but then we work with clients on an ongoing basis on the execution. We use proprietary software we've developed to deliver daily recommendations, working closely with our clients' operational teams. As a result, our work never sits unused on a shelf - you'll be intimately involved in seeing things through and continuing to deliver value over time.
Aside from giving your work more meaning, this also means that you aren't constantly upselling and trying to come up with new ways to extract value from clients; they pay a flat monthly fee, and they can stop any time. It's a testament to our work that despite the "easy in, easy out" nature of our relationships, we have under 5% annual churn among our client base.
Depending on your interest, this job could lean more heavily on client meetings and other personal interaction, or have very little of it. In any event, we highly value work/life balance - even post-COVID, travel will be no more than 15%, and work weeks are consistently 40-50 hours. Compensation will be competitive with larger firms and include a significant equity component.
We use the data platform Alteryx for a lot of our analysis, but we'll teach that on the job, and strong Excel skills are all that's really required for new hires. We'll also teach you all about inventory optimization, supply chain management, and how to use the proprietary software that sits at the core of our business. Experience with related concepts is great, but not required.
