Supply Chain Coordinator APPLY NOW

San Diego
Full time

As Uqora’s Supply Chain Coordinator, you’ll be the first stop on our supply chain. You’ll work on all of the ingredients and components necessary to manufacture Uqora’s eight products, handing the finished products off to our 3PL partner. 

About us:

Uqora makes innovative UTI relief products and proactive care supplements. 

UTIs are the second most common infection in the U.S., second only to the common cold. Despite the magnitude, there’s been little progress and innovation for years. Uqora is proud to be changing that. 

Since launching in 2017, Uqora’s been able to help nearly 200,000 people stay healthy. Uqora is very focused on creating exceptional products and a vibrant, collaborative community of customers. Recently, Uqora was acquired by Pharmavite, the owner of Nature Made, which will enable Uqora to go deeper on research and expand its reach. 

Uqora is growing quickly, and as the 20th full-time hire, you’ll have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on expanding Uqora’s reach through offline customer acquisition. 

Who you are: 

Multi-tasker: Juggling multiple projects simultaneously is a breeze for you. You know how to prioritize and you never let a ball drop.

Champion of continuous improvement: You value iterative improvement and believe that no matter how well systems and processes function, improvements can and should be pursued. 

Problem solver: You have a knack for breaking down and solving complex problems while keeping a customer-first mindset. You’re able to identify stakeholders, estimate impact, spot opportunities, and leverage feedback loops while working through challenges.

Organized: Organization is at the core of everything you do. You thrive in creating clear, organized, repeatable processes. 

Detail-oriented; It’s in your nature to double-check the details. You understand which projects require a ‘measure twice and cut once’ mentality. 

Communicative; You’re a natural collaborator and are comfortable managing internal and external stakeholders. You believe all problems can be solved with good communication, and are quick to speak up when you see an issue on the horizon. 

A sampling of what you’ll be doing: 

  • Managing co-man relationships, which includes PO lifecycles (order raw materials and components through to invoice recording) and ensuring we’re on track to hit timelines.
  • Continually assessing supplier performance, building redundancies of supplier networks, and onboarding new co-mans when necessary. 
  • Regularly conducting cost efficiencies across all component SKUs. 
  • Working with internal and external partners on product design processes and QC processes.
  • Work with Uqora’s parent company (Pharmavite) on regulatory protocols and product testing processes to ensure products are regulatory compliant and passing all necessary product testing on each PO. 
  • Own Uqora’s transition onto Pharmavite’s ERP System (JDE), collaborating with Pharmavite, educating Uqora’s teams, and ensuring correct input of all data into JDE.

Required experience:

  • 2-3 years experience in supply chain management 
  • Excel proficiency and basic data analysis skills 
  • Demonstrated experience managing external partners and full lifecycle management of component SKUs

Nice-to-have: 

  • Experience in e-commerce and retail 
  • Experience at small and large organizations 


Additional details: 

  • Based in San Diego, CA
  • Full-time, salaried 
  • Generous PTO policy (unlimited)
  • Health, vision, and dental benefits 


Inclusivity at Uqora:

Diversity and inclusion is a priority for us. At Uqora, we’re committed to making our employees and community members feel seen, heard, and valued - while honoring what makes us different. We promise to remain focused on this journey of growth so we can become better advocates for our community, and we’d love for you to join us on that mission!
