Demand Analyst

| Chicago
Home Chef is a rapidly growing meal kit delivery service, fueled by our customer-first mentality and incredible team. Our plant-based crew is the lifeblood of our organization, operating in a supportive environment that allows the workplace to feel like a home away from home. Our work product is a testament to what collaboration, heart, and hustle can accomplish when combined. If you’re ready to be part of the action, we’re ready to connect with you. There are no limits to where we can go together.
One of the most interesting and strategically important initiatives Home Chef is working on today is our expansion into retail following our deal with Kroger. Our success in retail will be heavily dependent on our ability to predict when, why, and how often customers will be purchasing our product. We are looking for an analytically minded individual to help build from scratch a predictive demand forecasting model and process for our retail business. This encompasses design, tool building, maintenance, and stakeholder communication. These forecasts will inform our entire operations planning as well as determine how much product we want to send to stores.
In addition, this role will have the opportunity to leverage predictive analytics on projects outside of demand forecasting such as those in the customer insights and operational realms. The ideal candidate is not just excited to build but also to work closely with other teams throughout Home Chef.
