Looking for Director of Marketing
Alvie's hiring an Operations Assistant

Alvies is a boot and flip-flop brand that sells exclusively online and at events around Austin (well, when events were still a thing). Alvies is looking for a highly motivated key contributor to assist with operations for our fast-growing retail business.

The Operations Assistant position will handle a variety of responsibilities to keep up the day-to-day operations (hence the clever title) of our busy ecommerce brand. That includes everything from managing inventory to managing relationships to helping with bookkeeping and financial reporting/forecasting.

Reporting directly to the CEO, the Operations Assistant will use knowledge of our products and our business, flexibility (mental not physical, although physical can’t hurt), and nearly unlimited amounts of positive energy and can-do spirit to help our small team execute in a number of high-impact areas. And of course the best-of-the-best, Maverick-from-Top-Gun candidates will also have a passion for boots, flip-flops and beautiful Austin, Texas.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • 2–3 years of experience in operations, preferably in the ecommerce industry, with some finance experience; project management experience is a plus
  • College Degree
  • Strong understanding of how to manage ecommerce inventory and accounting
  • A head for numbers and heart for boots/flops
  • Customer service experience is a plus — a determination to wow customers with every interaction is a must
  • Strong knowledge of Excel and Quickbooks
  • The ability to wear a lot of different hats throughout the day (both metaphorically and literally)
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Strong affinity for and understanding of the Alvies brand, story and mission
  • A friendly demeanor and positive attitude bordering on the annoying

Job Responsibilities:

You’ll assist the company in a wide variety of areas, with one day never looking like another. If you enjoy boring, monotonous work with boring, monotonous people, this is probably not the gig for you. But your specific duties will definitely include:

  • Inventory management & tracking
  • Partner relationship management
  • Local product pickup and delivery
  • Bookkeeping and accounting
  • Cashflow reporting
  • Financial reporting & forecasting
  • Prep for year-end and tax filings

Leverage Texas McCombs MBA Students for your business

Curious if you’re targeting the right customer segments? Wondering which social media channels are best for your product? Questions on pricing or your business model that you want to research, but lack the time?

If so, please consider partnering with a UT-Austin MBA class, “Foundations of Entrepreneurship,” taught by Dr. Katie Pritchett. Students in this Spring 2021 class are required to partner with an emerging start-up to apply class concepts around Lean Startup and hypothesis-driven entrepreneurship. In a 6-8 week project, students partner with businesses to identify a small-scope research project to (in)validate areas of the business model to help the founders learn quickly on whether and how they should persist, pivot, or perish.

The goals are:

  • To identify a mutually beneficial project that meets both the class and the company’s needs.
  • To minimize client time while maximizing their learning.

In order to meet that need, the company must agree to a 60-90 minute scoping meeting with students in mid-to-late February and then be available for an average of 3 hours throughout the duration of the project for student questions. Deliverables include: executive summary with results and recommendations & 10-minute student presentations.

Clients are welcome to attend final presentations, but all will be recorded. Interested companies can complete this interest survey (2 mins to fill out).
