Sourcing Coordinator

About the Role
As a fast-growing business with a purpose on sustainability, we work quickly (but thoughtfully) and are looking for self-starters who can manage their own workload and shift priorities on a day-to-day basis.

The role will also involve working closely with other teams within the business — from CRMs and NPD to China Sourcing team and Operations  — in order to bring market products that our customers love and our manufacturers can make.

About us

Our mission is to make global supply-chain sustainability more rigorous, transparent and achievable for every business.

Sourceful was founded in 2020 by Wing Chan and Shiran Zheng. Together they had spent years helping build and scale global brands. As they did, it became clear that sustainability poses major challenges for businesses.

Global supply chains are complex. Affordable options are scarce. Reliable data is thin. And the language around sustainability is opaque. With these roadblocks, businesses can't make progress — and they can't address the climate crisis.

Sourceful was created to fix this: to help companies overcome the hurdles they face, reduce their carbon footprint and offer their customers better choices.

We ​look forward to hearing from you!
