Pizza is the ultimate shareable food; slice by slice, it brings people together. Heck, we believe pizza makes the world a better place. Of course, some might say we're biased — after all, Ooni created the world’s first portable pizza oven — but is there anything better than a hot, fresh Margherita? We think not.

Speaking of togetherness, we are looking for a smart, hard-working individual to join our team at HQ as a Freight and Shipping Champion. We need a driven individual with experience in global shipping operations and a passion for precision to work with our Logistics team.

  • Assess and make recommendations for shipping processes with potential new suppliers and advise of cost implications and efficiency
  • Support continuous improvement initiatives and identify inefficiencies and cost optimisation opportunities
  • Negotiate and contract with shipping suppliers
  • Manage database of SKU classification for international shipments
  • Ensure great communication across the business and keep a close eye on performance data via our platforms.
