What began as a historic pottery in 1948, has evolved into a collection of businesses anchored in designing and making products, spaces, and experiences of exceptional beauty and uncompromising integrity. We are a manufacturer, led by design and sustainable business practices. We have a very diverse workplace of around 200 employees that encompasses manufacturing, retail, design, communications, digital, and administrative functions. Our original Sausalito location houses our dinnerware factory and showroom. Heath San Francisco houses our tile factory, along with a showroom, and clay studio; our SF Ferry Building location is a small, but mighty, showroom; and Heath LA, a showroom and clay studio.

In addition to manufacturing and selling dinnerware and architectural tile, Heath Ceramics also finds and sells tabletop accessories and furniture, along with gallery collections for four retail showrooms in California plus an E-commerce platform that serves customers worldwide. These products are called Heath Home.
This position is responsible for supporting vendor management, the purchasing of core third party merchandise, and product flow to our showrooms as part of a team executing a multi-store Heath Home product procurement and distribution strategy that ensures Heath showrooms have the right product, in the right quantities, in the right place, and at the right time. Some crossover and awareness of our dinnerware product is also involved. Successful execution in this position means lean and steady stock levels that maintain designated products in the showrooms that sell through when targeted and at targeted gross margins. Responsibility is for the full product cycle: from bringing it into the warehouse and showrooms, all the way to sell-through.
The position works closely with the Buyer and Visual Merchandising Manager, the operations team, retail teams, and the warehouse and fulfillment team in managing the core third party assortment and quantity of product in each showroom to ensure goals are met.
