Supply Chain Director

OPERATIONS - San Diego, California

About Smashtech

We’re on a mission to disrupt the health and wellness industry by creating and maintaining full control over our own eCommerce brands and products.

We make living a healthy lifestyle simple, but how we do it is a far better story. When we say we create brands, we mean we actually dream them up and turn them into ecommerce sensations by managing everything in house.

We do it all from research & development, manufacturing, design, branding, marketing, media, sales, and customer service, for every brand we create. It may seem like a mouthful, but we don’t want anything to slow us down, hinder our agility, or tarnish our customer experience, and the best way to do that is to do it yourself. We’re not an agency, we don’t have clients, we simply create, manage, and own everything we touch.

The world is evolving fast, and we’re in the driver’s seat. We’re one of the fastest growing companies in San Diego, and because of our amazing culture, we’re featured by Inc. Magazine as one of top 50 Best Workplaces in the country. And this is just the beginning.

Recent Awards:

  • Top 50 Best Workplaces in America 2017-2018 – Inc. Magazine
  • Best Places to Work 2016 & 2017 – San Diego Business Journal
