Job Description

HireArt is looking to hire a Logistics and Compliance Coordinator to work on-site at our client’s Redmond office on a contract basis. In this role, you’ll support teams dedicated to ensuring the quality and compliance of a dynamic consumer hardware supply chain for grounding-breaking AR/VR products.

As Logistics and Compliance Coordinator, you’ll be the primary liaison between suppliers, procurement, shipping, receiving, and logistics and trade core teams. 

We’re seeking candidates with experience in a logistics environment and in international shipping and receiving. The ideal candidate is also highly motivated, able to proactively execute against daily logistics and trade requirements, and comfortable collaborating and communicating with diverse teams in a fast-paced, tech-driven environment.  

Responsibilities: 

  • Engage suppliers to coordinate import/export details and ensure proper compliance. 
  • Submit HS Classification and ECCN requests for incoming and outgoing products.
