Inventory Planning Analyst

Coterie is a modern baby care brand for the uncompromising parent. We create smart, high-performing products that make parents’ lives easier, starting with our diaper. After extensive global research and over 2 years of development, we created a high-performance diaper that outperforms the competition on the attributes that matter most. It keeps your baby drier, longer to help minimize leakages, blowouts and the likelihood of diaper rash. Our diapers are 25% plant based, and use clothing-grade materials that make them extremely soft and gentle.

Coterie was recently named The Best Diaper by Parents Magazine. We are growing quickly and are thrilled to bring on new team members who are as excited about redefining the world of baby care as we are.
