  • Brand-new, state-of-the-art Warehouse in 2022

If you’d like to work in a 700k square foot, state of the art Warehouse equipped with AI, robotics, and the latest D365 technology, you need to read this!

In the words of their CFO, Learning Resources (LR) is one of America’s best-kept secrets. Why? Because of their mission.

Their mission is simple: “To help kids love to learn”. They do this by creating the worlds best children’s educational toys & games, selling over 1,000 products to 100+ countries globally.

As their Dynamics 365 Warehouse Business Analyst, your role in their mission cannot be understated. Why? Because distribution is critical to its success. They are gearing up to Go Live with D365 in 2022, and the leadership team is going all-in with technology.

LR will rely on your passion for Warehouse technology to implement ERP solutions that enable them to maintain operational excellence.

In summary: you’ll be working with a leadership that will encourage you to learn the latest D365 technologies, in turn contributing to educating children all over the world.

How you will help LR in their Mission:

Lots of companies talk about being mission-driven, but once you spend 10 minutes with the leadership team at LR, as I did- it is obvious how excited they are to be living their mission every day. Because of this, their culture is one of a kind. 

Voted one of Chicago’s Best Places to Work for the last 2 years, teamwork and collaboration run deeply through the organization.

It doesn’t get more empowering than preparing children to take on the world. LR can’t ignite passion and fuel kids’ creativity without operational and distribution excellence within the Warehouse. Which is where you step in!

As their D365 Business Analyst, you will be instrumental in the set-up and continual improvement of their Warehouse capabilities in relation to their ERP. You will be empowered by the leadership team to stay current & curious with all the latest Microsoft technologies and encouraged to be at Microsoft conferences to learn.

We hope by now you are as excited as we are about you finding out more, so what better way to do that than to hear directly from the leadership team at LR?
