Who are we? 

We’re Wayfair, the largest online-only retailer of home furnishings and house wares in the United States and we’ve made Berlin our new European Headquarters! Joss & Main, one of Wayfair’s brands, is a leading online member’s only & flash sale boutique for home interiors and is expanding across Europe. The Joss & Main team is tight-knit, collaborative and entrepreneurial in spirit. The Events Production team launches multiple flash sales events with hundreds of products each day. The team ensures the marketing content (imagery and product descriptions) are accurate and presented in a compelling manner for our customers. 

As we continue to grow our German presence, we require a hands on Manager to directly manage a team of online Merchandisers and continuously drive processes improvements. Fluency in German and English is essential and a basic understanding of French is highly desirable but not essential. The ideal candidate will have a few years’ experience within an operational management capacity. We are looking for somebody ready to hit the ground running within a fast paced and ever evolving environment. The nature of the role requires someone who is flexible, detail-oriented, and comfortable working with multiple teams, partners and management.

·         Act as end-to-end owner of the merchandising process and coordinate across cross-functional teams including Buying, Production, Creative, and Technology

·         Drive customer satisfaction by reducing cancellation and backorder rates, and by constantly improving the quality of product information

·         Partner with manager to drive process improvement, define product data standards and set throughput targets

·         Collaborate with cross-functional teams in Buying and Production to ensure timely, accurate event submissions and launches

·         Serve as escalation point for issues in the merchandising process

·         Exhibit flexibility and patience with the ability to accommodate last minute additions and changes in direction

·         Develop and maintain industry knowledge; stay on top of category and market trends

Who Wayfair is looking for: 

·         Experience in managing an operational, merchandising or other relevant team is preferred

·         Business analytics experience is a plus

·         Ability to work in English and German

·         Articulate, persuasive communicator with strong negotiating skills

·         Effective team motivator with experience managing 2 or more direct reports

·         Savvy, quick thinking and comfortable in a dynamic, fast-moving environment

·         Goal oriented, entrepreneurial self-starter

·         Analytical thinker who looks for answers in the data

·         Bachelor degree

·         Excel proficiency a must

·         Familiarity with SQL a plus


And finally, our proposition to you!

Of course the usual competitive salary, bonus, office snacks and drinks and Friday evening beers, but also…

·         An awesome team right in the startup hub of Berlin, Kreuzberg

·         A huge opportunity to be an early entrant and set the stage with us

·         Career path guidance

·         We want to share our company with you in stock units

·         We pitch in to your gym membership and office sport events

·         Monthly team events

·         And let’s not forget the chance to join the next global giant in ecommerce
