One of the coolest ecommerce jobs around!
HARRY’S COMMENTS: We are working with Bimbo Bakeries in their search for a
based in Norristown, PA, just 20 minutes outside of Philadelphia.
With more than 20,000 employees, Bimbo Bakeries USA is an integral part of Grupo Bimbo, the world’s largest baking company with operations in 22 countries. Grupo Bimbo’s product portfolio includes brands like Arnold®, Oroweat®, Thomas’® English muffins, Sara Lee®, and Entenmann’s®.
I don’t know about you, but my family buys some of these brands every week. Maybe yours does, too. Which is what makes Bimbo Bakeries such a great business.
About the Role
This is a new role that involves a LOT of high visibility account management with one of America’s leading grocers. Bimbo’s products are already available throughout this grocer’s system, but this account is making huge investments in ecommerce.
This ecommerce job involves understanding the chain’s in-store and online priorities for the baking category and making Bimbo the chain’s go-to resource for ideas and opportunities to grow the business.
For example …
The chain believes that it must make better use of its data while accelerating its digital efforts to meet changing consumer expectations for ease, speed and personalization. Grocery customers like to engage brands (like Arnold) in multiple ways, so improving the quality of digital experiences and making the chain’s online technology work seamlessly with stores is vital to winning and keeping customers.
The $64 Question: How can you help this chain in ways that improve efficiency while driving loyalty and revenue growth for Bimbo?
Here’s another one: The chain has added an online ordering service that enables customers to shop online and pick up at the store from the convenience of a car. The chain’s associates will even bring out the order and load it into the car. How can Bimbo be a part of that??
If you think brick and mortar is dying, then why the heck did Amazon buy Whole Foods?
Fact is, there’s a ton of great stuff happening in the grocery industry — and this chain in particular is making billion dollar bets on things like IoT sensors, video analytics, machine learning networks, robotics and artificial intelligence. How will all that impact Bimbo Bakeries? You tell us!
