HARRY’S COMMENTS: We are working with a Confidential Client in their search for a home-based Ecommerce Account Manager. Have you ever worked from home? I work from home and it’s flat out amazing.
About the Company
My client is a billion-dollar global office furniture behemoth and its brands are among the most widely known in the industry. The strength if its brands, the scale its international manufacturing, and the breadth of it distribution allows it to offer solutions to meet the needs of nearly every North American customer.
For more than twenty years, the company has marketed affordable, high-quality furniture through a dealer network serving a variety of markets including home and hospitality, health care and educational facilities, and government offices and businesses. CEO magazine lists the firm as one of the world’s best companies for leadership development, which is great news for any rising star.
About the Role
As a leading furniture manufacturer, importer and distributor, this client’s products are sold through a variety of retailers, print catalogs, and etailers including Amazon, Staples, Wayfair, Walmart, Costco, HomeDepot, and Overstock (to name a few). This job will focus on managing the client’s rapidly growing 1P business with Amazon.
FYI, this is not a small-volume Amazon relationship. To the contrary, it’s really big.
To win in this six-figure job, you MUST have proven experience with Vendor Central. I’ll say it again: “Proven!” And because the client is already doing a TON of direct business with Amazon, you’ll be charged with things like catalog hygiene, improving prices, margin management, 6-hour shipping, drop shipping, improving the supply chain, and more. The $64 question is: Can you huff the flames of this business into a bonfire?
