Associate Online Buyer for Joss & Main (m/f)
Beginn: November 2014
@ Joss & Main we have a truly exciting opportunity to join our Buying team as an Associate Buyer and build up a strong, diverse and truly comprehensive supplier network in the Danish market so that we can offer our customers the most wide ranging online catalogue of products available and the most enticing daily sales events.
…….You may ask, what will me job entail and what will I do each day?
Good question…….let me explain
Your main task will be to expand the network of supplier partnerships within your assigned territory in order to build out a truly comprehensive online catalogue offering and as Joss & Main is a Flash Sales site offering daily sales events you will be responsible for producing and running a set number of daily and weekly online sales events.
You will work very closely with the Joss & Main Merchandising and Event Production teams to create events that our customers cannot ignore and strongly drive sales and revenue generation. Analysis will be the bedrock of all decision making and you will closely analyze event and product sales performance to constantly ensure we are giving our customers compelling online offerings and growing our revenues and profits in line with this.
You will also take part in attendance at trade shows, work with other departments within Joss & Main to drive improvements and growth and constantly keep up to speed with competitor and market trends as well as enjoy the unique culture and spirit within Wayfairs Berlin office!
This is a role where you will have real and genuine responsibility and ownership of your territory………so ask yourself is this what you want in your next challenge?
.......Now I am sure you want to know what we want from you and what we look for in candidate
This is it…….
We look for strong academic performers in areas such as business, economics, marketing and digital media amongst others.
We look for people with some related work experience. This can be internship based during your education or post education work experience. Buying experience is great but other related experience in online or traditional retail will also be considered if you have a proven track record of achievement in both your academic and work life.
We need strong and confident communicators able to grow the supplier network. Shy and not able to pick up the phone and deal and negotiate terms with suppliers will not work @ Joss & Main.
You have to be analytically strong, able to read and understand data and make sound and clever business decisions based on your interpretations of the data. Strong Excel skills are key.
A passion for home and living products is a must, as is a creative flair.
You need to be driven and dynamic, a quick thinker and excited about working in a fast moving industry.
Fluency in Danish is a must and some knowledge of dealing with suppliers/clients in this territory would be a major plus.
If what we look for describes you, and you have read that far then I think you liked how a career as an Associate Buyer @ Joss & Main sounds?
If so and you truly want to work for a dynamic and rapidly growing online company where you will have real ownership of your role and the ability to make a difference and grow a career then apply today.
We offer a competitive salary and bonus structure, an excellent benefits package including stock options, a fun and exciting office culture and the chance for fast career growth for strong achievers.
