Wayfair is looking for an entrepreneurial leader to oversee our largest, and most well established furniture vertical. This vertical plays a key piece in the success of the broader business and continues to have high growth potential. We are looking for a leader to build the strategic vision and a team of excellence to drive the execution of that vision. In this senior leadership role, you will develop and implement specific category business plans achieving high growth results. Key responsibilities will include building/managing Category Management teams, expanding strategic selection in your categories, negotiating favorable business terms with key suppliers, identifying alternative sourcing strategies to drive better product economics, and driving a merchandising agenda across teams.
This is a general management role where you will be accountable for the growth and profitability of your categories and will partner closely with your cross-functional senior counterparts to drive the overall strategic agenda.
The ideal candidate will be a self-starter and creative problem solver with a passion for data and all things home. You’ll know your competitors inside and out. You’ll be responsible for recruiting, managing, coaching and developing your team. You’ll be dynamic and analytical—as comfortable leading a senior business review as you are analyzing large data sets to develop impactful insights. You will be able to define overarching goals and strategy, articulate and execute plans, and monitor and manage key business metrics. You will lead operational process improvements as well as drive efficiency gains with a continuous focus on deploying technology to enable business results.
This is a unique general management role for a highly motivated and energetic individual looking to join a high growth company and make a significant business impact.
