Accurate product level forecasting is critical to an efficient supply chain. It is also notoriously hard to get right. Wayfair is looking for a leader to drive our approach and execution for forecasting. We are looking for an analytically inclined person with sound business judgement and strong technical acumen to lead our forecasting team. This role is critical to driving Wayfair’s growth, by ensuring accurate forecasts that enable appropriate stock levels and efficient capital use.
The Associate Director of Demand planning and forecasting will lead a team of forecasting analysts who are executing the forecasting process. You will collaborate closely with internal and third party stakeholders to refine our forecasting algorithms and modeling inputs. You will own the forecasting process and have full responsibility for driving improvements in our forecasts. Successful forecasting is a foundational requirement for many downstream KPIs: In stock rates, inventory turns, delivery times and fulfillment services growth, to name a few. This role has a huge opportunity to drive results across all of our business lines. This is a leadership role that will be highly visible to our senior leaders.
The ideal candidate has successful cross functional project management experience, and can balance analytical thinking with effective communication. Interest in leading others and a vested interest in the team is a must. We welcome applications from high caliber professionals who are looking for the next chapter of their careers.
