Have you been out there in the land of ecommerce, crushing a merchandising role and learning all there is to learn about giving customers a seamless online experience? If that’s you, then we’ve got a great gig here for you: serving as the link between the merchandising and content teams for a huge fashion retailer. It’s a chance to sharpen your skills and develop new ones, setting yourself up for more and more senior ecommerce roles.
You’ll own and support the setup of each launch and update. So for example, when it’s time for a monthly site launch, you’ll manage the upload of data, optimize the folder structure and do such maintenance as removing out-of-season styles and sold-out items. You’ll be using Magento for updates, processes and documentation. There’ll be cross-selling initiatives in which you partner with the content and merchandising teams to manage the initiatives’ set-up on the site. There’ll be special product detail pages and a look-book, both of whose set-ups you’ll own and maintain. When there are sales, you’ll set up and maintain the merchandise’s display pages, paying close attention to inventory changes. In fact, in a more general way, you’ll constantly be keeping an eye on the site to call out shifts and recommendations based on what you see.
You’ll run site analytics on a weekly basis and report on which shops are performing best on desktop and mobile, as well as providing general insights toward meeting sales goals. You’ll watch search results and make suggestions about redirecting them. When there are merchandise-related site issues, you’ll troubleshoot, and sometimes you’ll even be called on to serve as the site maintenance champ. Among the groups with which you’ll frequently collaborate are QA, content, buying, marketing and copy, as your duties take you into such areas as pre-orders, email strategy/timing, and site navigation.
