Work­ing field:

Func­tional Areas of Interest and poten­tial team place­ments include:

Cat­egory Man­age­ment
Although we cur­rently only oper­ate in Ger­many and UK, we aim to serve ulti­mately a pop­u­la­tion of 450 mil­lion and a land mass that is of the same scale as the United States. Our aim is to offer an unpar­alleled selec­tion of great value products for the home and excel­lent cus­tomer ser­vice. Each Cat­egory Man­age­ment team is respons­ible for prof­it­ably grow­ing its port­fo­lio by driv­ing stra­tegic ini­ti­at­ives and growth oppor­tun­it­ies with sup­pli­ers. The teams align with external sup­plier part­ners and cross-func­tional internal teams to advance key busi­ness drivers, such as selec­tion, pri­cing, oper­a­tional per­form­ance, mar­ket­ing pro­mo­tions, and mer­chand­ising.

Awar­ded best E-Retail mar­keter in 2016 by Inter­net Retailer, our Mar­ket­ing team fuels growth by intro­du­cing new cus­tom­ers to Way­fair and driv­ing engage­ment from our loyal cus­tomer base. We drive prof­it­able top line rev­enue growth by mak­ing invest­ments that will drive the greatest return for the busi­ness and lever­aging our under­stand­ing of the cus­tomer to drive the over­all busi­ness strategy. We work cross-func­tion­ally with Engin­eer­ing and Product Man­age­ment teams to build our own ad tech plat­forms and part­ner closely with innov­at­ive com­pan­ies in the tech space such as Google and Face­book to test and explore new oppor­tun­it­ies. As an intern, you’ll be assigned to a spe­cific chan­nel (e.g. Search, Dis­play, Email, Social Media etc.) help­ing drive ad tech devel­op­ment, and grow­ing the busi­ness.

The mer­chand­ising depart­ment is respons­ible for the cre­ation and main­ten­ance of our product cata­logs. We add tens of thou­sands of new products each month both for lim­ited-time events and for ongo­ing product selec­tion. We also con­tinu­ally improve the cata­log – fix­ing issues and increas­ing the con­tent to improve cus­tomer exper­i­ence. Our goal is to influ­ence cus­tomer beha­vior and there­fore con­tinue to improve the qual­ity on the mer­chand­ising “basics” to increase the con­ver­sion rate. We also under­stand where the cus­tomer is shop­ping on site – where they are most / least engaged through the fun­nel, we cre­ate cus­tom­ized, hand-cur­ated land­ing pages based on ana­lyt­ics sup­por­ted by new mer­chand­ising tools. Finally, we provide inspir­a­tional and buy­ing assist con­tent to drive engage­ment and pur­chas­ing.

Suc­cess relies on innov­at­ive prob­lem solv­ing, strong busi­ness acu­men, quant­it­at­ive skills, and col­lab­or­a­tion with external and internal part­ners.
