Senior Product Manager, Supplier Engagement

We are platform builders who own the infrastructure that powers Wayfair's vast product catalog. We own the core merchandising data infrastructure itself, the tools that optimize and transform data within it, and a growing array of cutting-edge services that support critical operations throughout the company (such as personalized site experiences, advanced logistics, highly configurable and made-to-order products, etc.) Our mission is to create stable, scalable, and flexible infrastructure that allows Wayfair to optimally merchandise every product our customers see. If you are interested in solving high-impact operational and technical challenges at the core of a highly-scaled e-commerce business, this is the place to be

What You'll Do:

Our Catalog sits at the heart of Wayfair's e-commerce operations; the way foundational product data is stored, maintained, and accessed touches nearly every area of the business, and either hinders or enables it

  • As a Senior Product Manager for Supplier Engagement , you will be responsible for defining the vision for how major areas of Wayfair's catalog will evolve to optimally support the needs of a rapidly growing e-commerce platform with a target rich environment of business and operational challenges
  • You will have the opportunity to build a product from scratch that enables our suppliers to increase their profits through changes in their images, furniture descriptions, tags, etc. This product leader will not only be working closely with suppliers, but also making changes that will be beneficial for our customers as well.
  • You will lead problem scoping and discovery across multiple functional areas, drive requirements synthesis, and facilitate prioritization to determine how Wayfair should enhance this sector of our Catalog to optimize speed-to-value
  • You will act with a high degree of autonomy and ownership, creating strong relationships with senior cross-functional leaders (both technical and non-technical), establishing a shared vision for success, and delivering results that create meaningful business impact

What we are looking for

  • 4-8+ years of professional experience, with at least 3 years in product management
  • Past experience playing a lead role in cross-functional initiatives by establishing strong partnerships with peers and senior leaders, effectively setting expectations, managing conflict, and creating buy-in for recommendations
  • Proven ability to take highly complex or ambiguous business problems, successfully lead strategic vision setting, and identify and prioritize near-term actions
    comfort using SQL or other relational database query language ( nice to have)
  • Strong baseline technical knowledge or technical orientation; very comfortable getting into the details, and learning and implementing new technologies
