More information about this job

Overview

Turn5 is one of the largest and fastest growing e-commerce retailers in the Greater Philadelphia area. Best known for our award-winning e-commerce platforms, AmericanMuscle.com, ExtremeTerrain.com and AmericanTrucks.com, we’ve been engaging car enthusiasts with exceptional products, services, and experiences since 2004.

 

Our purpose, however, extends beyond selling car parts. We have a commitment to curating a diverse assortment mix that not only contains items that our customers want and need, but also unique, specialty products that inspire even the most experienced owner to think bigger.

 

To continue our growth path, we need a Merchandise Specialist who revels in the automotive world to help manage and build out new product lines on our e-commerce platforms. You will have the opportunity to work alongside the Senior Merchandise Manager on our Extreme Terrain business by supporting and prioritizing products through research and analysis based on business, revenue and profit margins. 

 

You will be challenged to understand pricing, vendor contracts and profit margins across the product lines. One minute you might be creating reports that help predict our next top selling product, the next minute analyzing data on supplier performance and the next minute forging new vendor relationships. Regardless of the task, it’s critical you have strong drive to find the anomaly in data sets, the curiosity to try new iterations and a desire to look for the best way to improve our data across the organization.

Responsibilities

Year 1 is going to be about:

 

  • Researching, updating and owning the creation of reports, coordinating product selections for marketing
  • Coordinating and resolving issues with warehouse, receiving, and accounting
  • Researching and Analyze Competitor pricing
  • Updating Pricing and product information

Qualifications

We can’t skip over some of the specific skills and experience we know are a “must” to be successful.  So, we need you to have:

 

  • Automotive product knowledge and a never-ending passion for the aftermarket industry
  • Strong data entry and project management background
  • Strong analytical skills: including being able to analyze large data sets to draw conclusions and develop recommendations
  • Proficiency in MS Excel
