Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of building strong communities by connecting people to a vibrant, global marketplace for local services, experiences and goods. In the process, we’re positively impacting the lives of millions of customers and merchants globally. Our culture inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success. If you want to take more ownership of your career, then you're ready to be part of Groupon.

We're a "best of both worlds" kind of company. We're big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a meaningful impact. Does that sound like an exceptional way to grow your career?

The Merchandising Director is a new role within Groupon International and is a crucial role to strengthen our merchandising capabilities in order to drive consumer engagement to achieve our mission of building the daily habit.

An accomplished retail veteran with a real passion for ecommerce, you will be responsible for driving improvements across Local, Shopping and Getaways and be directly responsible for merchandising planning and execution across EMEA.

Reporting to the Chief Revenue Officer of International, you will work hand in hand with the INTL business leaders and merchandising leads in our major markets.

You'll Spend Time On The Following:

You will identify, recommend and build a merchandising calendar aligned with consumer demand and seasonality, across all lines of business.

You will partner with Groupon's supply teams to track and help provide the supply required to make the Groupon merchandising calendar a success and an ambitious destination, with the aim of targeting customer with the right products at the right time

You will identify new growth opportunities at a vertical to subcategory level and partner with supply teams on growth plans

You will design and develop a consumer demand model based on internal and external signals and educate the supply teams to stay relevant and current

You will provide guidance and insights to steer the commercial teams towards optimised deal structure and inventory mix (at the right margin) to achieve Groupon’s financial goals

You will execute trade off decisions with the supply teams to ensure successful delivery of the defined financial and customer goals

You will review, on a weekly basis, the performance of inventory / markets and sign off promotional initiatives; report out on performance of promotional initiatives

You will develop and lead the critical path for integrated campaigns to ensure all areas of the business are aware of requirements to launch these campaigns

Success Metrics for this Role:

Financial performance of Groupon in terms of margin%, billing and profit for the international business

Forecast accuracy, inventory turns and sell through

Success of integrated merchandising campaigns measured in average order value and conversion via gathering customers intent and channeling through to supply teams

We're Excited About You If You Have:

Experience in leading and developing teams with a confident and dynamic approach

Reactively steering price benchmarking and improving inventory forecast accuracy

Comfortable discussing key marketing and sales metrics, and able to showcase multiple campaigns that have been designed and executed

Experience developing relationships and leading teams, both directly and remotely

EMEA-wide responsibility - though not a requirement, this is ideal.

Comfortable turning data into insights; strong analytic experience - commercial acumen to quickly develop hypothesis

Have the maturity and experience to navigate different stakeholders in a highly matrixed organization

Have 8+ years of experience in a combination of the following roles - merchandising, marketing, supply, ecommerce and/or strategy

Be highly organised with a dedication to hitting deadlines no matter what

Passionate about mentoring and enabling teams to learn from your experience

Enjoy operating in a "startup environment" and wants to help craft the direction of Groupon’s EMEA merchandising organisation
