Building a better shopping experience.


The Senior Manager, Retail Strategy, Planning & Business Development is responsible for: 1) Developing new divison-wide strategies, 2) creating and assessing structured business cases, and 3) managing and initiating business development opportunities. Your ultimate goal is to help shape the broader Retail Division’s direction and execute cross-category strategic initiatives and partnerships in order to optimize business performance and foster a health marketplace ecosystem.

Challenges you’ll be tackling:

  • Handle multiple, time-sensitive strategic projects and competing priorities simultaneously, to work independently, and to drive projects to completion with minimal guidance and with very high attention to detail
  • Identify cross-category business development opportunities and manage outreach / engagement to form strategic partnerships
  • Form long-term strategic business relationships and have comfort engaging with senior executives

 

 

Responsibilities:

  • Identify business improvement opportunities, develop business cases, and lead high-visibility division-wide strategic initiatives
  • Develop analytical frameworks / models and conduct benchmarking research to support recommendations
  • Work cross-functionally with senior internal stakeholders across Categories, Product, Pricing, Marketing, Corporate Development, and the Executive Team to ensure buy-in for recommendations
  • Provide day-to-day project management and internal Retail Strategy & Business operational support (e.g. implementation of strategic projects, business-to-business marketing/branding/communications) as necessary
  • Coach / guide team members and leverage support resources to deliver on project goals

 

How you’ll know it’s right:

  • If playing in a jungle gym sounds more fun than climbing a ladder…
  • If you can drive results and solve problems in fun and creative ways…
  • If you understand that without risk there is no reward…

 

We think you’d look great in purple.
