Minted is seeking an analytical, strategic thinker to lead merchandising for one of our biggest categories, holiday cards. This individual will be responsible for driving the highly seasonal holiday business, with a focus on top line growth. The ideal candidate intuitively understands the end-consumer, shops for this product, and loves great design, but is also extremely talented from an analytical and quantitative perspective and believes that the power of decisions must be turned over to the crowd. This person has superb business intuition, a passion for driving business results with data and analysis, strong collaboration and communication skills, and the ability to both think strategically and roll their sleeves up to get things done quickly and with limited resources. This person is energized by the peak Q4 holiday selling season; they thrive under pressure, and enjoy seeing the fruits of their labor pay off in a highly concentrated sales period.
Reporting to the VP & GM, Holiday, Baby & Kids and overseeing one merchandising associate, this is a collaborative, cross-functional category management role with significant interaction with the Business Operations, Marketing, Product Management and senior management teams. This is a great role for someone looking to build general management experience.
