Category Management
We currently operate in Germany and the UK and aim to offer an unparalleled selection of great value products for the home, paired with excellent customer experience. Each Category Management team is responsible for a specific vertical (e.g., lighting, décor, bedding, kitchen), knowing the respective market / industry, and maintaining relationships with suppliers. By working with key suppliers on a daily basis, the team’s ultimate objective is to grow the category by expanding the selection on our website, aligning promotions and operations, merchandising, and marketing activities with the respective teams, and ensuring price competitiveness throughout the catalog. Cross-functional collaboration is key in this role, since the category management teams are in daily contact with internal teams to advance the aforementioned business drivers.

Our Marketing team fuels growth by introducing new customers to Wayfair and driving engagement from our loyal customer base. We drive profitable top line revenue growth by making investments that will drive the greatest return for the business and leveraging our understanding of the customer to drive the overall business strategy. We work cross-functionally with Engineering and Product Management teams to build our own ad tech platforms and partner closely with innovative companies in the tech space such as Google and Facebook to test and explore new opportunities. As an intern, you’ll be assigned to a specific channel (e.g. Search, Display, Email, Social Media etc.) helping drive ad tech development, and growing the business.

The merchandising department is responsible for the creation and maintenance of our product catalogs. We add tens of thousands of new products each month, both for limited-time events and for ongoing product selection. We also continually improve the catalog – fixing issues and increasing the content to improve customer experience in a joint effort with our suppliers. Our goal is to provide inspirational and engaging content to drive customer engagement and increase conversion. We also understand where the customer is shopping on site – where they are most / least engaged through the funnel, and we create customized landing pages based on an analytical approach, supported by new merchandising tools.
