Web Merchandising Specialist
National retailer Showcase continues to grow its website to become the "Home of the Hottest Trends" online. Unlike many traditional retailers, Showcase strives to be first to market with every trend it identifies, from branded to private label. The Web Merchandising Specialist is responsible for bringing these products to life online, through creative visual and written merchandising, ahead of their distribution to Showcase's 117 trend stores from coast to coast.
This is not a traditional online merchandising role, where vendors provide content and images and the merchandiser transcribes them to a website. Showcase moves quickly to execute each new trend, and as such, assets for most new items must be developed internally. Compelling photos must be located online or requested from our design team. Copy must be developed internally, after researching the product online or through interaction with a sample. With each new trend, the merchandiser must understand why the trend is gaining popularity, and adjust copy and content to align with the trend. As such, the role requires hands on learning with the product, as well as strong research and creative skills, alongside the technical aptitude to bring these assets to life on our Shopify website.
This role offers the chance to help lead a cutting-edge forward-thinking marketer/retailer, a competitive salary, performance incentives, and generous benefits, along with an exciting career path as the division grows.
