  • You will proactively manage inventory and following up with vendors.

  • You will support the Shop and Marketing teams on exciting projects like holiday pop-ups and shopping events.

  • You will manage SKU setup in our admin & quality assurance process to ensure all details are completed and accurate before SKU goes live -- down to the last cent. This includes coordinating with our Editorial, Customer Care, and Creative teams daily.


  • Competitive salary & healthcare package
