The Grommet Wholesale is looking for a driven and detail-oriented team member who will build and maintain all listings on our wholesale site and all partner retailer systems. You will be part of the Wholesale Team, known as the “start-up within the start-up”, but work closely with the Website Operations Team (known as SiteOps) to maintain website standards. As a small team, everyone wears different hats and we expect you to be flexible as we continue to rapidly grow and change. You should be comfortable living on the edge of uncertainty, think both inside and outside the box, own the responsibilities, and enjoy helping to build a team and a business unit from the ground up.

Responsibilities:

  • Build and maintain all listings on wholesale.thegrommet.com
  • Implement wholesale marketing promotions, sales, and site-wide campaign events
  • Write and edit product copy with an understanding of the impact of accurate product information on the customer shopping experience
  • Initiate and collaborate on independent projects to advance the business
  • Perform quality assurance on wholesale listings
  • Build custom and Key Account SKUs in retailer systems
  • Participate in trade shows across the U.S. and serve as a troubleshooting source
  • Assist in sample collection and organization
  • Photo editing and resizing

Desired Skills and Experience:

  • Bachelor’s Degree
  • High attention to detail and strong organizational skills
  • Exceptional time and project management skills
  • Ability to juggle a variety of projects with fast deadlines
  • Desire to learn new technologies quickly and navigate complex systems
  • Comfort with regular travel within the U.S. and working weekends. Depending on the time of year, travel may account for ~25% of the role and may include lifting and assembling pieces of a trade show booth
  • Familiarity with website publishing and/or photo editing skills are a plus

Perks:

  • Competitive Salary and Benefits
  • Culture of mentorship and learning – exposure to the start-up industry in Boston and an opportunity to learn through frequent information and expertise sharing, event-attendance, and presentations by our team members
  • Incredible space about a 5 minute walk from Davis Square
  • Yearly Bonus Incentive plan based on performance

About The Grommet:

The Grommet is a product launch platform. This means we find unique, undiscovered products and help them succeed. Our goal is to level the playing field so the best companies can win. Until The Grommet came along in 2008, that was simply not always the case. We have attracted a powerful community of Makers, Retailers and Consumers whose enthusiasm for suggesting, sharing, and buying Grommets ensures the survival and growth of the ground-breaking companies behind them. We are rooted in the philosophy of Citizen Commerce™ whereby regular people form the consumer experience by suggesting products that reflect their values and interests.

In the summer of 2014 we launched a new Wholesale Platform at the White House Maker Faire to connect these independent Makers with Main Street Retailers, supporting both and ensuring their success. Our end goal is that within five years 10% of all products flowing through U.S. retail will be originating from independent small-scale Makers, creating vibrant jobs and innovative products in every corner of our country.

Our team is composed of creative and driven individuals with unique vision who are building a disruptive product launch platform with no direct competitors. We have blue chip investors, including Rakuten, and are in high-growth mode.

We're seeking high-energy players who are eager to contribute to the growth of our company and to share in its success. These are high-potential positions on the Grommet's team with exposure and the opportunity to reach into all areas of this exciting company. Our team is growing, and these hires will have the opportunity to make a deep and immediate impact on our business.
