BuyerPurchasing

We here at Fun.com just keep buying more and more items.  In fact, we’re expanding so much that we need another person to help keep our warehouse stocked with product!  Being a Buyer seems like it would be a great job, doesn’t it?  Spending your day researching the newest trends, looking at various esoteric pieces of pop culture and finding new product all day long…It seems like a dream, right?

That’s because it is.

Being a Buyer for the Fun.com brand involves a lot of two things: analysis & research. Our Buyer's analyze what's happened and predict based on research so they can order, (or) price, and repeat. Again and again and again and again and again…

Still interested in a job that, at times, can be monotonous?! Good! Did we mention everything we sell is likely based on your favorite book, movie, tv show, animal or holiday? No? Well, it's true! (and that's the best part)

We’re looking for someone who either a) loves stuff (literally, stuff, like...things) or b) loves money more than stuff or things and understands how much money the stuff/things are worth so that we can buy the right stuff and sell the right things so we make thousands of customers happy and change the world!  These people might be rare, but unlike the beautiful and majestic Sasquatch, we know for a fact that such people exist. [Although we want to believe Harry and the Hendersons was a documentary.]  Did we mention how much you’d better love Excel?  Because you better.

If you’re the kind of person who: loves an intellectual challenge; doesn’t abide by a “we’ve always done it this way, so let’s keeping do it the same way” approach; looks at the price of something at 17 different websites before making a purchase; knows how to make a persuasive pitch, backed up by hard data and evidence; and truly understands exactly why Harry Potter is such a strong IP – then you might be exactly who we are looking for.  

Essential Duties and Responsibilities
  • Make informed decisions regarding product pricing, product selection and order quantity
  • Research competition and new-to-market product to help grow the Fun.com brand
  • Analyze sales data and determine reorder quantities based on year to date percentages
  • Input and update item information in electronic databases
  • Create purchase orders and work with Product Specialist(s) to secure product
  • Utilize trend and demand analysis to drive product-based decision-making
  • Other duties as assigned
Requirements and Skill Sets
  • High school diploma or equivalent
  • Experience with Microsoft Excel and the rest of the Microsoft Office Suite. But mostly Excel
  • Ability to make data-driven decisions quickly
  • Detailed and organized. To a fault. As in your record collection (people still have those, right?) is categorized by genre, then subgenre, alphabetized, placed in chronological order of release and then cross-referenced by band members and their other projects
  • Preference for working independently with a collective goal
  • Loves to work with large (massive!) sets of data
  • Effective at communicating new ideas
  • Professional experience in Sales, Buying, Purchasing, Retail or Consumer Products-related field
  • Willingness to travel to trade shows and visit vendors periodically throughout the year
Preferred Skills
  • B.A. or B.S. in Business, Economics, Finance, Accounting, Chemistry, Mathematics, or any other discipline requiring analytics
  • Inventory or retail management experience
  • Ridiculous amounts of pop-cultural knowledge
  • Knowledge of Consumer Products in the Toy, Game, Gift, Collectibles, or Apparel categories
