Buyer

We here at Fun.com just keep getting more and more items.  In fact, we’re expanding so much that we need another person to help keep our warehouse stocked with new 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 costumes all day long…It seems like a dream, right?

That’s because it is. Being a Buyer for Fun.com involves a lot of analysis and navigating through the Great Excel Forest of Data to make decisions.  There is a lot of drilling deep, deep down into deep, dark, depths of data.  Down to a single product at a single size, where we look at sell-through percentage, potential restock issues, tie-ins to trends, whether new products may compete with our current selection and tons more variables.

Then our Buyers do it again and again and again and again and again…

What we’re looking for are people who love crunching numbers and data analysis, along with design elements and pop culture.  Those 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 with a steep learning curve; 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 we need about 100 more varieties of Star Wars shirts – then you might be exactly who we are looking for.  Please visit our website at http://www.fun.com/jobs.aspx to apply.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities
  • Make informed decisions regarding pricing, vendors and product assortment selection
  • Adjust retail prices to maximize profit and achieve target year to date inventory levels
  • Research competition and compile reports allowing team decisions to be made on selection, pricing, and quantities
  • 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 track status through full receipt or closing date
  • Assign secondary and tertiary vendors to high volume product to ensure in stock status at all times
  • Summarize product category trends including fashion and media (new styles in mainstream fashion, upcoming movies or video games, etc.)
  • Make recommendations for new items to improve selection based on price points, competing products, size ranges, current trends and style
  • 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 informed decisions quickly, based on collected data
  • 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, but can still function well in a team environment
  • Loves to work with large (massive!) sets of data
  • Did we mention Excel yet?
  • Effective at communicating new ideas
  • Desire for continuous change and innovation
  • Willingness to travel to trade shows and visit vendors periodically throughout the year
Preferred Skills
  • B.A. or B.S. in Finance, Accounting, Chemistry, Mathematics, or really any other analytical discipline
