Job ID: 403518_en-us
Salary Range: 0.0- 0.0
Job Category: E-Commerce
Employment type: Full Time

Position Description:

Position Purpose: 

Global Custom Commerce, Inc. has embarked on a new adventure. Although the company remains focused on dominating the entire blinds market, we have transformed our business model to take on selling complex, hard-to-buy- products in multiple categories as well as improving the Home Depot customer experience.   We have created a dedicated team focused on this effort known as the Interconnected Retail Team.

We are looking for individuals who are comfortable with change, working with ambiguous situations but also willing to become pioneers to help us create a path to success.  If selected to join the Interconnected Retail team, although you will have core responsibilities defined in this job description, you will also be asked to step outside of the box to help out in other areas as needed (similar to working in a start-up company mode).

The Interconnected Retail team is looking for a Product Management Manager who is ready to leap into unknown waters. The PM Manager will be responsible for attracting, retaining, and developing top talent focused on addressing customer needs as they work in a cross-functional environment to deliver quality products. This role will focus on ensuring their PM team has the skills required to work autonomously on complex projects as well as help do the discovery necessary for potential future projects. This individual will be comfortable staying in touch with the status of multiple projects while remaining flexible and responsive to frequent changes. Of course, similar to a start-up, the PM Manager is ready and able to take on all sorts of small side projects, all in order to move the team towards their goal.

Why work here?

Our entrepreneurial roots and maverick mentality, coupled with the resources and backing of the #1 home improvement retailer in the world, The Home Depot, is a unique opportunity for you to be a transformative retail disrupter. Plus, as the world’s largest online window covering company, and we’ve got a demonstrably awesome 20-year track record. From our hybrid work enviornment to our open-door ethos, our culture is rooted in improving, evolving, and having fun (we’re pretty serious about cake, cook-offs, ping pong, meaningful work and exciting projects). Most importantly, our team members are always inspired, engaged, and ready for growth.

That means you’ll have the resources and the runway to create truly magical, out-of-the-box work. Moreover, you will play an important role in leveraging our culture, people, systems, processes, and technology — ultimately to provide incredible customer experiences, while growing business for GCC and The Home Depot. This is your chance to be part of something big, in a small start-up environment.
