Senior Product Manager, Global Transportation
We’re entrepreneurial, value oriented decision makers who drive the development of the world-class software products that power Wayfair’s transformation of retail for home. We create the web and app experiences that make Wayfair a delightful place to shop, establish new and innovative services for customers, and build the backbone of Wayfair’s pricing, merchandising, supply chain, and enterprise operations. Whether on desktop, mobile web, or app, or any of our proprietary internal platforms, we leverage data, user-centric design, machine learning, and Agile to exceed customer expectations and achieve operational excellence, fueling company growth. Our work requires us to move fast and collaborate with some of the best engineers, creatives, data scientists, operators, and analysts to discover, build, and scale world-class software products.
Wayfair's CastleGate Logistics division was designed with the supplier in mind: creating an end-to-end, world class digital freight forwarding solution that leverages our scale, expertise, and advanced tech capabilities to integrate seamlessly into our CastleGate Fulfillment & WDN networks. We are able to deliver Wayfair sellers a fully integrated alternative to traditional logistics by providing visibility from factory order to customer delivery, predictive cost management based on home goods consumer buying patterns, & much more.
