Sr. Retail Product Manager (Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

When you saw My Fair Lady you admired how that old guy drove interest in the guttersnipe until she was a viable long-term investment.

Worst part of the job: Thursdays. Unless you like accordions. Or screeching polecats.

Make sure you bring: a pen that reads "Property of Woot.com" on the side. Oh, you don't have one of those? Well- good. Guess you're NOT the person who stole our pen. We just had to be sure. You understand, don't you?

Intangible benefits: Only if you make friends with the steakholders. Then maybe they can hook you up with hot yeast rolls or something.

Potential hazards: Once you learn how to anticipate bottlenecks, you'll never be able to pass a cooler of beer without feeling nervous.

If Woot were a superhero team, you'd be: one of those supporting characters who help the hero figure out what the clues mean. Con? You'll never really get your own book. Pro? You'll almost never get in a fist-fight with the bad guy.

Worst part of the job: when you fill up on yeast rolls and then the steakholder brings your meat and you're like "Aaaa, I can't eat this now, why did I fill up on bread?"

Software Development Manager
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

You're one part Captain Kirk, one part Han Solo, a quarter Captain Sheridan and a bit… aw, who are we kidding? The truth is, you're going to be managing a team of developers. Developers who work at a fast pace in a dynamic environment, trying to think of and close every loophole before their stuff goes live. Of course they're going to nitpick at everything you say!

The right candidate will know how to keep this rag-tag band of (extremely talented) misfits working as a solid team. You'll be hands-on, working to build Woot's new e-commerce platform using Amazon services, and possibly have to take away their tiny helicopters if they act up. Consider this your chance to be an IRL Dungeon Master. Except you can't make the city watch appear the moment your PCs act up.

In this job, you'll learn: that, left to their own devices, developers are the most powerful agent of entropy the world has ever seen.

Intangible benefits: it'll be really easy to get people to come over when you want to have a beer and board game night.

Potential hazards: it'll be really hard to get people to leave your beer and board game night until there's a clear winner.

If Woot were a superhero team, you'd be: the well-respected leader of a different super-team from an alternate Earth now trying to fit in. Possibly you'd change your costume.

Worst part of the job: Finding a new costume. Like, do you wear a wig and fishnets? Or a strange helmet? Or something with a lot of pouches that'll only last until the next reboot?

Make sure you bring: something cool to put on your desk. The cooler it is, the more power you'll have. For example, a ten foot high Galactus statue will beat a two inch Boba Fett, every time.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Develop the long-term strategy for your programs and translate that into an achievable road map/action plan
  • Responsible for the overall systems development life cycle
  • Management and execution against project plans and delivery commitments

Senior Vendor Manager (Woot Services LLC, Seattle, WA)

Webster's defines "high-impact" as … um … okay, this is embarassing. Instead of a dictionary, we've only got this collection of romance novels. But they seem to equate "high-impact" with "a sexy, hunky single father with a farm-built body and a poet's heart" so that's what we're gonna go with. And that could be you, assuming you're ready to flex your analytical and negotiation muscles as part of a team that researches, analyzes, and structures deals to perform at the highest level possible.

Intangible benefits: A chance to show how your enjoyment of problem solving and proficiency using Excel and other tools to analyze large data sets still doesn't stand in the way of your whirlwind romance with a red-haired Scottish princess from 1321 who has time-traveled to the present day and must learn to open her heart.

And then nobody will be able to stop you.

If Woot were a superhero team, you'd be: in love with a surgeon named Ted who doesn't love you back (sob!)

Worst part of the job: Your role will be inherently cross functional, requiring individuals who are interested in leading collaboration and negotiation across the organization, in both the physical and virtual workspace. Or, in other words, you'll both fall in love across a crowded room but have to endure a series of misunderstandings until you finally accept you belong together. And then, it's just a negotiation over who pays the shipping!

It'll go better if: you have long, sweeping, honey-colored hair that captures the rays of the sunset the way your frequent, executive-level vendor contact full of strong presentation and strategic negotiating skills will capture that mysterious stranger's heart.

Make sure you bring: an innocent desire to truly learn to love again.

Responsibilities:

  • Building executive-level vendor partnerships with holdout vendors.
  • Engaging with vendors to pitch the Woot value proposition and gather insight and feedback into how Woot can be their overstock solution.

  • Documenting standard processes for identifying and crystallizing optimal deal structures.

Basic Qualifications:

  • 5+ years in product, project, business, and/or vendor management is required

Senior Vendor Manager, Kids.Woot

Woot Inc. seeks a Sr. Vendor Manager with a healthy obsession about the rapidly evolving daily deal and flash sale space.

Successful candidates also enjoy problem solving and are proficient using Excel and other tools to analyze large data sets and might get a magical shield as duties require.

In this job, you'll learn: to travel both the physical and virtual workspace, leading collaboration and negotiation across the organization on the flying horse that might technically be your second cousin depending how you count. After a certain level on the mythological tree, the lines tend to sorta blur, you know?

Intangible benefits: As part of a team that researches, analyzes and structures deals, you will have in your hands the power of a GOD assuming that the god we're talking about is the god of quantitative analysis, analyzing historical data and keeping up with industry trends. Possibly you could also pick up being the god of archery or broccoli on the side, as long as it doesn't interfere with your primary duties.

Potential hazards: Krakens. Just Krakens.

If Woot were a superhero team, you'd be: the jolly, slightly out of place deity always happy to use your nigh-omnipotence to help, but, coincidentally, often called away just when you'd be most useful in solving a problem.

Worst part of the job: while involved in frequent, executive-level vendor contact requiring strong presentation and strategic negotiating skills, you cannot consult the Oracle at Delphi without permission of Zeus, Jupiter, Wotan, Brekyirihunuade, Chukwu or Olorun. Possibly also Ngai.

Make sure you bring: some sort of symbol, so archeologists will know which lunch is yours.

Responsibilities:

  • Building executive-level vendor partnerships with holdout vendors.

Of course, in between the sonnets and the odes, you'll probably be asked to be responsible for development and maintenance of the business systems software used for backend order fulfillment, reporting, and various tools used to run the Woot business. But c'mon, we know that's just for show, right? What a tech company wants these days is a new way to say "I love you."

In this job, you'll learn: that moon/june/spoon is frowned upon by corporate.

Intangible benefits: none, save the touch of a silken hand against your sapphire cheek upon which the tears of love have grown hard and cold. And sometimes the people in your row will snap their fingers in approval.

If Woot were a superhero team, you'd be: so in tune with nature that you could command the very Earth itself! And you would use it to enrich the crime-fighting experience for your teammates.

Senior UX Designer (Woot Workshop, Seattle, WA)

UX! See that? It's a perfectly formed U and a perfectly shaped X. Pretty good, huh? Yeah, we're pretty proud of how well we designed that UX up there. But maybe, just maybe, you can do better. So if you think you can UX up to our level, well, give it a shot. But we've got to warn you. We've been typing "UX" for years now. We're prrrretty good at it.

That having been said, if you think you're the talented Senior UX Designer who can outshine an UX like this - UX! - then give us a jingle. You'll need to be comfortable with all manner of visual design projects, from a template-based icon to interactive web features to Heaven knows what else. Innovation and independence is valued highly, but we'll still expect you to listen to our dumb ideas and make them work. Applicants will be evaluated primarily on their online portfolios; failure to provide work samples (and your role in each) will pretty much guarantee that we won't call you. Coding or other multimedia production skills are a bonus. Also you need to be able to write "UX" without any typos. Think you can handle that?

If Woot were a superhero team, you'd be: a billionaire named Jack with radiation-enhanced jumping powers (who hopefully does some UX work on the side).

Worst part of the job: when the boss calls you in to ask why you misspelled "UX" for the third time. Seriously. Get yourself together.

Make sure you bring: a portfolio which demonstrates how you have an excellent eye for graphic design, including: color, layout, typography, and illustration, an in-depth understanding of web design principles and usability, and a solid grounding in the possibilities (and limitations) of current and emerging web technologies and trends. Just in case you hadn't caught on to how serious we are about that part.

Responsibilities:

  • Create a world-class customer experience and beautiful visuals that support and reinforce Woot's vision, brand, and business objectives

Buying Coordinator (Woot Services, LLC, Carrollton, TX)

The mysterious fortune teller looked into her crystal ball and whispered "Once, you were a mighty coordinator, responsible for the overall administration of the purchase order process!" You didn't believe her, of course, because there was no room for mystics in the far, far future. It was the year 4060, and you worked as a clerk in the Time Division. Past lives in the 21st Century? Nonsense! And yet, at night, you'd dream of being responsible for for generating all purchase orders and coordinating the flow of information between the buying team and vendors, as well as between the fulfillment centers, inventory control, and merchandising teams. At last it all became too much. One day, when you were alone, you slipped into the Mind Mover and hit the button. A short jolt, the sound of wind… and it was done. You were back in the past. Your first stop: a clothing store, because pants never time travel for some reason. Your second stop? This.

Does this sound familiar? Then maybe… your destiny awaits.

Vendor Manager, Home (Woot Services, LLC, Carrollton, TX)

Sublimation. A concept invented (so to speak) by the philosophers. It's the way a mature adult takes their destructive desires and turns them into something positive! Like, for example, if you were someone who wanted to spend money to buy things for the home, and then you got a job spending money to buy things for the home professionally! That's our way of saying: we want you.

If you've got experience reviewing product, analyzing data, knowing what customers want, identifying trends and coming to conclusions that turn out to be brilliantly on-the-money… well, what's got two thumbs and a Vendor Manager position? This guy! Or gal! Whatever gender ultimately ends up hiring you, that's the one we mean!

In this job, you'll learn: that its much more fun to purchase sofa beds with a multi-million dollar corporation's money that it is to buy sofa beds with your own.

If Woot were a superhero team, you'd be: the one who'd control people's minds and make them buy sofa beds.

Intangible benefits: Sometimes you'll get to dodge Nerf darts when walking past the developers, and that'll make you feel like you're in The Matrix

Worst part of the job: Breaking it to a potential sidekick that the name they like doesn't synergize with yours. Especially if they swore an oath on the graves of their loved ones. That's never an easy discussion.

Warehouse Associate (Woot Services, Carrollton, TX)

Light a lantern! Summon a turnkey! For you just might be the bright, motivated, hardworking individual we're looking to force into the iron mask of a warehouse fulfillment associate. The ideal candidate possesses a strong work ethic, attention to detail, the ability to meet deadlines, and a commitment to customer service as it relates to product fulfillment, and is willing to swear no connection with a group of musketeers who intend a bold attempt to subvert the rule of Louis XIV and place the exiled Philippe upon the throne.

The Fulfillment Associate position may be required to receive products using radio frequency scanners, relocate products using forklifts and pallet jacks and very very occasionally defend the honor of Charles II against Lord Cromwell.

Under no circumstances must they lift the Iron Mask upon the prisoner who sits alone in the furthest cell. However, Fulfillment Associates are expected to understand aspects of production, adhere to strict safety, quality, and production standards. Dependent on business needs, the position may require the Associate to be willing and able to work on powered equipment such as forklifts or scissor lifts. But you can nickname them "Athos" and "Porthos" if you wanna.

In this job, you'll learn: a grand appreciation for classical literature about the French Revolution!

Intangible benefits: the friendship you'll form with co-workers as you stand against the sinister Cardinal. Or maybe it's a mockingbird. Whatever, it's in the tree out back, just go look after you get hired.

Potential hazards: almost none, since the safety guys stopped our mid-morning saber duels. In retrospect those were actually a pretty dumb idea.

If Woot were a superhero team, you'd be: the one with a big fancy hat and cool boots!

Worst part of the job: when that guy who stole a loaf of bread comes in and starts singing and you're like WRONG AUTHOR, JERKFACE

Make sure you bring: an unshakable esprit de corps with your co-workers! One for all and all for one!

Work Environment:

A fork by itself is useful. A fork attached to an electrical wire isn't fun at all. As our Electronics Vendor Manager, you'll be expected to know things like that.

You'll also be expected to seek out deals and vendors for all sorts of electronical items. You might be buying surplus HAARP arrays from the CIA, or maybe procuring the best deal on Tesla Anti-Gravity Boots from MI6. Possibly you'll also do something with AM radios somewhere along the way.

Vendor Manager (Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

You're passionate. Proven. Stalwart. You do astronavigation equations in your head. You've got a talking Trans Am and a sidekick played by a comedian. Your voice has been described as "honey made of lightning" and you speak more languages than there are countries. And when you take off your motorcycle helmet, people gasp in amazement at how you glow. At least, that's how they'll portray you when they make a movie about Vendor Managers in Seattle. The truth? Hey, since when have movies cared about the truth?

But if you're willing to be a passionate customer and category advocate, if you've got proven analytical capabilities, if you can handle project management while multi-tasking across tight deadlines, and you're ready to take ownership of forecasting, monitoring, understanding and reporting on your category while driving strategic projects to achieve business objectives… well, you might just have what it takes. And don't worry, Hollywood will never know about that time you walked back to your desk with a little piece of toilet paper stuck to your shoes.

In this job, you'll learn: that being an effective negotiator, leader and communicator doesn't translate well on film. What about we make that "karate champion with a laser whip" instead?

Intangible benefits: You'll be working with very important partners and vendors, having conversations. In the movie, that'll be a wrestling match with undead Aztec warriors. See how it works? It's easy!

Potential hazards: You'll have to work with the writing team and they'll keep suggesting things like "karate champion with a laser whip" and "wrestling match with undead Aztec warriors" over and over again.

If Woot were a superhero team, you'd be: off in your own book, occasionally popping up in one of the big crossover events.

Worst part of the job: casting the person who will play you in the movie. Maybe Jennifer Lawrence? Or, if you're a guy, Jennifer Lawrence using a deep voice? Hey, she's really talented, she could totally pull it off.

Make sure you bring: a passion for retail, a high level of flexibility, a commitment to your work, and a sense of humor. And possibly Jennifer Lawrence's cell phone number, if you have it.

  • Managing product categories within Woot Tools & Garden or Accessories & Watches
