Are you a detail-oriented communicator with the ability to work on multiple tasks at once? Are you an accurate and efficient self-starter? We’re looking for a motivated, efficient, and communicative individual that can manage our vendor relationships.
HedgeApple Inc. is a home decor eCommerce company that offers furniture and decor for all styles and budgets. We work with 100+ brands and offer over 250K items, but we are a small business with a dedicated team, where each employee has a direct impact on the success of the company.
The Vendor Relations Specialist acts as the liaison between our organization and hundreds of brands. This position will interact with our vendors to procure new products, promotions, updates, images, and more. The coordinator resolves product issues and works with the team to ensure success. This person promotes and maintains positive relationships and takes initiative to go the extra mile in their work. This person is an extremely flexible thinker because the expectations and tasks change often. The Vendor Relations Specialist can take on many jobs and wear many hats with ease. Some of the tasks include:
- Communicating with accounts about sales, product/pricing updates, marketing practice, and operations.
- Discussing and negotiating with current accounts about seasonal and holiday promotions.
- Collaborating with our manufacturers, data team, and marketing team to onboard new accounts.
- Travel to trade shows and markets across the country with our team. 2-3 times a year.
Our operations team uses various tools and programs. We're always open to new ideas and ways to improve our workflow, but here are some of the tools we use in account management right now:
- Task Management: Monday
- Google Workspace
Everyone is different and deserves a chance to show what they really know and enjoy. We prefer that you have some experience in account management and working with representatives from B2B manufacturers, but all degrees of experience are welcome to apply.
