Senior Manager, Small Parcel

    • Boston, MA

The Strategic Operational Finance team develops financial and business strategies for Wayfair’s major supply chain and operations initiatives. The Senior Manager of Small Parcel will lead this increasingly critical and highly visible group. You are expected to be a top performer as both a “leader” and a “doer,” you will be the point person on all major Small Parcel projects that you will manage and execute against.


The ideal candidate is highly self-motivated and analytical with experience working with and analyzing FedEx and or UPS contracts. This person is adept at translating business issues into analyses, building the relevant models and communicating results and recommendations to diverse audiences (up to C-level on a regular basis). He/she has demonstrated success in leveraging data to drive decision-making. The ideal candidate can balance quantitative analysis and critical business thinking with effective communication of tangible results and actions. This candidate will be able to work at both a strategic level (understanding the business issues) and at a tactical level (pivoting between projects in real-time, digging into data to understand and report trends, and managing junior colleagues who may be assisting in analyses). This candidate also thrives in a fast-paced environment and can take on new responsibilities quickly.
