Senior Product Manager- CastleGate Portal Fulfillment

Fulfillment and logistics technology is fundamental to creating an online purchase experience that delights our customers with rapid home delivery.  CastleGate was created to dramatically improve consumers’ shopping experience, and develop a unique competitive advantage for Wayfair. We do this by offering one and two-day delivery times, lower prices, and higher delivery quality of home products than has historically been possible. This is a distinct competitive advantage for Wayfair and one that will be the main driver to our future growth and success.  Wayfair is seeking an experienced product leader that is skilled at understanding complicated business processes and transforming them into clear, actionable tools to help people view and manage them.
