Merchandiser - Sourcing/Buying

Loot Crate was founded in 2012 around a simple idea: put the awesomeness of Comic-Con in a box. Today, we ship some of the coolest geek, gaming, and pop-culture collectibles and accessories to a subscriber base in the hundreds of thousands (with no signs of slowing down) making us one of the top subscription box services in the world! We’ve assembled an amazing team of passionate, ambitious, impossibly nerdy people who cultivate our amazing fan community, provide support of the highest caliber, and generally just sit there radiating niceness. We’re always on the lookout for fun, hard-working new people to join our team and make Loot Crate even better.

THE ROLE:

The Merchandiser will be an expert in understanding the domestic and international market and the range of relevant products and vendors in their assigned categories. Their core talent will be to select the best mix of products to excite and engage our Looter audience. You will have the refined ability to thoroughly understand our Looter profile and connect their interests in pop culture and gaming with the most relevant and surprising merchandise.  

You will manage the vendor relationships including support in the setup and maintenance of all required supplier agreements and NDAs. You will work to facilitate the ultimate product purchase ensuring appropriate quantities, best terms, lowest possible landed cost and adequate delivery lead time crate pack out. Participation in sourcing new vendors and licensing partners is a key focus for this role.

The Merchandiser will source and produce products for our private label apparel items that are included across the multiple crate lines we offer. Daily tasks also include a full range of administrative and support: handling correspondence for development tracking, email and communication both internally and to external resources.
