E-commerce manager

Job Description

Always wanted to work in a company where you can do what you love while at the same time bring an entire international organization to the next level? If your passion is to ensure client satisfaction and high-quality service and product, and you think you have it in you to bring an international organization to the next level on Conversion, Online Sales, Webshop and web offerings? Then please consider applying and read through the job description below.

Currently, I am recruiting for one of my most prestigious clients, based in the Tilburg Region. They're one of the biggest Industrial tooling retail companies in the world and the biggest in Europe, existing for over sixty years and business enterprises with over 140 locations in 15 countries worldwide. In a market that is becoming more and more competitive and their aim for the number one spot worldwide, they have now decided to shift the focus even more to B2B through Electronic data interchange (EDI). This requires professionalization and improvement of their eCommerce strategies, urging them now to hire a new eCommerce manager who can lead a team of functional application specialists and webshop developers

About the company

The majority of multinational organizations have tried to maintain their start-up or family company atmosphere despite their growth, and failed. Not them. With more than 1,700 employees worldwide they provide their customers still with excellent service, not only because of their great staff, but also because of their mission statements. True partnership is the terminology they use, allowing them to be committed to placing themselves in the position of their customers to know and understand their goals, the challenges they face, and their needs. A credo that is vital in the industrial tooling segment and what has allowed them to get to where they are now.

Building on that true partnership, they have now started a trajectory building on professionalizing and improving their webshop and ecommerce strategies. After setting up an entire department just for that purpose, building their webshop via hybris, and building a team of experts around it, it is now time to go to the next level: being able to respond even better and faster to their client’s needs while maintaining their excellent level of service.

About the position

You will operate as a Functional Application Manager E-Commerce within the company’s central SAP Competence Center Applications (CCA), where you will be responsible for actively maintaining the contacts with the business to meet the company’s requirements on E-business driven integration of processes and partners and ensuring their effective deployment within their WebMethods integration platform.

You will partner with the eCommerce organization in the achievement of its digital strategies that support its growth initiatives. You will also hire and develop eCommerce Engineering staff.

Essential to being successful in this position, is to have the ambition to know your customers, earn their trust and become your customers’ “go-to” person. From a personality point of view, a winning attitude is the common denominator in the team. Playing to win, high standards, communicating openly & honestly, and listening to and learning from others are equally important.
