Working for Trunk Club

When you join Trunk Club, you join the Nordstrom family. Our fast-paced and entrepreneurial environment is paired with the strong history and experience of a retail legacy. We have access to some of the greatest minds in retail and technology and are constantly creating innovative strategies to develop the ultimate apparel solutions. We welcome your adaptability, your curiosity, and your passion to contribute to our unparalleled shopping experience!

Who We Are

The Merchandising team is responsible for building a suite or reporting and monitoring tools to ensure we’re giving the best experience in retail. Most of our work is cross-functional, executing new programs that affect every part of the business. Our team is driven by analytics, and curious about all aspects of our business related to Merchandising. We operate outside of traditional retail metrics, which is the core of what we build here at Trunk Club. If you’re an analytical person who loves product, performance and tools, you’re the perfect fit.

What You'll Do

As a Sr. Merchandising Analyst, you will be ultimately responsible for providing the data our product planning teams use to inform seasonal and real-time product buying and inventory management decisions. This will range from translating demand forecasts into detailed inventory requirements across both clubhouses and trunks, to building real-time dashboards to monitor inventory availability, to highlighting product performance issues via stylist and customer feedback. You will work with stakeholders in Product Planning, Site Merchandising, Marketing, and Finance to ensure we have the right data to increase relevant inventory availability while improving overall inventory efficiency. This will involve pulling in signals from different sources - stylist feedback, customer feedback, online shopping sessions, etc. - into a concise and actionable framework for making inventory decisions. If successful, you will help ensure we have the right inventory available for every member in every experience.

  • Advocate for changes to our customer experience, operations, or technology to improve the number or accuracy of our data sources, such as improved clubhouse or at-home appointment reporting or visibility into merchandising receipts or fulfillment center availability
  • Collaborate with our data science team to understand how predictive analytics can support our goals within merchandising analytics

What your Background May Look Like

  • Strong business acumen with the ability to work independently and effectively problem solve
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills with the ability to manage multiple projects with firm deadlines in a rapidly changing environment

How we work
