They also do fancier types of things like managing assigned product categories and executing Moosejaw's merchandising vision of both the online and brick-and-mortar businesses. Totally fancy.

Visual Merchandising Manager

We're looking for a talented retail visual merchandiser to add to our team in Madison Heights, Michigan. The Visual Merchandising Manager will be responsible for leadership of store visual presentation, floorset planning and execution, fixture development and procurement, communication of the visual strategy, standards and calendar, space planning, and partnership with marketing and merchandising leadership for all store signage. I'd normally consider this paragraph two but I'm not positive that's accurate considering its basically one really long sentence with lots of commas.

This person should be resourceful and highly creative, have a strong understanding of current trends and innovative visual approaches, as well as the ability to analyze business results and translate them into strong visual presentations. I wish there were another word for visual. Like optical. But not as tied to the word illusion.

Work it. As in things you'd be doing in this role:

  • Delivering an industry-leading in-store Moosejaw brand experience
  • Ensuring Moosejaw brand visual presentation is optimized seasonally
  • Optimizing the presentation of our assortments and executing the buyers' vision of color, style and content for the season
  • Leading communication and execution of the seasonal floorset calendar, priorities, and space/fixture planning by location across Moosejaw
  • Leading the creation and communication of visual standards and best practices weekly, monthly and seasonally and consistently looking for opportunities to improve these standards
  • Developing cross-merchandising statements in store to showcase the breadth of product and brand, and the synergy within assortments
  • Showcasing the newness for the seasons' buys, as well as highlighting the Moosejaw brand and other leading brands
  • Sharing ownership of space planning, product placement and adjacencies with senior management. I had to share ownership of my dog once. It sucked. I'm sure this will go way better.
  • Optimizing the presentation by market. Emphasizing the categories and product mix that best addresses the wants and needs of the customer in that specific location.
  • Ensuring that visually each store is positioned to deliver or exceed its sales plan
  • Communicating strategy to the store management team as a partner, and collaborating with the group to communicate important needs back to the buying and marketing teams
  • Managing the visual merchandising budget to meet or outperform expectations
  • Mentoring store employees to achieve continuous improvement in our visual presentation and standards
  • Soliciting input from the store and merchant teams to improve our overall visual strategy and execution
  • Partnering with senior management to address any and all fixture needs, including development and procurement by whatever means necessary. But it's always a plus if you're on the right side of the law on this one.
  • Partnering directly with marketing to ensure store signage initiatives are well executed and impactful

Bring it. As in must have's. And kind of must have's:

  • A minimum of 3 years of work experience as a store merchant, visual manager, buyer or product developer in a retail environment is required
  • Knowledge of outdoor products, brands and industry is preferred
  • Really great organizational skills and attention to detail. If you like to color code your closet, you prob have OCD. But in this case, that's an awesome thing.
  • Must have strong interpersonal skills, be a collaborator, and possess the ability to coach and teach in a positive manner. If people like working with you, you've probably got this down. If not, so sad.
  • Must be a natural-born leader, which is way better than a natural-born killer. I made that whole natural-born thing up. I thought it lent itself well to my Woody Harrelson obsession.
  • Must be extremely self-motivated and able to exhibit out-of-the-box thinking to formulate new and creative ways of doing things, challenge assumptions, be comfortable with ambiguity, and have a future-oriented focus
  • Must have strong project management skills with the ability to foster a sense of urgency, be aggressive in pushing for deadlines and communicating issues, identify and overcome obstacles, as well as proactive in providing status updates on projects
  • Must exhibit a high degree of flexibility, maintain a solution-driven focus in challenging situations, adapt quickly to changing business requirements and be able to thrive amidst chaos
  • Must have a strong affinity for the Moosejaw brand, Love the Madness and embrace the Moosejaw culture. You knew this one was coming.

Love it. As in Love the Madness:

  • Ping pong, a hammock lounge, dart shooting, a beer fridge and decent music. The list could go on, but I like to be all mysterious and stuff.
  • Cubicle-free work environment. However, you are encouraged to build a fort around you using couch cushions, pillows and blankets from your mom's house.
  • Coworkers who will laugh at your jokes. Even if they're just being polite.
  • Amazing discounts on outdoor apparel, gear and Moosejaw products
  • Great PTO, 401(k) plan and benefits package. Sorry I had to write that even though it's boring.

How to Apply:
Email your resume and salary requirement to jobs@moosejaw.com. Please write VMM in the subject line of your email so we know what you're applying for. I bet you wish I came up with a better subject line. Like optical illusion. But I didn't.

 

Moosejaw Models Wanted

We're looking for a few female models, age 18-25, to pose gracefully in the coolest products we carry. Models will be used for in-house photo shoots at our headquarters located in Madison Heights, Michigan. This will be great exposure (and I don't mean indecent by any means) for up-and-coming models as they'll appear in our print, catalog and online material.

  • Modeling experience is preferred.
  • Must be 18 years of age or older. No ifs, ands or buts.
  • Michigan applicants only. Although we love the rest of the country, we're quite partial to Michigan. Oh yeah, and Moosejaw will not be paying for expenses to travel to our headquarters. So it'd probably save you a lot of money in gas if you live in state.

How to Apply:
Email your resume or work history, along with no more than 3 pictures, to models@moosejaw.com. We're very serious about the 3-picture limit, so if you send 4 we'll think you're not great about following directions. Sorry to be so mean.
