Barnes & Noble's eCommerce group is looking for people with vision and energy to help us in our quest to change the future of reading. We are the world's largest bookseller and one of the world's fastest growing digital media and consumer technology companies with annual revenues near $7 billion.
Our businesses include the nation's highest rated and most heavily trafficked specialty retail stores, digital content and hardware sales through our exploding NOOK(tm) brand, college bookstores, and online retailing through BN.com.
We are investing in all of our business initiatives, so the opportunities to make an impact have never been greater.
The senior allocation analyst is a critical member of the planning team. Working at the intersection of merchant, store, and supply chain operations, the senior allocation analyst is responsible for maintain appropriate inventory levels in stores (including bn.com) to support sales, promotions, visual merchandising, and local trends. Although the senior allocation analyst works with products, the focus is on the science of distribution, replenishment, capacity, and store clustering. The senior allocation analyst takes the product the merchants have invested in and creates as well as maintains the quantitative relationship between those products and our stores.
In addition to the above core allocation functions, the senior allocation analyst is responsible for developing replenishment algorithms and business logic to support multiple product verticals. She or he will be able to help train and develop allocation analysts; in this role, the senior allocation analyst should be well-versed in allocation best practices and comfortable with dealing with a wide range of products, such as books, gifts, toys, and games.
