VP, Digital Strategy (Commerce).

Job Description.

VP, Digital Strategy (Commerce)

This role is for a world-class strategist to help shape the future of digital commerce. The commerce practice at Huge is rapidly expanding, and is one of our most important strategic initiatives - this role is an opportunity to get in at the ground floor as a foundational pillar of our business.

Reporting directly to our global head of commerce, you will focus on leading our most complex digital transformation projects, partnering globally with teams from New York to Singapore, London to Detroit. This is a highly visible role, with opportunities for public speaking, thought leadership, and partnering directly with client executives and with regional Huge leadership.

In addition to focusing on our most complex engagements, you will lead our “core commerce” focus area, with an emphasis on brand-owned or first-party experiences, including traditional eCommerce (.coms, apps) and physical retail. You will drive Huge’s perspective on what good looks like, and define, grow, and evolve our teams, product offerings, and partnerships.

You will be a self-starter and builder who thrives in constantly morphing environments, with a breadth and depth of transformation and consulting experience that gives you a strong foundation in modern multichannel commerce.

We are open to this role being remote based.

What you’ll be doing.

  • Leading and executing across the entire lifecycle of our business - from business and capability development, to pitching and client relationship building, through delivery of transformational work and organic growth of our existing accounts.
  • Defining the future of our “core commerce” business in collaboration with our global head of commerce, and personally representing that perspective internally at Huge, as well as to industry analysts, trade publications, general press, and current and future clients.
  • Identifying market trends and opportunities to expand Huge’s global commerce capabilities and team.
  • Developing relationships across the Huge global network, influencing teams, supporting existing account needs, and reinforcing strong ties between the commerce practice and regional teams.

What we’d like to see.

Strategists at Huge sit at the intersection of user needs, business goals, and organizational capabilities (people, process, and platforms/technology). They are orchestrators and leaders. They are thinkers and doers. They can define a vision, a strategy backed by a detailed roadmap to achieve it, and roll their sleeves up to lead teams in delivering against that strategy. To that end, we are looking for:

  • A proven subject matter expertise (5-7+ years) in the commerce space - including a broad understanding of digital product development (engineering, architecture, design, product management), merchandising, marketing, physical retail, supply chain. You understand what it takes to run a digital commerce business, from site merchandising to pricing and promotions, from content management to SEO, and are very deep in the digital product development space, from design and engineering to user research and site performance optimization.
  • Demonstrated ability (3-5+ years) leading digital transformation programs, from analyzing a client’s business, user and market trends; to assessing capability needs across people, process, platforms (technology), and partners; to developing and leading data-backed multi-year strategies to transform a business.
  • Familiarity with a broad range of commerce-related technologies across eCommerce, web content management (CMS, DXP), core merchandising, search, product information (PIM, PXM), payments, order management, point of sale, and marketing analytics.
  • Experience engaging with and presenting to SVP and C-Suite leaders, especially chief digital officers, chief strategy officers, heads of eCommerce, chief technology officers, and chief customer or experience officers.
  • Experience in multiple kinds of businesses (DTC, B2B, wholesale, physical retail, subscriptions) across various industries and scales.
  • A strong point of view on market and user trends in digital commerce.
  • Ability to work on a US time-zone and (periodically, and only when it is safe to do so) willingness to travel domestically and internationally.
  • A background in consulting or an MBA is a plus, but not required.

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
