Category Manager 80 - 100%

Launched in 1999 and now counting more than 3 million registered users, ricardo.ch is de facto the Swiss online marketplace. Every year, 5 million items are traded on our platform. To grow that number even further, we're looking to expand our team with a smart, talented and dedicated

Category Manager

Are you passionate about true values and a competitive selection? Do you thrive on data driven challenges? Do you see the potential for pre-owned, unique, refurbished and 2nd season objects to find a new home and make both sellers and buyers strike great deals? Are you willing and able to deal with the fast pace of change and development that makes the e-commerce industry demanding but incredibly fulfilling at the same time? If you can answer all these questions with a resounding yes, then read on - the person we’re looking for might be you.

What you’ll do

In a nutshell, you will be responsible for analyzing categories and crafting meaningful and promising development strategies (based on a mix of traditional and innovative approaches to supply and demand, competition analysis etc.). By doing so, you will both help making our users happy and maximizing our revenue. You will also go hands-on on both seller and inventory management by acquiring new sellers and accessing new business segments that optimize your category and help our business strategy be crowned with success. Due to your experience and charismatic nature you will take over a leading position next to the Head of Category Management and potentially build up your own team. Beyond that, you will collaborate closely with other teams and functions within ricardo.ch. 

Who you are

You have profound market knowledge, a very analytical mindset and a deep understanding of all things digital and/or retail. You are willing to take over responsibility for your category and to be in touch with the biggest sellers on our marketplace to develop strategic and mutually beneficial relationships. You thrive on the challenge of analyzing past marketplace activity and turn it into the base for future successes, for which you apply your skills in forecasting, monitoring and reporting developments. And as a successful leader, you keep your team and the company updated on your achievements and understand that your success relies on your ability to work with and inspire your team.

What we value

We cherish enthusiasm, reliability, cleverness and a 'get-sh*t-done' attitude. You’ll also need a university degree (MBA is a plus) and excellent command of German and English; any other Swiss language is an advantage. And be prepared to learn snippets of Polish, Turkish, and even South Tyrolean (yes, that’s a thing) during and after work hours thanks to the 26 different nationalities represented in our company. 

Sounds too good to be true? Beware, this is no walk in the park. We do have our fair share of challenges: from rebuilding our tech platform to ensuring that ricardo.ch’s value proposition remains relevant for users who have plenty of alternatives nowadays. But if you are genuinely interested in developing ricardo.ch further, this is your chance! Hit the button below and apply: we look forward to reading from you.
