Category Manager

We are an online e-commerce of cosmetics, working with this industry for 10+ years, having a team of 50+ people worldwide. We do not produce our own products and we do not do marketing. Our business is that of Research, Programming, Data mining, Supply Chain Management, and understanding margins and returns. We thrive when our processes are followed to the letter and the work from everyone on the team is synchronized to produce lower costs, better purchasing decisions, and fast delivery of products.

Our company has grown 3 times in the last year, yes, we are 9X bigger than we were 2 years ago. We are different from most E-commerce companies, we do worldwide distribution of products mainly focused on marketplaces. We sell mostly on Amazon, Walmart, eBay and are looking to expand globally.

Our team has grown to 50+ people strong in 9 countries across the world from Spain, Colombia and Peru to US, Turkey and Russia all working remotely at flexible hours. And we do really strive for expanding our geography. Our strength is in data analysis to find the right opportunities, and then efficient operation & logistics capabilities to sell products internationally. However, our main strength is our people, without them nothing is possible. We truly believe in the shared cultural values and in the strength of the humane approach, that’s why we never tolerate any sorts of discrimination and are happy to welcome to our team people with different backgrounds. We share the values of peace, collaboration and mutual respect.

With growth comes complexity, and we are looking for energetic and committed specialists that can help us increase operational efficiency in order to accommodate more workflow within the operation demand.

Our core values are Efficiency, Initiative, Teamwork, Life-Long Learning, and Best-Life Architect. We run a positive culture with a lot of advanced business concepts, working in a very high-efficiency environment. We are direct and clear but not rude or aggressive. Demanding but don’t work overtime or on weekends and holidays.
