Wayfair is reinventing the way that people shop for their homes, we have over two million people shopping across our 10+ million products daily. Both customer satisfaction and supplier satisfaction are critical to our business and core Wayfair values. Our extremely fast growth (~40% YoY) from an already large base of business demands high functioning, entrepreneurial teams.


The global Supply Chain Integration (SCI) team sits at the core of Wayfairs business. SCI facilitates the exchange of information with over 10000 suppliers through millions of individual daily data feeds. We aspire to build real-time, automated, and accurate data feeds across all suppliers to support mission critical business processes such as inventory, purchase orders, order tracking and invoicing. The sophistication of our suppliers span a wide spectrum, complicating the SCI mission. As Wayfair grows, we need to be ahead of the curve in defining, building and implementing future-proof integrations with our suppliers.


The integration management function within SCI works with our vast network of suppliers to design, deploy, and manage all integrations. In addition, this team is responsible for driving the adoption of strategic Wayfair initiatives through our supplier base. As we grow, we need to be ahead of the curve in identifying opportunities, designing solutions, and implementing change with our suppliers and internally.
