Wayfair believes everyone should live in a home they love. Through technology and innovation, we make it possible for shoppers to quickly and easily find exactly what they want from a selection of more than 14 million items across home furnishings, dcor, home improvement, housewares and more.

The International Supply Chain (ISC) team is responsible for the planning, movement, and tracking of goods from foreign factories to domestic warehouses. ISCs job starts once a supplier is ready to place an order from one of their factories and it doesnt end until those goods are delivered to a fulfillment center. Through deep integrations into the supply chain, automation, and exception handling we are able to provide world-class service and visibility to our suppliers. Our efforts allow them to focus on their core business while we worry about all the complexities involved in getting their goods imported. We aim to perfect and scale our offerings cost-effectively through technology.

You never know what will happen next!

- Provide technical oversight for a team of 20+ software engineers responsible for the platforms that plan, book, and track the movement of containers on ocean, land, and rail.
