eCommerce Manager


From humble beginnings from their first store on Collins street, Horseland has evolved to become Australia’s Leading Retail Equestrian brand. Horseland and their premium brands offer a wide range of technical, sustainable and quality products. 

These guys have achieved quite a bit really, redefining the industry, transforming the way horses are protected for years to come and now we are looking for a commercially-minded ecommerce Manager to come in and take a customer-centric lead and own the ecommerce platform for an iconic Australian brand that boasts 50+ storewide and owns premium brands with both national and international reach.

This is an exciting opportunity, not only in joining a long-standing brand that is on a serious digital transformational journey, but it also provides you the opportunity to join an amazing team both in your leaders and those you will be leading.

You’ll have a natural entrepreneurial mindset, be used to working in a fast-paced environment and be comfortable with having full ownership and accountability of a high performing website. As an experienced Ecommerce Manager, you are confident in leading the growth strategy and advising on best practice.

So, what is this role you speak of Luke? [humour me, as I go split personality to answer your questions]
Thanks for asking, the way I see it, the eCommerce Manager is the central point of eCommerce operations and managing project delivery, contributing to scoping and solution analysis, and prioritizing requirements across the WeatherBeeta business. 

This role is kinda important, you will need to [and of course enjoy] work closely
with internal and external developers, your ecommerce team and other key internal stakeholders to ensure that new functionality + BAU improvements are delivered timely and in priority order.

Ok Luke, I get it – but why now, why are they looking for someone?
Great question… my simple one one word answer to that; growth…

  • The group is on a continual upward trend, with considerable online & offline growth
  • They need to bring in solid, experience to lead key projects identified to further build the Omni Channel experience
  • There are significant global opportunities also [so you’ll need to be slick at liaising and dealing with UK & USA ecommerce teams & projects]  

Right.. Sounds interetsting… Give me the bullet points, break this down for me, what will I actually be doing?
Well, you will…

  • Lead and manage a team that will deliver the local eCommerce strategy for our Australian market, which includes Horseland, WeatherBeeta and 3 rd party marketplaces.
  • Be working closely with the front end developer support the improvement of UX, website design, content, navigation, performance, and promotional campaigns to provide a seamless user journey
  • Provide guidance to Marketing, Creative and IT teams, creating an exceptional digital experience in the process to bring our campaigns to life
  • There is another 8 bullet points I can provide to you in a PD, but to be frank it’s the first bullet point we need you to be amazing at..

In terms of tech know-how these are the things we need you to be across…

  • Analytical and can process that information into business-oriented insights, utilising tools like Google Analytics
  • Strong understanding of e-commerce and customer data solutions
  • Experience with Magento 2 eCommerce platform
  • Knowledge and/or experience of Product Management System (PIMS)
  • Experience with search engine technology (Fred hopper)

So, this is where I take the mic back, it’s time for me to be asking you…  Are you keen to know more?

Awesome, well I’m hoping you are, and that you are keen to bring your strong ‘hands-on’ problem solving superpowers across to this rather horseome opportunity, please no horsing around – To be or not to be… That is the equestrian.  There is a lot more we can tell you about these guys (they’re pretty cool and we like them) as well as the role but now it’s over to you. 

Make sure you apply, but not just “I’ll flick my CV through kind-of-apply” we want to know your story, the one that’s behind your CV. Give us some words, tell us who you are what you are most proud of and of course, why you think this gig might be for you.
