Product Data Associate
at LoveCrafts in London
Our vision at LoveCrafts is to create an entirely new platform for the global maker community – one craft at a time. We launched our first site, LoveKnitting.com four years ago – early success led to funding from one of Europe’s leading venture investors – and we haven’t looked back since. With a global customer base, physical hubs in London, Manchester, Kyiv, Ukraine and Missouri, USA; and 3 x growth year on year, we’ve grown from startup to sensation in a very short space of time.
As we set out to converge traditional crafts with the digital age we are looking for exceptional talent to help us disrupt and innovate in this highly dynamic sector. We’re playing with the very best in web, mobile, social, commerce and media technology as we create the perfect digital business for all things craft related.
Our team is smart, kind and slightly kooky with talent that is insatiably curious and supremely ambitious. We hire and nurture inquisitive, creative minds looking to flourish in a supportive and collaborative environment that includes social and e-commerce stalwarts hailing from the likes of Amazon, eBay, and Pinterest.
About the opportunity
We’re looking for a super-organised associate to join our growing Product Data team, which is dedicated to owning and expanding the product ranges that we sell. You’ll be working closely with our marketing and supplier teams, preparing for the launch of exciting new brands and beautiful new products on our website. From start to finish, you will own a selection of new products and be responsible for working with our operations team, copywriters, photographers, data entry and quality checking teams to get the products in stock and live online, looking good, on time.
As a company, we’ve got enormous plans and from very early on you’ll also have the opportunity to step up and take on some of the big-hitting projects we’ve got in the pipeline. Some will improve our ways of working to make us more efficient and to constantly improve the quality of our work, others involve rethinking how our products are displayed online to show them off in all their glory, and to give our customers as much helpful information about them as possible – the ultimate goal is always to wow our visitors, inspiring them to love crafts as much as we do!
