  • Participate in pitches, business development, and public speaking opportunities.
  • Work internally and externally to stay abreast of new developments in digital commerce, including new platforms/technologies, interacting with partners, and the latest thinking on modern commerce experiences.
  • Lead the definition of technology strategies for clients, Front End and back-end, including evaluations and vendor selections, exploring needed capabilities (across people, process, and technology), and consult on key technology decisions with internal and external teams.
  • Regularly partner with cross-functional teams - including visual and experience design, product management, user research, product, analytics, SEO, and project management - in the creation of concepts and experiences that align to the vision for a client.
  • Mentor and manage senior team members, including selecting platform technologies.

Requirements:

  • 5-7 or more years of experience in commerce consulting, including delivering technology strategies to senior executives.
  • A strong understanding of the current commerce technology platform landscape, emerging technologies in the commerce space, and common solution architectures (ranging from headless or MACH based to more monolithic patterns).
  • Broad exposure to large (eg, Salesforce Commerce Cloud, SAP Commerce Cloud, Oracle Commerce Cloud), mid-market (Shopify, BigCommerce, Magento), and modern or more emergent (commercetools, elasticpath, VTEX, Fabric) solutions.
  • Experience in researching and exploring new solutions, developing relationships with platforms, and directing the work of others.
  • Familiarity with leading content and experience management platforms (including Contentful, Amplience, Bloomreach) is a plus.
  • Experience with complex Front End architectures, including API-based models, is a plus.
  • The ability to estimate work and staffing, and strategize to satisfy client budgetary requirements.
