DO YOU HAVE?
PASSION - One of our company’s most important rules: We only work with people who are passionate about what they do. You must LOVE being busy and using your natural talents to get things done as well as have a strong passion for living a healthy lifestyle.
HUMOUR - Setting a new standard of honesty & transparency in the health supplement industry takes a lot of effort, and we like to have a lot of fun along the way. If you’re going to fit in at The Nest (that’s what we call our headquarters ;)), you must possess a great sense of humour and love to laugh!
HUNGER - Not just for the complimentary fresh fruit and celebratory lunches at The Nest, but the deep hunger to succeed. We’re looking for a sharp mind we can invest in to grow and let flourish. A positive attitude and a continuous learning/improvement mindset is a must.
HEART - The science is in; the greatest fulfillment we get out of life is when we’ve stretched our limits to achieve something difficult and worthwhile. Athletes call this having “heart” - which means being relentless, doing whatever it takes, and never giving up. It’s embracing the discomfort and challenge that is inevitable when striving towards big goals. (Yes, we also partake in Spartan Races and Polar Plunges.)
We’re a young and ambitious health supplement company based in Vancouver, BC on a mission to set a new standard of honesty and transparency in the industry.
We hire smart, capable, highly adaptable people who have a strong drive and a growth mindset (some of your favourite authors are Carol Dweck, Simon Sinek, Dan Pink, Jim Collins...). And while everyone on our team is an “A-player,” our culture is very collaborative, friendly and flexible.
Our company isn’t just about wellness, it’s built around wellness. That doesn’t just mean that we offer unlimited vacation* time, flexible working hours, daily meditation time and healthy snacks. We also want you to enjoy doing what you do best and we give you the autonomy and support to do it in a way that works for everyone - our customers, the company and you.
The traditional 9-to-5 job is so last century. We’re doing things differently here.
OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
Everything we do—from product development to marketing to customer support to our daily meetings—is about choosing integrity. We’re proud to be building a name for ourselves as a company that is transparent and trustworthy—in an industry where those values are rare. We strive to do the right thing, not the easiest or the cheapest thing. The right thing.
Make A Difference
Nested Naturals is a mission-driven business. We see nutrition as a way to create positive social change. Not only are we committed to making a difference in the lives of our customers, but we also contribute with our time and a portion of our profits to social causes. We’re especially committed to providing nutrition to people in need around the world.
People, Planet, then Profits
Our business is all about helping people live well. That includes our customers (whom we treat as we would our friends) as well as our colleagues. We care about the sustainability and protection of the planet and animal rights. Our business choices reflect these priorities. Don’t get us wrong. We’re a business and we’re growing quickly, but we attribute that to the fact that we put people and the planet first.
We hire great people and give them the freedom, flexibility, and resources to take on ambitious goals every day. We’re big on education and self-development. We offer extensive library of personal development materials.
Work should be fun! We genuinely enjoy each other and what we’re doing. Sure, no business can be cotton candy and clowns all day, but we definitely have a lot of fun together.
YOUR ROLE ON THE TEAM
Amazon; you’ve probably heard of it. It’s the biggest e-commerce platform in the world; nearly a third of Americans have an Amazon Prime membership; and on average those people spend nearly US$1.5k a year on the site. It’s changed the way we browse, the way we shop and the way we spend our money. It’s also central to the explosive year-over-year growth that Nested Naturals has experienced over the past 5 years. Amazon has changed how people shop for the better, and it’s helping Nested Naturals change the way people take care of their health for the better too.
That’s where you come in. This is a full-time position working in the fast-moving, fast-changing, fast-growing Nested Naturals marketing team based in downtown Vancouver, BC. As the eCommerce Channel Manager at Nested Naturals you’ll be the heartbeat of the Amazon function of our business, responsible for continuing our trend of aggressive growth on the platform with support from the rest of the business. You’ll be joining an already experienced marketing team and helping us take our Amazon performance from good to truly great. You’ll be using every tool at your disposal - from digital advertising, to content marketing, to SEO, SEM, and of course the goldmine of data at our disposal - to grow our sales on Amazon in the US, Canada and beyond. This role is central to our company’s growth plan which means you’ll be equipped with a great deal of trust, autonomy and responsibility, which will be balanced with all the support, education and tools/equipment you need to get the job done right.
But what about you? You’re a personality that’s able to understand the big picture while being detail-oriented enough to really enjoy getting into the nuts & bolts of the Amazon platform and how it works. You’re a data nerd at heart, and love solving problems using the plethora of performance metrics at our disposal just as much as you love directly seeing the results of your work reflected in our sales & profitability. You’re a natural team player - you’ll be managing a team in-house and remotely, and working closely with all departments on the regular. You understand that teamwork is a delicate recipe of trust, autonomy, support and communication and you serve it like a Michelin Star chef. You’re meticulous, analytical, and an unrelenting force of action when it comes to solving the unpredictable problems that arise on the regular when navigating the Amazon jungle. If this sounds like you then we’re excited to hear from you, we’re gonna get on great.
