We’ve grown quickly in a short time and are continuing to do so while aggressively growing our revenue.

Duties & Responsibilities:

  • Manage Zoro’s eCommerce product data feeds in an end-to-end capacity; e.g. setup imports, configure field mapping, restructure product data to fit the criteria of specific channels, setup data exports, etc.
  • Identify, diagnose, and fix data feed issues across platforms like Google/Bing Merchant Center, Feedonomics, ChannelAdvisor, etc. 
  • Optimize data feeds using industry best practices to help product listings reach their full potential with robust, consistent, and accurate product and inventory data 
  • Stay abreast of data changes within Zoro; proactively upgrade eCommerce data feeds to create value for the business through the use of new fields, values, logic, etc. 
  • Stay abreast of policy and requirements changes across Marketing channels (Google, Bing, eBay, Facebook, etc.)
  • Develop data governance, alerting & monitoring approaches to speed up issue identification & resolution
  • Introduce and maintain documentation for all critical data flows
  • Manage the creation of promo offers and set up in NetSuite



  • Candidate must be self-directed and effective working independently, yet equally comfortable contributing in a fast-paced team environment
  • Positive attitude and ability to forge strong cross-team relationships; ability to support a diverse array of stakeholders with high levels of service delivery
  • Strong problem-solving skills and attention to detail
  • Familiarity with standard word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation software (Office or Gsuite)
  • Familiarity with programming languages (particularly SQL) and APIs will come in handy, though individuals with significant database administration or professional programming experience are over-qualified for this position
  • Bachelor’s degree preferably in an area with a technology focus e.g. Information Systems, Computer Science, or related field
  • Experience setting up workflows in an automation system is helpful
  • If remote, may require travel to Chicago 1-2 times per year
