E-Commerce In Seattle

My spouse is getting transferred to Seattle for work and so we’re planning to move the family in early fall. I can work remotely for my current employer for a short while but ideally I’d like to have a new job lined up by the time I get to Seattle. I work in inventory planning. Any e-commerce companies that you’d recommend in the Seattle area? I’m looking into established companies and startups too. Amazon is an option but I’d like to know what else is out there.

      I love Amazon and don’t regret working here at all. It’s such a huge company that no opinion really matters anymore... your experience is almost entirely dependent on your manager and team dynamic.

      The fact that one says “no opinion really matters.”

      By opinion, I meant anonymous online opinions about company culture and work life balance.

    Microsoft has demand planning jobs for devices and a variety of other businesses. Tommy Bahama, Nordstrom, REI, Nintendo I think are other places in Seattle.

    For Amazon you want to look at Instock Manager jobs or Product Manager jobs. I don’t really recommend Vendor Manager because it’s essentially automated at this point. It’s good if you want to manage portfolios for strategic companies and you like account management. Bad if you want to make decisions.

    Depends on the department at zulily but I’d definitely recommend taking a look. You could also look at Nordstrom, Starbucks, or REI (near by)

      The worst thing that can happen is you get sucked in for the money and are made to work on legacy systems which will bring down your career. Be careful of what you are getting into , ask a lot of questions

      Ok , ask them why they are hiring you , what role they expect you to play etc .. ask them whether you will be involved in mantaining any legacy systems , if answer is yes , dig deeper and understand more. Be firm upfront on your needs.

      Not good. Hierarchical culture and hardly any growth.

      It’s pretty good in Seattle.

      Relaxed working environment but odd hours due to Korea team. Growth of the company is exponential.

    Zulily has the benefit of being part of the larger Qurate network which means planning for more than just zulily itself.

    REI is moving out of the hellhole that is Kent and into Bellevue next June. A good amount of IT jobs are already in a satellite office in Bellevue. Check the others that people have mentioned. Sur la table is also local but don't know the environment there
