This leader will be a key change agent in Nike’s digital business acceleration plans and will bring a variety of expertise and perspectives to an already experienced team, leveraging current best practices while identifying areas to challenge the status quo.

At Nike, we take a team approach to everything we do and being a team player is considered the first step towards driving mutual success. Our most effective commercial leaders can understand our strategy and translate it into plans encompassing both medium-term projects, short-term routines and task lists to be executed in partnership with cross-functional teams.

WHAT WILL YOU WORK ON?

Sitting within the Nike Direct Digital Commerce (NDDC) organization, the Site Experience Manager is responsible for optimizing the consumer’s digital journey end to end ensuring the best representation of our product assortment, and brand and commercial campaigns across Nike.com and Nike App.

In any given season, you will monitor and manage in-season product and life cycle from a commercial lens.

On a weekly and daily basis, you will establish an efficient process and checkpoints to manage and continuously optimize the Product wall maintenance, refresh, and Product Detail Page optimization across Nike.com & Nike App. You will also partner with our analytics and platform teams in assessing the traffic sources and consumer navigation to seek enhancement opportunities leveraging business analytics & insights. You will be supported in execution by your team as well as internal and external partners.

You will analyze standard weekly reporting and dashboards, guide your team in performing deep dives, and will share insights and priorities with cross-functional partners to drive actions that improve the consumer experience and impact KPIs. For this purpose, you will regularly review detailed action plans for what is working, understand relevant functional insights (e.g., inventory dynamics) and drive agile execution for aligned priorities.

You will spend substantial time in all the above but in the context of a team leadership role: you will work to ensure clarity on goals and that teams are consistently delivering against them, motivating them to operate with speed and agility. You will set the tone for growth mindset in your team, embodying our mantra ‘there is no finish line’ seeking new ideas proactively, driving a test & learn agenda, and will constantly work to upskill the team to create a competitive edge through our site experience.

You will work with the platform team to incorporate strategies and capabilities into our tactics, in order to better serve consumers and drive “End-to-End” KPIs. You will collaborate with our Demand and Supply Management, Digital Operations and Digital Marketing teams in order to gather all perspectives and coordinate execution of those tactics. Establishing efficient processes to manage this complex multi-functional environment will be of the most importance.

To reach this goal effectively, you will be a key leader in the broader Japan Digital Commerce organization.
