“Hi Chelsea, let me dig into that sizing query for you”. 

"I don’t know why that last email campaign didn’t perform but I looked at the data and I think we should try this".

“I looked at our GA and saw that we could adjust these parameters on the website”. 


As the E-commerce coordinator, you will be responsible for ensuring our inventory is sound and our customers are happy.

Experience and skills:

You have a combination of 2-4 years experience in data analysis and e-commerce, as well as experience in customer service. 

The ideal candidate will be proficient in, and enjoy doing: 

  • Data Nerdy things: We are looking for a self-described detail obsessed, data nerd! You love diving into the data and you know your way around every corner of Google Analytics. Our team has a top level understanding of GA and you have the ability to get even more granular to guide strategy and decision making. 
  • Detailed things: You are hyper-attentive to detail and can spot dead links and website inconsistencies in both the frontend and backend. Details matter. You love absorbing information, making connections and optimising. 
  • Customer happiness things: You gotta like people. You will build relationships with customers as you resolve their queries and turn them into fans for life. 
  • Strategic things: You are both strategic and empathetic in your analysis of data, especially when reviewing and making recommendations around website UX and design. In this space, done is better than perfect. 
  • The Medium of Email: You have experience with email automation and building DRIP campaigns to move customers through the purchase funnel. We use Hubspot and Mailchimp currently, but your experience can be with other similar ECRM tools (you know what ECRM means).

Bonus skills and interests:

  • Startup experience (or ready to take the plunge from corporate); 
  • Shopify experience and a willingness to learn more about the platform; 
  • Ability and interest to get involved in other aspects of other business; and,
  • This is a soccer-focused company so we are ultimately looking for someone who is equally passionate about the game and the mission of Ida Sports to empower female athletes (we're on a mission to change the game for women in sport. It's more than just a shoe).

We’re a small but growing company which means you should be prepared to improve current systems and build new systems. You should be comfortable with constant change and ambiguity, while simultaneously helping us plan further ahead and constantly improve processes. You should be ready to get scrappy, own your world, and take initiative to get things done. Challenges are seen as opportunities and your growth mindset helps you to learn anything new that you don't already know. We are global which means the occasional meeting at weird hours, but we try to keep these to a minimum. There is also room to grow within the company and this position!
