Overview

Room & Board has a unique opportunity for a Visual Merchandising Manager to join our team in Seattle, WA.  

 

Our Visual Merchandising Managers are responsible for creating a showroom environment that is consistent with Room & Board's design point of view, as well as representative of the architecture of the building and the lifestyles of their customers.

 

Our Visual Merchandising Managers are students of the world around them and understand how a home evolves based on life changes, technology, sustainability and other social influences. They are a bridge to Room & Board's design team at the Central Office, helping them understand local competition, trends and meaningful design shifts that influence future development of Room & Board product lines. 

 

They are mentors and educators, engaging the sales team in showroom presentation to further develop design confidence.  Our Visual Merchandising Managers partner with the team to build excitement and inspire others. While this role leads the visual presentation process, it does not have any direct reports.

  • The ability to blend business confidence with design savvy.
  • Being flexible and collaborative, while building strong peer relationships.
  • The natural assumption of accountability for sales and the broader business

  • Aptitude for good time management and process execution.
  • A comfort and ease in engaging customers even in the midst of your work.
  • 5+ years of related visual or merchandising experience required.   
  • Knowledge in color theory.
  • Knowledge with Icovia, floor planning software (preferred but not required). 

The safety and wellbeing of our staff members is paramount. We recognize this role requires physical stamina and therefore require final candidates to complete a pre-employment physical.
