In this role, you’ll develop new products and product features based on a deep understanding of our goals in the niche industry that’s automotive eCommerce. Whether your experience includes a background in automotive or you’re resourceful enough to source what you’ll need to be an expert, you’ll identify and fill product gaps, and generate and execute ideas to grow market share, drive growth, and improve customer experiences. Mapping industry and customer needs to SimplePart’s existing products and features or creating new ones, exploring the potential of intended solutions, and driving the charge internally–it’s all in a day’s work.
