Hip eCommerce is searching for a leader to build our Comics category through the HipComic.com marketplace. The collectible Comics market is over $5 Billion per year; and while today, Comics represents just 10% of Hip eCommerce's GMV (Gross Merchandise Value), it’s our fastest growing business, with enormous potential and a key area of our growth plan.
Within the $200 Billion worldwide market of collectibles, there are many unique categories. Hip eCommerce believes that by creating specific marketplaces, built from the ground up to understand how collectors browse, search and collect each type of collectible, we can deliver an exceptional customer experience for both buyers and sellers.
The right leader will spearhead the strategy with key cross-functional partners in marketing, sales, and technology to ensure HipComic.com is the online destination for Comics with a best in class end to end experience covering fixed price listings, auctions, and offers. In addition to driving strategy, the GM of Comics will be focused on proactively seeking out new sellers for our marketplace, working with and expanding the offerings of our existing sellers, and coordinating exciting weekly auction events!
As the GM of Comics, you will be the key stakeholder of the P&L and should be able to define overarching goals and strategy, articulate clear performance goals, execute plans, and monitor and manage key business metrics to achieve high growth results. You will need to be a skilled negotiator and relationship builder, helping a diverse set of sellers scale with us while improving product economics of the category.
