thredUP’s mission is to inspire a new generation of shoppers to think secondhand first.

In addition, thredUP features daily, more than 375,000 women’s and kids’ items for sale—more than all of its competitors combined—from brands ranging from Gap to Gucci, at up to 90% off.
Overview of the Role:
Assistant Merchandisers at thredUP play a crucial role in supporting the Merchandiser with efforts to bridge the gap between warehouse operations and the onsite ecommerce shopping experience. They will report into the Merchandiser and will spend their time at the distribution center. They are knowledgable and passionate about product, brands, and fashion. The Assistant Merchandisers are primarily responsible for pricing and authentication. Through data analysis, building a solid foundation of cross-functional partnerships, and supporting a team of Merchandise coordinators, they will drive ASP and margin growth at the DC level.
