Position Description:

We are looking for an experienced eCommerce Account Manager to join the team! The Account Manager plays a pivotal role in the continued growth of the business by being the face of Powerplay while managing the Amazon Seller/Vendor Central account for our most important direct sales clients. Along with building relationships with clients, this position will be responsible for the implementation of innovative brand strategy and search engine optimization.

Who we are:
