The Wayfair Story
Wayfair is a rapidly growing e-commerce company that provides everything you ever needed for your home, from kitchen utensils, indoor and outdoor lights, to suites of furniture for your living room, dining room, bedroom and more !
Wayfair set up its European Operations Centre in 2009, in Mervue Business Park, Galway, to provide support for Customers across Europe.
Our main markets are the UK (www.wayfair.co.uk) and Germany (http://www.wayfair.de) and our target audience is anyone who needs to purchase items for their home, from the small apartment / flat, through to large family homes, and everything in between ! From our UK site, we do sell to all European countries, including Ireland !
Globally, Wayfair employs over 4000 people across our various sites in the United States of America, the UK, Germany and Ireland. The Galway office is only part of the picture though as combined with our offices in Berlin and London, our colleagues working in all three locations, together make up our European team.
In Galway, we operate a Multi-lingual team, across a number of functions with German and other European languages being important to us particularly at this point in our growth.
The majority of our roles are Customer Facing, Inbound Sales and Service roles and to support these teams, we have Managers, Team Leads, Quality Analysts, Trainers, Forecasting & Scheduling analysts, most of whom are ‘home grown’ that is to say, career progression is the path from which most roles are filled. Other functions on site, are Finance, Supply Chain Operations and Partner Performance, Logistics, Data Analytics as well as HR, Recruitment, IT and B2B.
At Wayfair, we offer our employees the opportunity to grow and progress within their roles, with specially tailored training and development programs and regular coaching and feedback sessions to ensure all of our employees maximize their full capabilities.
