New York, New York






Full Time

Position Title: Sr. Manager, eCommerce Data and Product

Location: New York, NY (Headquarters)

Who We Are

Pernod Ricard is the #2 luxury spirits organization globally. Our world-class spirits, wines, and champagnes portfolio includes Jameson, Absolut, Perrier-Jouet, and Del Maguey to name a few. Globally headquartered in Paris, with affiliate organizations in 80+ countries, we at Pernod Ricard stand for diversity, entrepreneurialism, innovation, but most of all, conviviality. We are creators of conviviailitie. Our passion is bringing people together to create the moments that matter.

What We Do

Our vision is to build the #1 digital commerce ecosystem within beverage alcohol. Our dual mission is to drive significant revenue growth as well as embed sustainable digital-first capabilities into the broader Pernod Ricard USA (PRUSA) ecosystem.

No industry is as ripe for disruption as BevAlc in the US, given prohibition era laws that differentiate us from broader food and beverage or luxury. BevAlc digital commerce transformation projected to take 5+ years has now occurred in the span of weeks, with no signs of slowing down. To win in this new environment, Pernod Ricard USA (PRUSA) has formed a new, dedicated eCommerce & Digital Growth business unit. We are primarily based in NYC, with a hub in SF.

We are a team where a start-up's appetite for innovation, risk-taking, and speed meets the stability, infrastructure, and resources of a scale multi-national organization. This growing team is made up of members spanning commercial, marketing/media, creative/content, product, data science, operations, finance, and biz ops. We hail from eCommerce, start-up/tech, CPG, agency, and management consulting.

What You'll Do

We seek a visionary and analytical leader, with a proven track record of building and scaling full-stack product teams, to establish a new Product & Data capability within PRUSA. Your mission is to build this capability from the ground up and embed within the organization as a permanent capability. You will be a key member of the eCommerce Team and will be expected to drive thought leadership around digital transformation, within the BU, as well as PRUSA. You will be successful if you are able to fluidly pivot between strategy and execution and are equally energized by building products and building capabilities. Up to ~20% US travel (pending global pandemic outlook)
