International Director - 12 month FTC

London, England, United Kingdom


Lyst is a Global Fashion Search Platform which connects millions of shoppers globally with the world’s leading fashion designers and stores, giving them a simpler, more engaging buying experience.

At Lyst we work in small self-managing, autonomous teams with end-to-end responsibility for a specific customer-focused project. This structure brings together Lysters from all the disciplines that are needed to deliver the squad’s goals. We reward these squads for the Impact they make and value the innovative approaches that autonomy and alignment can bring. We hire great people and get out of their way.

The role

You will be joining a new team accountable for launching non-English markets, the International Team. Together with a fellow International Director, you will each take responsibility for the P&L of several high-growth international regions. This role will focus on Lyst’s local sites in France, Italy and Spain, although note you may be required to take on responsibility for further countries over the 12 months due to the high-growth nature of the international project.

Reporting to the VP of International, and with the support of 3 dedicated Communications Leads responsible for one market each (reporting directly to you), you will define the strategy and be accountable for the performance of the business in each local market. Your responsibilities will include overseeing marketing, acquiring the right local partners to ensure we are offering the best inventory on each site, and analysing varied sources of performance data to make informed decisions about how best to fuel these already high-growth regions. You will be required to have a good understanding of the eCommerce landscape of the markets you are responsible for and an awareness of the commercial levers available to drive growth, as well as knowledge of wider factors that may impact performance in a region, such as user behaviour or seasonality.

As well as the day to day management of the region, your role will entail managing complex cross-functional projects to enable our commercial success: evaluating new monetization models, launching marketing tools for partners, and spearheading and evaluating new test and learn approaches by market.
