To apply, please include your cover letter and resume, along with completing our Culture Index survey at https://go.cultureindex.com/p/oerDbXnojk !

We want to tell you a bit more about our work culture – who we are, what we do, and most importantly, our why.

Luxe Brands is a high-end, designer bridal boutique company that offers brides luxury, designer gowns at a discounted price. We are continuously expanding opportunities for our brides to shop with us, offering both in-store and online shopping experiences. Currently, Luxe Brands consists of La Jeune Mariee (1 brick-and-mortar location), Luxe Redux (8 brick-and-mortar locations), and we’ve expanded our e-commerce options to provide multiple offerings for our brides to shop online + say yes!

Our core values are the heart of our business. They are more than words; they are our culture + in-house lifestyle. Within our company, we believe in hiring the Right Person, Right Seat (RPRS) using the EOS management system. We look for both a core value fit, as well as someone who exemplifies our GWC – get it, want it, and capacity to do it.

Please review our core values below:

  • Respectful: Foster respect + a friendly nature towards co-workers and clients
  • Service Minded with Attention to Detail: Exude fanatical attention to detail and consistency while striving for excellence in daily tasks
  • Trustworthy: Be an open and honest individual to our clients and team members - this helps drive sales + camaraderie
  • Hardworking: Will go above and beyond to finish any task and provide extra assistance and effort to co-workers and the company
  • Positive and Energetic: Doesn’t let unfortunate circumstances, whether they be personal or work-related, come in the way of attitude at work amongst the team
  • Values Communication: Effectively interacts with clients and co-workers through verbal and non-verbal communication to reach a common goal.

If you deeply resonate with our values – wait until you meet our team! Our Luxe Brands family is comprised of career-minded, goal-oriented, and inspiring individuals. We are full of hustle and heart – and know our people are our biggest competitive advantage. Our team is passionate about delivering an exceptional experience to each customer, and we feel honored to have the opportunity to be a #hypesquad for our brides. While this happens at the sales level, our support staff and those behind the scenes start the experience by maintaining superb organization and facilitating an organized process. We all work together to make the magic happen!

Now, let’s talk #workperks! While bridal is a niche market of retail – our hours certainly don’t reflect those of traditional retail hours [goodbye early mornings + late, late nights!]. Also, pop the champs, we are CLOSED on all of those special holidays where big box retail finds it revenue worthy to be open.

Our Inventory Manager will have a regular schedule primarily Monday through Friday, with flexibility to take on special projects as needed. This position requires working at our distribution center in Columbus, OH, and may require travel to other Luxe Brands locations.

This position is fast-paced and requires knowledge of the retail industry as well as the basic operations of the business. Effective cross-functional communication with the buying team and the distribution center is imperative. This position maintains the organization and flow of inventory intake from different vendors in our distribution center including the development of inventory receiving, processing procedures, PO management and inventory storage methods by working closely with our processors to maintain efficient turnaround time.

The manager also manages the schedules of employees, deliveries, and shipments to optimize operations.

The main goal of this position is to lead our online and distribution inventory teams toward creating an efficient internal inventory supply chain. This includes everything from acquisition to clearance to maintain the profitability of items.

The Inventory Manager oversees all inventory flow and processes from the initiation of Purchase Orders to receipt and distribution for all Brands and channels within the Luxe Brands portfolio. This position is 100% focused on ensuring priorities are aligned to keep the supply chain moving at an efficient and profit-driven speed.

  • Fanatical attention to detail
  • Keen eye for analyzing situations and identifying opportunities, both directly and in-directly
