Reports to (Position Title):                              Talent Acquisition Supervisor

Jacent was formed in 2016 by the merger of LaMi Products and ATA Retail Services, two pioneers in impulse merchandising with a combined 60 years of experience. With the industry’s largest database of retail intelligence, the deepest inventory of impulse products, and the most experienced team, we’re the premier strategic merchandising partner to North America’s retailers.


Jacent sources, warehouses, ships, and stocks over 3,500 impulse items to 14,000 retail stores across the US and Canada. We create a strategic merchandising plan for each store–then place the ideal impulse items in the ideal locations, with follow-up re-ordering and re-stocking. In addition to our impulse business, Jacent offers retail insights and services, such as audits and shelf stocking, to help stores run at peak efficiency.


The result of our work is two-fold: By connecting consumers with the right items—even ones they didn’t know they were looking for—we inspire shopping experiences. And in the process, we’re helping our retail customers generate incremental sales. It’s a win-win.
