Retail Facilities Associate Manager job in New York City
|Company Type:||Certified B Corporation|
|Impact Area:||Quality of Life|
|Company Name:|| Warby Parker|
|State / Province:||New York (NY)|
|City:||New York City|
We’re searching for an extremely organized and hardworking Retail Facilities Associate Manager, who’s equipped with experience managing multi-unit retail locations. This is a job for someone who has a genuine passion for people, systems, and solving problems. But most importantly: You’re fun!
This is a fast-paced role, so be prepared for a serious workout. On an average day, you’ll be responding to facilities requests, tracking budgets, inspecting the quality of work by third-party vendors, and constantly communicating with store, office, and lab partners. Additionally, the Facilities Specialist, under the supervision of the Facilities Manager, will manage all outside contractors in support of the Development Department. You can probably tell this is a perfect position for someone who has a hard time sitting still. So if you like wearing multiple hats and juggling competing priorities, you passed the first test (and we advise you to keep reading).
What you’ll do:
Who you are:
Warby Parker was founded in 2010 with a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. By circumventing traditional channels and designing our frames in house, we’re able to offer insanely high-quality eyewear at decidedly non-insane prices (i.e., from $95 with prescription lenses—a fraction of the going price!).
In the last seven years, we’ve grown to over 50 retail locations in the U.S. and Canada, opened our first optical lab in upstate New York, and launched two of our own iOS apps. And for three years running, Fast Company has named us one of the world’s most innovative companies.
We’re also a certified B Corporation, so we’re held to the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility. This means lots of different things, like operating carbon-neutrally and distributing a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair we sell. (We’re big believers that businesses can scale and be profitable while doing good in the world.)
Of course, all work and no play makes an extremely dull office, and no one likes an extremely dull office. (We sure don’t.) As an employee at Warby Parker, you can look forward to company outings, guest speakers, volunteering opportunities, and other brain- (and/or taste-bud-) stimulating activities. It also doesn’t hurt that our team is just great company.
