We’re looking for a Product Manager to join the Data Science and Applied Research teams at Warby Parker. You’ll join two teams that include practitioners of statistics, machine learning, computer vision, and electrical engineering who work closely with stakeholders across the company to develop business-improving, customer-delighting products. Last year alone we simulated billions of potential supply chain networks, created a vision test that you can take on your mobile phone, and developed an emoji-powered Halloween costume recommender. Want to help us advance the technology that got Warby Parker featured in Forbes, Vogue, The New York Times, and Inc., and named “Most Innovative” by Fast Company? Read on for more about the job.

Extra credit (by no means required!):
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 eight years, we’ve grown to over 60 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 also hold ourselves 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.
