Product Expansion Manager

Location: New York, NY

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Manager/Supervisor

Warby Parker is a transformative lifestyle brand offering designer eyewear at a revolutionary price while leading the way for socially-conscious businesses. By cutting out the middlemen and engaging directly with consumers, we're able to offer ultra-high-quality, vintage-inspired frames for $95 including shipping. There's a bigger picture, too: social innovation is woven into the DNA of the company, and for every pair of glasses purchased, a pair is distributed to someone in need.
