About Harrys UK

We built Harry’s with one simple belief: everyone deserves a great shave at a fair price. Co-founded by one of the entrepreneurs behind Warby Parker, Harry’s seeks to provide our own brand of exceptional shaving products direct to our customers. We launched in the US in March 2013, and have been blown away by the customer response since then.

At Harry's, our vision is to become a global, multi-channel men's grooming brand. The UK is the first standalone market outside the US and Canada, and launched in June 2017. Consider it a start-up, within an amazingly successful start-up!

We’ve brought together a focused team of talented people to successfully grow Harry’s in the UK, achieve our commercial goals, build strong relationships with our customers and make Harry’s UK a truly amazing place to work. Since launch we’ve been delighted with the results, sentiment and feedback we have seen and are on-track to deliver our commercial, brand and employee goals.

It’s an exciting time to join an exciting business.
