The Role

Metalab ships products loved by billions worldwide, influencing how we work, live, and play. Chances are, you've interacted with many products we've helped shape. Now, we need your expertise to craft the future.

The person for this role will be part tastemaker and taskmaster – balancing the ability to be both big picture visionary and creative thinker alongside high detailed data-driven optimization, reporting and insights. You understand the impact of powerful storytelling as much as you understand the importance of data. You’re a self-starter who can comfortably wear many different hats in order to get the job done. You’re not afraid to roll up your sleeves and execute – while also leading a team and overseeing the big picture strategy. Our word-of-mouth reputation has gotten us pretty far, but your job would be to evolve and scale the brand in ways that tactically result in greater awareness, new business, and strong hires.
