OLIPOP was founded in 2017 by Ben Goodwin and David Lester. Ben and David have been working together for nearly a decade to find accessible solutions to bring the benefits of digestive health to as many consumers as possible.  OLIPOP is a deliciously refreshing tonic that is crafted with prebiotics, botanicals and natural plant fiber to support your microbiome and benefit digestive health. We're on a mission to provide an affordable, delicious alternative to soda that delivers leading edge health benefits to mainstream consumers.


Our team is a special bunch, with a very unique way of working. We’re all fully remote, which makes us all highly collaborative and resourceful. We share a singular mission to make the world a better place with a product that supports your health and is truly enjoyable. And while we’re invested in our product, we’re equally invested in one another's personal development. We’re tightly knit, we’re genuine and we’re always pushing the envelope to do a better job than we did the day before.


OLIPOP is seeking an authentic, passionate, empathetic, and self-directed leader with an entrepreneurial spirit to manage people operations and culture during an exciting period of growth for OLIPOP.  You will ensure that HR initiatives and programs reinforce the company's culture and values, and help foster an environment where people are challenged to do their best work, believe they can make a difference, and instill the passion to grow, learn and innovate. 



Humility, Aspiration, Commitment, Integrity- our OLIPOP company values. Start-up is as much a personal journey as it is a professional one. We can teach you functional skills, but we can’t change the way that you view and interact with the world. To succeed at a company like this, you need to be able to fail, learn, adapt and fail again. You need to be able to keep going when others would likely give up. You need to be able to find a way when it seems impossible. You need to be humble enough to learn and confident enough to express yourself. If this is how you’ve lived your life, if these are the lessons your lived experiences have taught you, then we’d love to hear from you.
