Harry’s is a men’s grooming brand that was built out of respect for quality craftsmanship, simple design, modern convenience, and for guys who know they shouldn’t have to overpay for a great shave. We are able to deliver exceptional value and experiences to our customers because we are vertically integrated. From grinding steel into fine razors blades at our factory in Germany to selling our products directly to customers on our website and select retailers, we own the entire process.

Since launching in early 2013, we have been blown away by the customer response to our brand. Today, we have over 3 million customers and are growing fast. We’re now looking to bring amazing people, like you, together to redefine the way people interact with brands online and in stores across the country.

    • Manage and challenge technical teams (product design engineering, quality, manufacturing) and suppliers through design, prototyping, and development of innovative new products
  • Spearhead New Technology Exploration:  Drive cross-functional initiatives to define next generation technologies for our core intellectual property across all product categories
  • Develop Product Expertise: Own category and develop deep technical knowledge on shaving (and new categories)

  • A Bachelor’s degree in engineering (or comparable technical disciplines) with direct engineering experience and 3-6 years as a product manager or in operations
  • Direct experience with high volume consumer goods (plastics and metals preferred)
  • Experience running projects through a full development cycle (white space, design, prototyping, testing, validation, infrastructure development, ramp-up, etc.)
  • Experienced at managing multiple work streams in a fast-paced, challenging environment with the ability to shift priorities quickly
  • Prior experience with high travel and managing a global supplier base for development and testing

Location

West SoHo is cool without being pretentious, convenient and accessible, and nowhere near Times Square!

An Insider's view of Harry's

What are some social events your company does?

Inspired by the Winter Olympics, we're currently holding our own Harry's Olympics. It's completely ridiculous and incredibly fun! We also have happy hours, breakfasts, lunch and learns, and team offsites. I love joining smaller groups that connect me with people I don't work with everyday.

Maia

Senior Associate, Creative Projects

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As Harry's expands beyond razors, we are focused on building a platform that can support multiple brands, which is transforming our technical infrastructure. We're also collaborating with our data analytics team to better understand our customers, both present and future, and serve personalized and curated experiences to them.

Natalie

Software Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Besides working in an open office (where I’m quite literally always accessible), each week my co-founder & I speak at our all-hands meeting, allowing us to openly share what’s on our minds. We host Q&As, Fireside Chats, Lunch N’ Learns, & I co-sponsor our Women’s Employee Resource Group, where I work with folks at all levels within the company.
