Warby Parker is on the lookout for a dynamic, sharp-as-a-tack Senior Strategy Manager to help us revolutionize the eye care industry, applying innovative new practices to achieve sustainable growth. In this role, you’ll lead the research, development, and execution of strategic priorities, becoming an expert on opportunities to expand our business (with an emphasis on addressing the over 100M adults in the US with vision insurance and benefits). You’ll also work cross-functionally to translate these opportunities into reality by partnering with our Brand Management, Retail, Product, Technology, and Customer Experience teams.

  • Collaborate across departments to evaluate the value and implications of new opportunities
  • Facilitate meetings with leaders and stakeholders across the company to develop strategic project plans, outline goals and progress, and gather input and approvals
  • Lead pilot tests, partnerships, and other corporate development activities to drive our long-term strategic priorities
  • Stay on top of the latest news and developments around eye care, retail, customer experience, and technology

Who you are:

  • Backed by 5+ years of experience in a highly analytic and strategic role (bonus points for experience in management consulting or corporate strategy)
  • An optimistic and creative problem solver who’s always eager to learn (you’re comfortable working with uncertainty)
  • Experienced in cross-functional collaboration and coordination
  • A crystal-clear communicator with a deep appreciation for data-driven decision making (you love to translate data into strategic recommendations)
  • Able to develop frameworks and analyses that support complex strategic problem-solving
  • A whiz at Excel and PowerPoint and/or Google equivalent (Sheets, Slides)
  • Not on the Office of Inspector General’s List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE)

About Us:

Warby Parker was founded with a mission: to inspire and impact the world with vision, purpose, and style.

We're constantly asking ourselves how we can do more and make a greater impact, and that starts by reimagining everything that a company and industry can be. We want to demonstrate that a business can scale while doing good in the world, without charging a premium for it. And we’ve learned that it takes creativity, empathy, and innovation to achieve that goal.

Since the day we launched in 2010, we’ve pioneered ideas, designed products, and developed technologies that help people see. We offer everything you need for happier eyes at a price that leaves you with money in your pocket, from designer-quality glasses and contacts to eye exams and vision tests, and you can meet us online, at our stores, or even in your home. Wherever and whenever you need it, we’re there to make exceptional vision care simple and accessible. (Delightful, too.)

Ultimately, we believe in vision for all, which is why for every pair of glasses or sunglasses we sell, a pair of glasses is distributed to someone in need through our Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program.
