  • Conduct regular store audits in the East Coast region, making sure everything is in tip-top shape at our New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut stores
  • Partner with our Brand, Retail, and Operations teams to produce in-store marketing materials (signage, vinyl, and beyond!)
  • Act as the point person for all timelines involving store renovations and repairs, partnering with construction project managers, the Retail Facilities or Operations teams, and the Brand team along the way
  • Manage and update store elements libraries for retail windows and tables

  • A creative problem-solver and expert communicator—in person, on the phone, over email, via carrier pigeon, the whole shebang
  • Hard-working and fun-loving (you take your work seriously, but not yourself)
  • Able to lift and/or carry up to 50 pounds without assistance
  • Experienced with visual displays and installations
  • Someone who knows their way around a tool bag, a power drill, and basic handiwork
  • Able to travel from time to time, and on relatively short notice (carry-on at the ready)

Extra credit:

  • A degree in art or visual communications

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.
