Glossier Inc. is building the future beauty company in collaboration with its customers.
Glossier is a digital-first beauty company on a mission to inspire everyone to find joy and confidence in their personal beauty style. We create physical, digital, and offline experiences inspired by our community that foster connection, inspire a sense of belonging, and invite people to participate in Glossier. With our stores, we’re creating an entirely new kind of beauty retail experience. Customers don’t visit Glossier to simply to transact—they come to immerse themselves in our brand, explore our curated portfolio of products, and gather and connect with others.
Our store teams operate in environments fueled by our people-first employee experience philosophy rooted in authenticity, integrity, inclusion, equity, and empathy. As a customer-facing Editor (front of house or FOH), it is your job to bring the Glossier magic to life with every customer that comes into our retail environments and interacts with our brand. Driven by an authentic desire to collaborate and engage with others, you will inspire and create exceptional experiences for our customers as they discover and deepen their connection with Glossier throughout their visit and beyond. As an avid team player, you will collaborate with all members of the store team to ensure every customer touch point throughout their experience is cohesive and seamless. Known for being optimistic and able to find joy with every day interactions, you will help set the tone for the overall culture within the store team— joy is our language! Editors will be part of a team of impassioned storytellers, driven by curiosity and the power of the Glossier community, reimagining the future of beauty one experience at a time.
