Job Description

ABOUT DSC:

In 2011, we didn't just disrupt the entire shaving industry; we revolutionized it, shattering conventions with a viral video sensation that became the gold standard for humor in advertising. Our trailblazing direct-to-consumer model didn’t just pave new paths—it bulldozed age old industry giants, minting us as a force to be reckoned with.

Dollar Shave Club crafted not just products, but experiences. We made shaving not suck by cutting out all the unnecessary BS that's been upsold to guys for decades. We continued to make great f**king blades and also became the geniuses behind tons of dude-centric products like Ball Spray, offering solutions to problems men didn't know they needed.

Today we continue to expand our international grooming arsenal, and hold fast to the disruptive DNA and irreverent humor that catapulted us to fame. Our global expansion and presence in tens of thousands of retail stores are testaments to our commitment to make the hairy globe a little smoother.
