Our Mission

At Prose, we don’t believe in “one-size-fits-most.” We create custom beauty care (hair & skin at the moment) that is inclusive to all profiles, needs, and preferences. Each of our products is customized to a person’s needs based on the results from an online consultation. The individual data is processed through a proprietary algorithm and made-to-order in the Prose lab using natural active ingredients. Marrying emerging technologies with the best in beauty, Prose is truly creating something special.

This is the opportunity to join a fast-growing scale-up and an energetic team that works together to deliver creative solutions that are transforming the way people think about and shop for hair and skin care. We’re looking for talented problem solvers who lead with passion and who face any task with a positive mindset. We are serving millions of customers right now in North America!

Prose values

Intentional Inclusivity

  • We know the best ideas come from open minds and willingness to listen. While our products cater to the individual, an invitation into our process is always open to our community.
  • We value our differences and diverse backgrounds by communicating openly, managing with transparency and striving to understand one another’s perspective. It’s a key ingredient to our innovation.

Connected Collaboration

  • Our strength as a group will outlast our efforts as individual contributors. With offices across countries (and across boroughs) staying inventive and agile deepens our clear vision and consistent communication.

Driven, Together

  • We value ownership and coaching that encourages employees to think constructively and creatively about the business. We view employees as leaders and individuals who are accountable, resourceful and responsible. Anyone and everyone is encouraged to lead.
  • We recognize that in order to continue thinking one step ahead, we will need to try new things. We strive to provide an open environment that accepts this truth making space for new ideas to emerge.

Humanity Always

  • We assume good intentions in every interaction keeping ourselves accountable for the climate we create. We seek to understand our co-workers through this lens of conscious bienveillance, authenticity and fellowship.
  • We operate with the intention of preserving resources, creating an environment we can all live in — for our business and the world. Sustainable care is essential to our ethos as an organization. We take a mindful approach to how we think about our people (employees) and our planet.
