ZBiotics is a science-first company that builds consumer products using biotechnology. We are the world’s first maker of genetically engineered probiotics: probiotic bacteria designed to improve our health in specific, functional ways, sold direct-to-consumer (DTC). We’re funded by Y Combinator (W18), Oyster Ventures, and Khosla Ventures, and recently secured a new round of funding.
We have a new vision for genetic engineering: transparent, responsible, and consumer-first. In service of that vision, we launched our first product last year: a probiotic engineered to break down acetaldehyde, an unwanted byproduct of alcohol associated with the day-after effects of drinking.
We’re seeking a Head of E-Commerce who can own the strategy and technical implementation of our DTC experience. This means managing our website, customer acquisition funnel, analytics stack, and online customer experience. Our need for this role is underlined by recent rapid growth and increasing web traffic. In addition, our 2nd product is scheduled to come to market soon, making it crucial for us to have a best-in-class multi-product DTC platform.
The ideal candidate will have a deep knowledge of the e-commerce landscape, the best tools available, and the strategies and tactics that will take our DTC platform from basic to advanced. They will combine data-driven analysis, expansive creativity, and precise execution to create incredible customer experiences that support the ZBiotics brand.
As employee #7 in a growing startup, the candidate will play an instrumental role in building the long-term foundation of ZBiotics. They will be based in our San Francisco headquarters and will work primarily with the company’s founders and VP of Marketing.
