ZBiotics is a consumer health startup pioneering the category of genetically engineered probiotics. Our team of PhD scientists takes traditional probiotics and enhances them – giving them powerful new functionalities that improve human health and enrich daily life. We incorporate these new probiotics into our own branded products and sell them direct-to-consumer (DTC).
Our first product – the world’s first ever genetically engineered probiotic to go to market – helps people feel better the day after drinking alcohol by breaking down acetaldehyde, one of alcohol’s toxic byproducts. We launched this product in August 2019, and since then we’ve closed a Seed Round of funding and successfully developed product #2, which will launch in 2021. We’re backed by Y Combinator (W18), Oyster Ventures, and Khosla Ventures.
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.
We’re a team of deep thinkers who care about the future of the world and the role of science in that future. Our mission at ZBiotics is to help people live healthier, richer lives using science, while at the same time pioneering a new vision for genetic engineering as transparent, responsible, and consumer-first.
While this passion drives our work, we never forget that work is just one aspect of our lives. That’s why we prioritize building a healthy and inclusive culture where people thrive by being themselves and are inspired to do their best work every day.
We provide attractive benefits, salary, and equity compensation, along with a flexible schedule and vacation policy.
