My exposure to new beauty products usually happens in hotel bathrooms. I get introduced to new soaps, shampoos, conditioners, and occasionally something really exotic like a face wash. As you can probably guess, I’m not what you would call beauty obsessed, so I don’t have all that much interest in what new products are out there. But for people who are always looking for something new to try, Birchbox is the answer. They’re a New York, NY based company that offers a $10 a month subscription to customized beauty product samples. They also sell full-size products and offer a ton of content on how to make the most of the samples they send you. The coolest thing about the business is that Birchbox doesn’t even pay for the samples–they get them for free from manufacturers to promote the products. Birchbox works with some really well known brands, so quality is never a question.
I learned about Birchbox from Inc. Magazine’s 30 Under 30 list. They seem to be doing really well, and growing extremely quickly. Their idea is really simple, but it’s perfectly tailored to the beauty industry. Selling beauty products is all about getting people to try new things. By offering a platform to distribute samples that allows manufacturers to track how many people go on to buy full-sized products, Birchbox has positioned itself as more than just a distribution outlet–they’re also a data provider. Additionally, their approach to editorial content makes it more likely that customers will use the products properly and have good experiences with them. If you’re excited about Birchbox, then it’s time to take a look at their Jobs page. Right now they only have one entry level position, which is Graphic Designer, but there are also positions in Software Development, Marketing, Merchandising, and more. They should keep growing, so more entry level jobs should pop up soon.
