I first learned about the “subscription gift box” when I profiled Birchbox in mid-2011. Since then the subscription business model has gained a ton of momentum with companies like Beachmint and Quarterly offering different takes on a similar idea. Glossybox is pretty much the same take on the same idea. They’re a New York, NY based company that offers subscription boxes with “exclusive cosmetic samples and perfume samples from the best makeup brands online.” The company is a Rocket Internet venture, which means that the Samwers are behind it. They are brothers who have a reputation for cloning American startups and bringing them to International markets at an insane pace (just look at Rocket Internet’s portfolio companies to get an idea of the scale on which they operate). Glossybox has been around for just about 2 years, and they’ve already raised more than $70 million and shipped more than 2 million boxes.
Glossybox is just like other subscription boxes. If you read through their How It Works and FAQ pages, you should get a pretty good grasp of what they offer for consumers. What you may want to dig deeper into is how Samwer companies are run. Here’s an example. Birchbox operates in four countries. Glossybox was in sixteen as of December. They are aggressive and not afraid to make mistakes. That can make for some amazing learning experiences, which is why you might want to consider looking at Glossybox’s Careers page. Right now they’re looking for an Associate Brand Manager and a Customer Care Manager along with a number of interns. Check the positions out and see if these jobs might be for you.
