What you’ll do

  • Develop compelling, on-brand creative for internal and external communications that drives both brand awareness and sales
  • Help lead and shape the evolution of the Warby Parker brand and champion the value of design within and across the company, mentoring the team to produce inspiring, provocative, and disruptive results
  • Concept, design, and deliver national TV commercials, seasonal lifestyle and still life campaigns for all our collections, and creative assets for other company-wide projects
  • Lead art direction, pre- and post- production, and on-set direction for stills and motion (and, with your producer’s help, keep your shoots on track)
  • Set clear design goals and deliverables, provide direct feedback to keep projects moving, and collaborate across teams with project managers, copywriters, marketing specialists, and business owners
  • Manage multiple projects simultaneously, keeping creative files organized and accessible to the wider team

Who you are

  • Fluent in design, fashion, editorial, film, tech, and retail trends, as well as visual history and classic references—and able to pull from that body of knowledge to ideate, cite visual references, and create beautiful mood boards and mock-ups
  • Organized and entrepreneurial, with the drive to refine your projects from concept all the way to completion
  • Comfortable adapting to shifting priorities and making careful but efficient decisions in the face of tight deadlines (you’re not afraid to push boundaries, but also mindful of budgets and production realities)
  • Super proficient in Adobe Creative Suite and other standard industry software, and experienced in print production
  • Aware of web and mobile technologies, with a conceptual understanding of programming languages, web design, and agile methodology
  • A respectful team player who can motivate, mentor, and collaborate with others, and who’s at ease presenting ideas to team members at all levels of the company

Extra credit:

  • Knowledge of video editing and animation software, like AfterEffects or Premiere
  • Command of web design programs like Figma
  • Experience with Jira or a similar project management system



About Us:

Warby Parker was founded with a mission: to inspire and impact the world with vision, purpose, and style.

We’re constantly asking ourselves how we can do more and make a greater impact—and that starts by reimagining everything that a company and industry can be. We want to demonstrate that a business can scale, be profitable, and do good in the world—without charging a premium for it. And we’ve learned that it takes creativity, empathy, and innovation to achieve that goal.

Since the day we launched in 2010, we’ve pioneered ideas, designed products, and developed technologies that help people see. We offer everything our customers need for happier eyes at a price that leaves them with money in their pockets, from designer-quality glasses and contacts to eye exams and vision tests.

Ultimately, we believe in vision for all, which is why for every pair of glasses or sunglasses we sell, a pair of glasses is distributed to someone in need through our Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program. Over eight million pairs of glasses have been distributed in over 50 countries; that means eight million people now have the glasses they need to learn, work, and achieve better economic outcomes.

At Warby Parker, you can look forward to company outings and events, volunteering and learning opportunities, and just great company filled with curious, kind folks. Dreaming up and sharing ideas aren’t responsibilities reserved for certain teams or leaders; the challenge (a really fun one) of innovation is on all of our shoulders. Teammates can also connect around common interests, backgrounds, and identities, no matter their home base, through our various employee resource groups. (We’re happy to say that the Human Rights Campaign has named us a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ employees!) That sense of community and belonging keeps us excited to walk through the door every day, wherever that door may be.

We’re driven to continue building a workplace, based on inclusive behaviors and equitable systems, where all employees can bring their authentic selves, feel engaged, and share their perspectives as a valued member of Team Warby. Transparency is what we’re all about, and our annual Impact Report and Racial Equity Strategy lay out how we’re sticking to these values.
