We are an international company at core. We pride ourselves in self-improvement and broadening our perspective. As a team, we offer free foreign language lessons for all of our employees to promote open-mindedness and multi-cultural thinking.

RESPONSIBILITIES

We are looking for a Product Compliance specialist who can make sure our products are compliant as we scale our brands globally. Because we start brand new products constantly, we are in need of a talented self-starter who can make sure our products will be compliant.

Here are some of the things that you will be measured on : 

1) You should be able to thoroughly understand label requirements, product compliance, tariff/duty implication, and banned substance on a wide array of products. From skincare products or electronic goods, you should feel comfortable undertaking projects from different industries. To give you perspective, we launch a product every week, meaning the team expects a timely response on all projects. 

2) You should be able to understand cross-border environment. We understand that the label requirement may be different on a per country, per region basis. We ask you to be the owner of all things relating to regulatory compliance, and expect you to provide an answer to questions that may involve countries that you never previously worked on. For instance, compliance of haircare products in Italy vs. Colombia may be thrown your way. If you don't know the answer, we expect you to either A) find the answer yourself B) contract/hire someone who can. 

3) You should be able to judge how compliant we need to be. As a startup, speed takes priority in many instances, and ironically, it may be your responsibility to educate us on the balance between speed/progress vs. compliance. We expect you to thrive under fast-paced, start-up environment and you shouldn't be afraid to break things!
