Job Description:

Vessel is an early-stage startup bringing wellness tracking into the home. Wellness tracking often lacks accessibility. Even more frustrating is when products geared at helping us improve wellness lack clear action steps. Through our at-home urinalysis test card, users have the ability to track wellness metrics such as - Vitamins C, B7, B9, Magnesium, Hydration, pH, and Cortisol. Users then receive customized food and lifestyle recommendations based on their specific results. Our users can actually order food and customized multivitamins to navigate deficiencies and optimize their wellness. We're still in the scrappy startup phase, and are looking for people who are comfortable with the fast pace and adaptability. We're a mostly remote team. We value shipping epic products, having each other's back, doing things the right way, and always optimizing in our personal and professional lives. Our product went live in late 2020 and we already have thousands of happy paying customers who are using Vessel to gain awareness on their personal metrics, make lifestyle adjustments, and see their wellness improve. We're an experienced team with a diversity of skills and backgrounds that range from early stage and unicorn startups to large public corporations.
