Full-time
At Mayvenn, we are creating the future of salon retail - one hairstylist at a time. Our mission is to empower hairstylists and salon professionals while changing the way people purchase hair extensions and interact with hair companies. We've experienced tremendous growth since our founding in 2013: our platform has grown into a nationwide movement of over 100,000+ stylists,  hundreds of thousands of customers, and millions of dollars invested back into salons across the country.

At each stage, you will anticipate what our users need, advocate for them and ensure that the final product surprises and delights them.
