We’re Hiring! Part-Time Product Expert

Role: PART-TIME PRODUCT EXPERT at Shop Good

Overview:

Shop Good is a clean beauty and wellness and beauty company out to simplify how the modern woman lives well.  We are passionate about holistic wellness; from what we put in our bodies to what we put ON it, and believe that natural ingredients have the power to both heal and beautify from the inside-out and outside-in. We’re out to make healthy living effortless, accessible and downright FUN. We do this via our uniquely filtered assortment of beauty, skincare and wellness products, our in-shop organic spa and our educational and community-driven workshops and events.

Originally an online-only store, Shop Good opened their first location in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego in October of 2017 and their second location in April of 2019 in Del Mar Heights neighborhood of San Diego. Our personalized in-shop experience and organic spa offers each and every customer a bio-individualized approach to skin and wellness, all with a mission to inspire clean living across the San Diego community and beyond!

The Role:

Our Shop Good Product Expert is a self-starter at heart, with a pre-existing passion and education around natural ingredients, skin, holistic wellness and healthy living. We are looking for that special someone who is excited to inspire, educate and introduce the best in clean products utilizing their deep knowledge in skincare, natural makeup and wellness products in a retail sales setting. 

The person we hire is organized, clean product + holistic health-obsessed, creative, a social media expert, a clear communicator and a customer-service lover, ensuring every customer feels attended to, happy, inspired by and treated to the Shop Good standards, all within our modern and upbeat environment.

Above and beyond, we are looking for someone who wants to help grow Shop Good.  Unlike many retail sales roles, Shop Good undoubtedly offers many entrepreneurial growth opportunities beyond sales; including marketing, public relations, event planning, brand management, content creation and an extended education in natural skincare and wellness. Because of this, a quality candidate must be a self-defined doer, a leader, an entrepreneur at heart and a natural at multi-project management.

As our natural product specialist, you will be leading each customer through a unique and individualized in-store experience, catering their product recommendations specific to their bio-individual and personal needs, skin types, body types and health goals.  You do not need to know our exact brands and their ingredients before you start, but you need to be passionate about learning and able to jump in with eagerness around researching, studying and deeply getting to know our products and brands.

People who are not self-starters, not flexible, not open to feedback, not strong communicators need not apply. In your cover letter, please briefly tell us your favorite song and why! You are meant for this role if you are excited about a fast-paced, start-up environment with a love and appreciation for natural beauty and holistic health.

Ultimately, we are looking for someone who makes multi-tasking look easy, who is eager to support our store manager, our founder, our Holistic Estheticians and our customers, who is passionate about natural products and holistic health and who is wholeheartedly enthusiastic about growing with our business. If this is you, we can’t wait to meet you!
