At-home oral health testing, coaching & care
Start by sending your resume in and include whatever materials you believe are important and showcase your abilities. Feel free to elaborate past your resume - we know first-hand that there are experiences and projects that won't be reflected in a job title or metric.
We developed the world’s first consumer oral microbiome test to measure oral health - including risk factors for cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. We use those insights to help people improve their oral and overall health through personalized diet, hygiene, and product recommendations plus 1:1 coaching.
We're still in the scrappy startup phase, having launched our oral health platform in September. We're looking for people who are comfortable working in ambiguity and thrive when they can launch projects from 0 to 1 - and then drive from 1 to 100.
Our team is made up of self-starters obsessed with making a meaningful impact in health and care. We constantly learn from each other and the experts we work with. We're looking for people who can bring deep experiences, diverse perspectives, and fresh backgrounds to our team.
⭐ We've had a lot of exciting momentum over the last year:
🏁 Graduated Y Combinator's W21 batch
🦠 Kicked off a clinical research study with the University of the Pacific Dental School
🎉 Closed our seed round led by Initialized Capital
🦷 Launched our oral health platform in September
As our first marketing hire, you will be responsible for shaping and improving the way we engage, acquire and retain customers. You will be responsible for all aspects of new user growth and accountable for KPIs including CAC, CVR and ROAS.
As is typical for a startup, there will be other projects and efforts we'll need your help with, so you’ll be collaborating directly with Product and Customer Experience. You will report to and work directly with our CEO, Danny.
You will monitor, manage, improve, and execute all aspects of growth.
Design, deploy and lead customer discovery efforts at Bristle to understand their journey. Leverage a combination of advanced analytics, data-driven experiments and elbow grease - talk to our users!!!
Use those insights to develop and grow channels that expand our reach and meet our target audience where they are. Optimize & scale our marketing efforts through performance/organic marketing channels, email, and affiliate marketing.
Create and iterate on messaging, content, and design to communicate the value Bristle provides. Launch new A/B tests to increase our conversion rate and reduce our CAC.
Growth doesn’t stop at purchase. You will work bi-directionally with Product and Customer Experience to continually ideate, test, and iterate on ways we can provide more value to our customers.
Work with our founding team to determine our strategic direction, advocating for our users and incorporating your own intuition. Envision how different users experience Bristle and bring that to life in a way that feels inspired, refined, and magical.
None of these are required but generally describe the kinds of people we believe will have the biggest impact at Bristle.
We want you to be at your best - our goal is to get to know you, hear about your interests and experience, and share more about our work. We don't believe in "gotcha" style questions, complex interviews, or getting free work done disguised as 10-hour take-home projects.
Start by sending your resume to us and include whatever materials you believe are important and showcase your abilities. Feel free to elaborate past your resume - we know first-hand that there are experiences and projects that won't be reflected in a job title or metric.
You'll have a brief 15-minute phone call with a member of our team (we'll let you know way before the call). You won't need to prepare anything in advance. You'll learn more about Bristle and have a chance to ask questions about our product, culture, and company.
If we're both excited to move forward, we'll send you some materials about Bristle and give you ample time to review them.
We'll schedule a few more conversations to walk through your past work and discuss some considerations around growth. We want to understand your aptitude, approach, and experience. We'll also want to understand your initial impressions about Bristle - what you like, what you think we need to improve, and anything else you want to share.
You’ll meet people across our team, including advisors and investors.
You'll reconnect with us for an hour-long challenge and we won't require any pre-work but will provide you with some insight into what you can expect. The goal of this challenge is to assess your marketing chops. The challenge will be practical, relevant, and achievable. We want to see you at your best, focusing on actual projects and problems we have - we aren't interested in watching you struggle through an ambiguous or complicated project.
We'll connect with a few people you've worked with. At this point, we're expecting to hear great things so it's primarily a way for us to better understand the best way to work with you.
We're creating a new category - it's a lot of work but also provides endless opportunities for creative ideas that solve real-world problems. Job descriptions are necessarily ambiguous at our stage. You will have a deep influence on Bristle and a direct impact on our users.
While we're a remote-enabled company we are particularly **interested in applicants that are in or willing to relocate to San Diego (but are flexible on this, so please don't let that prevent you from applying!).
We value your time and believe in transparency and level-setting. Compensation can be a gating factor regardless of how much we want to work together, and the reality is that we are an early-stage company with limited capital. That said, as we grow so will your role and compensation. Our salary range for this role is ~$90k with equity between 0.3%-0.5% depending on experience, skills, and fit.
Bristle helps people understand and improve their oral health. We developed an at-home oral microbiome test to measure oral health status - including risk factors for cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. We use those insights to help people improve their oral and overall health through personalized recommendations, education, and behavioral change.
