Job Description

Puracy.com is seeking a Vice President of E-Commerce. This person is a seasoned expert who will run all e-commerce and digital marketing for our v-commerce brand. You will work with, and report directly to, the two company founders to set objectives and take full ownership of all digital marketing that surrounds our products and website, Puracy.com. You will work with employees and respective contractors to achieve the set forth goals.

The ideal candidate has a deep e-commerce and digital marketing background (with documented success) at a B2C or digitally native vertical brand with most of the revenue through its own website, not Amazon or other marketplaces.

Puracy.com is a CPG company that develops and sells a popular line of natural and organic household, personal care, and baby care products. Our two dozen products include cleaners, soaps, shampoos, cleansers, detergents, lotions, conditioners, and air fresheners. Our 100% U.S. made product line has won countless awards for quality and efficacy, and many of our products rank near the top of Amazon’s Best Seller lists. We’ve experienced our growth and success almost entirely via e-commerce. We will make our first foray into Brick & Mortar in January 2019 with a launch into Target stores.

Since our company's founding in 2013, our sales have doubled or tripled every year, ranking us as one of the fastest-growing businesses in Austin. We are a small company that rewards our people and regularly donates to local charities. This is your chance to get involved with one of Austin's most promising young businesses at a very early stage.
