Senior Data Engineer

Harry’s, New York, NY

German engineered blades and shaving cream online for a fair price

Harry’s is a men’s grooming brand that was built out of respect for quality craftsmanship, simple design, modern convenience and for guys who know they shouldn’t have to overpay for a great shave. We are able to deliver exceptional value and experiences to our customers because we are vertically integrated. From grinding steel into fine razors blades at our factory in Germany to selling our products directly to customers on our website and select retailers, we own the entire process.

Since launching in early 2013, we have been blown away by the customer response to our brand. Today, we have over 3 million customers and are growing fast. We’re always looking to bring amazing people, like you, together to redefine the way people interact with brands online and in stores across the country. We have recently raised additional funding to help us develop brands beyond men’s grooming which will expand needs and possibilities for Data Engineering.
