Ophthalmologist (Remote)

Warby Parker, New York, NY

Work behind the scenes or in the stores

Warby Parker is seeking ophthalmologists to help us with an exciting new telemedicine service, and we’re looking for doctors who are excited to be on the cutting edge of patient-care innovation. In this flexible, part-time, remote role, you’ll be serving patients via telemedicine, and will be an integral part of the team that’s shaping and expanding our exciting refraction technology (recently featured in Inc. magazine!). Sound like a dream job? Read on:

Why telemedicine?:

  • We started Warby Parker to radically transform the optical industry, and we’ve always believed in using technology to enhance vision care
  • Our ultimate goal is to make safe, routine vision tests more accessible and convenient for the millions of adults who wear prescription glasses and the millions more who need, but do not have access to, vision correction services
  • We’re excited by the impact this technology might have for those in need, both in the U.S. and abroad

Who you are:

  • Eager to help drive healthcare innovation
  • Passionate about providing best-in-class patient care
  • Dedicated to making people happy—you exceed patient expectations with a great attitude while being a fun and generally fantastic team player
  • Someone who enjoys using new technology, both to make day-to-day life easier and to enhance patient care
  • A clear and effective communicator in person, over the phone, and online
  • A self-starter with energy to spare

What you’ll do:

  • Review patient data and provide prescriptions, diagnoses, and recommendations based on a clear, methodical rationale and your clinical judgment
  • Maintain an open dialogue with other doctors, providing two-way feedback and helping to establish best practices
  • Offering feedback on test and platform design that will help shape future iterations

Extra credit:

  • Multiple state licenses
  • Previous experience with telemedicine

About us:


Warby Parker was founded in 2010 with a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. By circumventing traditional channels and designing our frames in house, we’re able to offer insanely high-quality eyewear at decidedly non-insane prices (i.e., from $95 with prescription lenses—a fraction of the going price!).

In the last eight years, we’ve grown to over 60 retail locations in the U.S. and Canada, opened our first optical lab in upstate New York, and launched two of our own iOS apps. And for three years running, Fast Company has named us one of the world’s most innovative companies.

We also hold ourselves to the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility. This means lots of different things, like operating carbon-neutrally and distributing a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair we sell. (We’re big believers that businesses can scale and be profitable while doing good in the world.)
