Our Mission

At Prose, we don’t believe in “one-size-fits-most.” We create custom beauty that’s inclusive to all hair & skin types, needs, and preferences.

Marrying emerging technologies with the best in beauty, Prose is truly creating something special.

This is the opportunity to join a fast-growing startup and an energetic team that works together to deliver creative solutions that are transforming the way people think about and shop for personalized beauty. We’re looking for talented problem solvers who lead with passion and who face any task with a positive mindset.
