About Core
At Core, we believe in taking an active and intentional approach to building your inner strength. Our first product, the Core meditation trainer, launched January 6th, and won a 2020 CES Innovation Award. It is the most immersive meditation experience: combining an app, a handheld device, biofeedback and fresh, updated content from our new Core Studio in downtown San Francisco. Our product is quickly selling out, and our beta organically attracted engagements with a Grammy-winning artist, NFL and PGA Tour athletes, Lululemon, Saks 5th Ave, and more. 

Founded in 2016, Core is backed by Spero Venture Capital, Corigin, Bose Corporation, Stanford-StartX, and Bullish. As we begin shipping this product to more customers, we need a Manufacturing Operations expert to help us build the most robust, reliable, and cost-efficient experience possible. This position is a full-time role in our headquarters at South Park in San Francisco.
