  • 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. 

    This individual will be responsible for providing outstanding customer support from initial inquiry through the post-purchase experience while representing Core’s brand and communicating our story, values and voice. It is a unique opportunity to experience and learn multiple facets of our business from shipping and logistics to product design and meditation creation. This is a crucial role that creates a vital frontline connection to our customer through social, email and live chat. If you love to make people happy, problem solve, go above and beyond, and have a love of learning and adapting to change then we’d love to hear from you!
