About Us

Shine is on a mission to make wellbeing accessible—more representative, easier, and more connected than it’s ever been.

Our first product, Shine Text (covered on the TODAY show, Vogue, CNN, Glamour, Refinery29, and more), is a free daily text experience that makes it easy to notice and improve your wellbeing. And our Shine Premium in-app subscription lets you listen to self-care audio challenges to grow on the go. Our app was recently named one of the Best of 2018 by Apple. 

We have nearly 3M loyal users in 189 countries, and 99% of our members claim that Shine has had a positive impact on their lives. Plus: Research shows that increased use of Shine leads to a decrease in anxiety and depression.

Our team is awesome. Our community is incredible. Our movement is massive. And this is just the beginning.

About You:

  • You’re that idea person. Your experience in creative strategy makes you that person that everyone wants in a brainstorm because you elevate the conversation through big, innovative, and unique ideas.
  • Design-obsessed:  You’re a creator through and through. Your design skills are fire and it shows in your portfolio and / or your hobbies. You don’t just love design, you find yourself obsessively thinking about how systems like hospitals, grocery lines, puppy adoption, etc. could be more improved, streamlined processes. 
  • Passion. You’re looking to build on your experience in digital content and UX to play a major strategic role at a mission-based company that’s making wellbeing more accessible.
  • Bonus: copywriting. You love bringing a brand to life through succinct, catchy and unforgettable copy is your own form of poetry. Your copywriting skills have taken a brand campaign to the next level, and been picked up in major lifestyle outlets.
