Junior Project Manager

DEVELOPMENT - San Diego, California

 About Smashtech

We’re on a mission to disrupt the health and wellness industry by creating and maintaining full control over our own e-commerce brands and products.

We make living a healthy lifestyle simple, but how we do it is a far better story. When we say we create brands, we mean we actually dream them up and turn them into e-commerce sensations by managing everything in house. 

We do it all from research & development, manufacturing, design, branding, marketing, media, sales, and customer service, for every brand we create. It may seem like a mouthful, but we don’t want anything to slow us down, hinder our agility, or tarnish our customer experience, and the best way to do that is to do it yourself. We’re not an agency, we don’t have clients, we simply create, manage, and own everything we touch.

The world is evolving fast, and we’re in the driver’s seat. We’re one of the fastest-growing companies in San Diego, and because of our amazing culture, we’re featured by Inc. Magazine as one of the top 50 Best Workplaces in the country. And this is just the beginning.

Recent Awards:

“Happiest Company” – TINYpulse

3X “Best Workplaces” – Inc. Magazine

“Top Company Culture” – Entrepreneur Magazine

#1 rated “Top Workplace” – San Diego Union Tribune
