PRODUCT MANAGER

ABOUT TRIBE

​​

Our mission is to provide everyone in Europe with instant access to eyecare. We believe that buying glasses should be as easy as buying clothes but as safe as going to the doctor.

Therefore, we are building the world’s fastest and most reliable way to buy prescription glasses with nothing but your smartphone. We are literally putting the optician in your pocket so you can order a new pair of glasses from wherever you are.

Our mobile app helps customers find a frame that truly fits their face and style, offers realistic virtual try-ons and easy sharing with loved ones, and lets them update their lens prescriptions whenever needed.

Tribe has recently been acquired by Mister Spex, Europe’s largest online optician. As such, your work has the chance to directly impact the lives of millions of people.
