The Big Picture

Do you enjoy working with a team to achieve big goals? Are you looking for an opportunity to run marketing campaigns from end to end? At Zoobean, you will have the opportunity to do meaningful work that has a huge impact on our business and helps bring our products to more readers worldwide.

You will play a large role in ideating, planning, and project managing a broad array of marketing initiatives. At the same time, we may ask you to contribute in new and unexpected ways as we grow and learn. And we hope you’ll push us in new directions too!

About Us

Zoobean’s flagship products help people achieve reading goals by tracking reading and participating in reading challenges. We serve over 7,000 public library and school clients in the United States, Canada, and Australia. Over three million readers currently use our platform, Beanstack, to track their reading, earn incentives, and stay motivated to read.

Our Shark Tank appearance brought us Mark Cuban as an investor. We have since picked up Kapor Capital, Militello Capital, AlphaLab Gear, RevUp Capital, and the AT&T Aspire Accelerator as believers and backers to our wonderful cause. Our customers range from big to small and include Los Angeles Public Library, Hawaii Department of Education, and the Department of Defense.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We believe diversity breeds innovation.

We are actively looking to add members to our team who will bring diverse backgrounds, new perspectives, and a willingness to challenge us to improve the work we do every day.

From the Heart

At Zoobean, we live out three core values that are represented in our logo:

  • Love: We are passionate about the work we do and give everything we can to our customers, investors, and each other.
  • Inclusion: Our company grew out of a calling to help children and families see themselves in the books they read. That same commitment to diversity runs through all we do and gives each of us an opportunity to express our full selves while feeling a sense of belonging to a larger community.
  • Awesomeness: This one speaks for itself.

If this hits you in the heart and mind, then come work with us.
