Senior Project Manager

Posted 4.16.24
San Francisco, CA


OLLY is a fast-growing company working to bring simplicity and delight to the world of nutrition. Yes, stuff like vitamins and probiotics. We see only upside in the opportunity to transform the category experience. Not only that, we believe you can’t have happy without healthy. And isn’t true happiness where it’s at? So we’ve made it our personal mission to help people make healthy choices by making it easier than ever for them to get better nutrition into their daily lives. We’re super passionate about the work that we do and we’re on the hunt for a fellow self-starter to join our ambitious bunch.

We hope you’ll indulge us as we toot our own horn a little. We currently have over 40 products sold nationwide at retailers including Target, CVS, Safeway, Whole Foods, Walmart and many more. We got off to a fast start and have already been recognized as a successful, transformational brand in both the supplement and nutrition categories. As you can imagine we need more rock stars to help us continue the pace as we have high hopes for our future.

OK, one last tidbit or two – in 2019 we joined our friends over at Unilever to help us grow OLLY into a global brand. We are also a B-Corp, so doing social good is built into our DNA and we’re headquartered in the heart of San Francisco with a culture that reflects the friendly, optimistic and health-minded values of the brand. Our goal is to build a uniquely special company and brand that will make us all proud! 


You are welcome at OLLY for who you are, no matter where you come from, what you look like, or what healthy means to you. Our products are for everyone, and so is our workplace. The more voices we have represented and amplified in our business, the more we will all thrive, contribute, and shine. So bring us your personal experience, your perspectives, and your background. It’s in our differences that we will find our inspiration to help people be happy from the inside out.
