From Matt Handy, VP of Marketing

I know what you're thinking. Perhaps the Orthodontics or even 3D Printing industry isn't what you were looking for. If I am being honest, that's what I initially thought. But the more I learned about the Orthodontic space, the more I started to see the exciting and massive opportunity. Imagine an industry that hasn't changed in 50 years. This space is old, slow, and ripe for a team of creative marketers to do something BIG.

We have a very real and rare opportunity to truly build a brand from the ground up and disrupt an industry. There aren't many startups in Boston that can honestly say that.

From a marketing perspective, we're starting from scratch. We're going to be revamping the brand, building our own creative marketing playbook (nothing is off limits), and we have the budget, runway and senior support to make it happen. We're now looking for a marketing Co-op team member to join our band of pirates and build something meaningful. This position will have exposure to all marketing efforts. Apply if you have off-the-chart hustle, an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for juggling a lot of projects at once beautifully and gracefully.
