Ripen eCommerce

We’re hiring. Join the team!

Do you have a well-honed vision of the ecommerce industry and a mastery of best practices?
We’re looking to hire the very best professional talent, forming an A-Team of true innovators at every level who will produce impressive client work together, while spearheading a complete Ripen rebrand.

Here’s why you’ll love working at Ripen.

1
We’re an ecommerce agency headquartered in the top-ranked town of Princeton, NJ. Our perfect positioning between Philadelphia and New York City gives us access to coveted clients and endless new opportunities.
2
We execute work that builds brands, thanks to our passion for ecommerce and our omni-channel perspective. Our Creative, Marketing and Development teams are enhanced by a Technology department, giving us an edge in the digital space and ensuring our work is data-driven and forward-thinking.
3
The Ripen office is rooted in a collaborative spirit, bursting with creative energy and guided by a laser-sharp view of the future. We’re busy—and getting busier—but we maintain reasonable working hours and a culture of happiness. From free organic snacks to sponsored team events, we believe in taking care of our employees.

Benefits, Perks, & Company Culture

Keeping employees happy, healthy, and well-balanced is important to us—
and we offer many ways to achieve that goal.

Competitive Salary, Annual Increase & Year-End Bonus

We want exceptional talent, and we are willing to pay for it! Go above and beyond, and you will receive yearly salary increases based on performance, as well as a generous annual bonus.

401(k) + Matching Program

To help employees plan for retirement, Ripen hosts personal finance workshops. We also provide a 401(k) savings plan with a dollar-for- dollar matching contribution for the 3% of pay deferred and 50% matching up to 5% of pay deferred.

Health & Dental Insurance + Rx Coverage

We provide multiple health plans to choose from. Ripen contributes a generous portion to your monthly premiums.

Additional Paid Time Off

In addition to vacation and sick time, we give you paid time off to volunteer for a cause you support. And don’t forget to celebrate YOU with a birthday holiday. Parents don’t have to worry if the kids have a random day off from school. We’ll make that work for you.

State-of-the-Art Office & Photo Studio

We recently moved into a newly constructed Class-A office building in Princeton — featuring high ceilings, oversized windows, and huge private offices. An open floor plan and a variety of spaces, including quiet breakout rooms and a lounge, allow for efficient, adaptable collaboration. An in-house, fully equipped photo studio gives us total control over the creative photography and video work we produce for our clients. Don’t forget our kitchen and gaming area— a classic agency perk we just had to have.

Committees

With the new space comes new ways we can bring the team together. We’ll be kicking off employee committees, including a Green Committee, Creative Committee and We Give Back Committee. As the names imply, we want to empower our team to reduce waste, enjoy fun creative outlets, and dedicate time to those in need. We encourage all to join and lead these teams, while pursuing your own passion projects! New ideas are always welcome.

True Work-Life Balance

Life isn’t JUST about working. Although we love that our team enjoys putting in the hours needed to create top-notch client work, we also believe that a balanced life is the best life. It’s important to us that our employees have time for their families. Weekend and late night hours are the rarity around here, not the norm … unless there’s a blue moon, and then you’re expected to observe the event over wine and yoga. Just kidding. Well, not really. At our new office, there will be regular yoga classes.

Ripen–Sponsored Events

We work hard at Ripen, so it’s important that we make time for a little play, too. We host quarterly social events, regular company lunches, Monday morning breakfasts, and Thursday night happy hours. And we don’t skimp on our yearly holiday party. Planned events like these give team members the chance to connect on a different level while getting to know each other as friends.

Fresh, Healthy Snacks Prepared Daily

We mean it when we say we’re invested in the health and happiness of our employees. We serve fresh snacks every day, and we’re not talkin’ pastries and pizza. You can look forward to healthy options like fresh-squeezed orange juice, 3pm smoothies, fruit, vegetables, and gourmet hors d’oeuvres.

Wellness Program

We’ve built strong relationships with world-renowned yoga instructors to provide Ripen employees with regular group classes at all experience levels. We’ve also piloted holistic nutrition and meditation workshops that we’ll continue to host in the new space, tailored to our employees’ specific needs and interests. Additional wellness initiatives include cooking demonstrations, massage therapy appointments, and, coming soon, whatever your little heart desires. We’re open to suggestions and are happy to implement new workshops at the request of our team members.
