About Us

MIRROR is the world's first nearly invisible home gym featuring live and on-demand fitness classes in a variety of workout genres, and 1:1 personal training. MIRROR is creating a new category of in-home fitness with cutting-edge hardware, responsive software, and best-in-class content that transforms any room into a complete home gym. For the first time, the essential components of a great studio workout--variety, personalization, and community--are brought to the most convenient place: the home.

MIRROR was founded by Harvard grad Brynn Putnam, creator of Refine Method, named "New York's Smartest Workout." We recently joined the lululemon family, operating as an independent entity, and now have the resources of a public, global company behind us. We're an inclusive space for all identities and are committed to keeping that foundation intact as we grow. If you're eager to make an impact in a quickly growing business, we want to hear more from you!


The Role & You

You are a technical person who will be the main quality contact for our factories and suppliers. You should be competent in all of the manufacturing processes required to produce our product including metal and glass fabrication, SMT manufacturing, final assembly, and you will be responsible for instilling rigor and quality into the manufacturing process. You will also advocate for the needs of the factory to the broader internal team to ensure that production attainment is met, and we have sufficient capacity for growth.

Your primary responsibilities will include:

  • Working closely with Customer Quality to identify and address manufacturing and supplier related quality issues and implement appropriate countermeasures or other ECNs.
  • Reviewing OOBA, quality loss metrics, FAT trends, and factory RCA’s and calling BS on effort and output.

You should be experienced enough in quality engineering, manufacturing, and systems thinking to step in and make an impact from day one and to support our holiday build. Even though you’re working with teams across several sites, you’re expected to forge strong relationships and to understand what is going on in each one despite not being physically present all the time.
