Who we are

Recharge is the leader in powering physical subscriptions, making it one of the most important ecommerce engines. Recharge powers over 50M subscriptions worldwide and has processed more than 10B in transactions. More than 15K brands such as Verve Coffee Roasters, Bokksu, Who Gives A Crap, Geologie, Bite Toothpaste Bits and The Sill rely on Recharge daily to grow their businesses and delight their customers.

Recharge’s mission is to enable brands and merchants to form strong, lasting relationships with their customers through recurring purchases. As merchants seek ways to drive more direct sales and distribution through their channels and move away from a reliance on traditional online marketing strategies, Recharge has made it possible to grow businesses with seamless, recurring customer transactions.

An Insider's view of Recharge

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Recharge was built remote-first, which means they employ colleagues from across the globe. They are cognizant that our work is where our life is, and they honor the work-life balance in every aspect. From stipends to unlimited PTO, the Recharge leadership team believes in stepping away from your desk and enjoying your life outside of the workplace.

What projects are you most excited about?

As a field marketing leader, I’m energized by developing new strategies that lead to bottom line revenue. Coming to Recharge was a breath of fresh air in many ways, but a big benefit for me was the opportunity to build an in-market event & activity strategy from scratch. It’s amazing to work for a company who is “all-in” on investing in this!
