An Insider's view of RXBAR

What's something quirky about your company?

Working at RXBAR becomes a lifestyle. We naturally love to share what work life is like on our personal social media accounts, whether it be new product launches, the amazing view from our rooftop, team meeting events, or all the workouts employees do together, it’s a unique almost cult-like culture but something we're so proud to be a part of.


Senior Event Coordinator

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Here at RXBAR, we approach and plan everything differently. Whether it be TV, outdoor media, podcasts or paid social, we’re going against the “norm” of traditional advertising and building a new, unique approach to break through clutter they see everyday. Our goal is to woo our audience so they lean in, not annoy and inadvertently push them away.


Media Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

One of the key aspects that attracted me to RX, beyond the company's aggressive growth phase, was the Leadership Team's investment in developing its people. Individuals have the opportunity to own their development path & grow at an exceptionally fast rate in a company that promotes from within & w/o the constraint of a formal promotion structure.


Vice President of Operations

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Anyone that joins our team is quickly introduced to the idea that innovation can come from anywhere. Placing ownership on our team members that they are the product advocates while also placing ourselves in our customer shoes, has enabled leadership and creative license. It's amazing to be a part of a company that places such an importance on R&I.


Vice President of Research & Innovation

What are some things you learned at the company?

I love working at RX because the organization values me as an individual & as myself, where self-awareness is harnessed as a strength to accelerate growth. I am driven to build a new team (FP&A), training a financial muscle that empowers the organization through trust. I love the challenge of being a creator, as we question orthodoxy in finance.

Additional Perks + Benefits

Our approach to perks: While our business is growing at an exponential rate, we've maintained the nimble, no B.S. mindset that has made us the fastest-growing nutrition bar brand in the U.S. The experience at RXBAR is different from day one. Beyond the typical offering of full benefits, 401k match and generous PTO allowance, we differentiate ourselves from other CPGs in the space. Every employee spends their first two weeks in Customer Service, enabling them to interact with the incredible customers we service everyday and adapt the servant mindset that drives everything we do. Immediate impact, opportunity for growth, educational opportunities, mentorship, creative thinking, diversity, exposure to senior leaders - these are all realities at RXBAR, not just buzz words. With our open-office format and pursuit of excellence, we foster an environment that supports personal and professional growth. To support the needs of our growing business, we've implemented "dynamic job descriptions" as individual's roles are constantly evolving, allowing them to take on added responsibility and new challenges.

Cell phone reimbursement, gym membership reimbursement, bike & helmet reimbursement and unlimited RXBAR's are a few of the extras you'll receive when working here.
