New York, NY, USA
Posted on Saturday, May 4, 2024

As a Retail Wellness Studio/Store Manager leading our very first Aescape Studio, you'll craft an unparalleled member journey and propel membership expansion as we venture into retail. You’ll be collaborating closely with Retail Senior Leadership as we aim to become the premier destination for massage therapy.

Backed by $85M in funding from investors like Valor Equity Partners (an early investor in Tesla and SpaceX), we've assembled a team of top talent across connected hardware and fitness from industry giants like Amazon, Peloton, Tonal, Uber, The New York Knicks and more to bring people and robotics together for better living.

In less than 48 hours since announcing our launch and partnership, publications like WIRED, Fast Company, Popular Science, Sports Business Journal, Fortune and Now This News have covered our news, with remarkable enthusiasm.
