Girlboss is a community of ambitious women and your navigator for the future of work. We’re here to spark the thrill of possibility, to inspire and inform, so that you can find success on your terms.
As a modern media brand, Girlboss creates engaging, resonant content for our audience of 2M+ across multiple channels. These include our website, where we post long-reads, how-tos and profiles, and Girlboss Daily, our must-read morning newsletter. Girlboss Radio is our iconic podcast, which brings listeners career advice they can actually use, via conversations between new host, Avery Francis, and an impressive roster of guests. We also engage our community through Girlboss Goods, a marketplace of products by women-founded small businesses as well and Girlboss Jobs, a job board of dream postings to help our community level up.
We believe in transparency and feedback, taking extreme ownership, being positive problem solvers, infinite learners, under-promising and over-delivering and having fun along the way.
Girlboss is powered by a small and mighty fully remote global team.
