SHEfinds Media is a network of websites (SHEfinds.com, BRIDEfinds.com and MOMfinds.com) that help women shop online.

Our management team is small but very experienced - this is a great place to learn from professionals who have worked in fashion, editorial and marketing departments at major companies like Hearst, Conde Nast, New York Magazine, CBS, AOL and Ask.com (IAC). Now is an exciting time to join the team as we are looking for fresh ideas and enthusiasm as we ramp up our editorial and are in the process of a redesign.
