Chief Executive Officer

Dorai Home is looking for a Chief Executive Officer with leadership experience in consumer goods and e-commerce who will drive operations and marketing strategies in our fast-growing company.  The ideal CEO will be an omnichannel marketing leader with startup experience who is ready to oversee and help manage our strategy, vision, and growth as the company enters into new markets.

Dorai Home is adding products, expanding marketing channels, growing its team, and scaling operations in 2022. The CEO will play a hands-on role in the company’s goal of becoming a $100M brand in the next 3-5 years and will be motivated by owning a stake in that success. 

About the company: Dorai Home is a rapidly growing D2C brand that creates thoughtfully designed housewares made of eco-friendly materials that dry instantly. Dorai was started in 2018 by two founders with operational expertise that has enabled 300% YOY growth.

Our other founder has  a marketing and design background and established the foundational brand strategy. She is stepping back into an advisor role as we’ve recently grown our brand and marketing team.
