Careers - Manager, QA Engineering

THE COMPANY

Since 1938, new parents in Finland have been sent home from the hospital with one unique, yet simple gift: A cardboard box.

Combined with pre-natal and post-natal care and education, the boxes are credited with drastically reducing infant mortality. The Baby Box Co. is an innovative educational program equipping parents with resources to give their babies a safe start in life.

  • The baby box was invented in Finland which has one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the world.
  • Starting as an e-commerce business, The Baby Box Co. has evolved to wholesale and are now reimagining themselves as a free online education platform for parents, Baby Box University.
