Cooler Screens was founded on the core idea that consumers deserve a far better experience than what is available today in bricks-and-mortar retail. We call this concept “CX” and it guides all that we do. We have begun the CX journey by bringing what consumers love about shopping on-line to the frozen and refrigerated food aisle. 

 

Cooler Screens is re-imagining the business of brick-and-mortar retail for retailers and brands.  We are transforming retail cooler surfaces into IoT enabled screens that deliver new marketing opportunities and smart merchandising for the ultimate shopper experience. Cooler Screens is building the world’s first and largest in-store digital media and edge computing platform at the retail point-of-sale. 

  

Cooler Screens is powered by proprietary innovation and a global network of industry-leading partners.  Global technology, CPG, and retail leaders have partnered with Cooler Screens to be part of this important and rapidly growing industry initiative.   We are backed and led by some of the most prominent Silicon Valley and Chicago leaders, advisers, and investors.

 

As Cooler Screens' Retail Project Manager, you will lead the day-to-day communications with our high-profile retail partners, ensuring that information is efficiently relayed to and from our internal cross-functional team.

You will serve as the key point-of-contact for our retail partners and are responsible for maintaining collaborative and productive relationships.
