What on earth is DECIEM?
DECIEM is a humble and happy umbrella of good beauty brands. We're founded on the principle of doing everything others don't do and we are changing the world of beauty based on this principle. We have more than 10 brands in the beauty world and operate a growing portfolio of more than 300 products in more than 15 markets. We are growing very rapidly and want to do things no one has ever done before. We have been called every good and bad thing you can imagine like “The Hottest Beauty Company Right Now”, “The Most Thrilling Thing to Happen in Skincare” and “Canada’s Next MAC Cosmetics”. We have a very good team and we are growing so quickly that we have lost count. Most of us are doing what we have never done before and have become experts by doing (except for our boring chemists and finance guys who have done the same thing for many decades!). All you need is #deciem and you will understand. We are growing very rapidly and need someone who shares this vision and wants to grow with us!
