Jobs at MOO
Founder & CEO
Richard is our Founder & CEO – a job that’s kept him rather busy over the past nine years.
After working as an Advertising Executive at Sorted, a dotcom startup, and for a design company as a Strategic Planner, Richard developed a keen eye for what he calls “remarkable consumer products” - things that people actually love to own.
A lover of all kinds of art – Richard’s passion for design is perhaps rivalled only by his love for music. With design close to his heart, it should come as no surprise that he lists attention to detail, a drive for perfection, and innovation as pillars to his own (and MOO’s) success.
Since MOO’s launch in 2004, Richard’s name has appeared on a number of “influential people” lists, including The Daily Telegraph's '100 Most Influential People in Technology', Digital Media's 'Top 10 most influential people', and Wired Magazine's 'Wired 100.' But we’re sure that won’t be the last you hear of him.
Richard admits to having made "every mistake in the book" during MOO's early years. He seems to have got the hang of it now, though.
Chief Marketing Officer
Nobody at MOO can claim that they’re in the Baseball Hall of Fame – except Stephanie Shore. Turns out that when you make a brilliant print marketing campaign (in this case a rally card in the run up to the Boston Red Sox winning the World Series), it gets displayed somewhere way fancier than a fridge door!
This was just one in a long line of wins for our CMO. Her previous experience includes leading brand strategy, creative and marketing for a variety of companies from start-up to established. She even got to “ring the bell” when Zipcar went public (even if she DID accidentally do an excited dance the entire time!)
So, why MOO? “I find it so thrilling to work on a brand that I love, and watch it flourish. That’s the sweet spot. And I’ve always had amazing teams” she smiles, “Because nobody can make magic happen alone”.
When she’s not helping MOO grow its brand and business, Stephanie likes running – either after her toddler, or away from the kitchen! “I don’t mean to brag, but I think I might be the worst cook in the world. People come to my house and ask for “one of my famous waters” as it’s the only thing I don’t burn”.

When you walk in the door to MOO’s Boston headquarters, you’re met with a bright, welcoming seating area.
There’s never a lack of MOO product samples—like business cards, postcards and stickers—all carefully displayed in their reception area.
In keeping with the friendliness of the MOO brand, the divider between the 2nd floor open office space and the entrance is a floor to ceiling, “Hello.”
The MOOsters (as they’re called) enjoy a vibrant open office environment with connected desks on the bottom floor of their two-floor office located just steps from South Station.
Both floors of MOO’s Kingston Street office are filled with a mix of open space, informal meeting areas and conference rooms.
Not surprisingly for a print company, the conference rooms are each named after a famous typeface.
As MOO is a fast-growing company, they have recently doubled their space, expanding to the floor above their original office space. This airy, bright kitchen welcomes you as you enter the third floor.
The new floor has a comfortable mix of cafe tables and soft seating with sunny conference rooms surrounding its perimeter.
The imperfections of the original warehouse floors compliment the mid century-inspired, super modern decor.
Clusters of stylish, comfy seating facilitate organic and informal meetings between the MOO employees.
The largest conference room, Mrs. Eaves, seats up to twenty and allows for regular communication between groups in Boston and the London HQ office.
If you work for MOO, you enjoy a healthy dose of fun(and snacks), with a ping pong table, happy hours, celebrations and regular outings.
The folks at MOO Boston know how to work as hard as they play, as it is home to robust marketing and creative and analytics departments serving all of the US — their largest global market.
