The Grommet Company Overview

The Grommet is the place to discover innovative products by Makers and small businesses and learn the stories behind each one. We launch intriguing new products that have been carefully selected by our team.
 
Our goal is to improve how the public learns about innovative consumer products and to help the best ones win. We’re changing the status quo, letting everyday people determine which products succeed rather than letting a few big retailers (e.g., Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Toys “R” Us, Walmart,) set the entire retail landscape.
 
We’re also changing the way people buy (both online and in brick and mortar stores) by helping them find products that align with their personal values so they can support principles with their purchases.
 
We discover unique products from around the world, vetting each one to ensure the business behind it is trustworthy. We get the story behind the business and provide our audience the full picture of each product, via a written story, video, and/or photography.

The Grommet’s headquarters are located in Somerville, Massachusetts outside of Davis Square. As part of making its new headquarters a home, The Grommet brought in multiple galleries of the products it has launched, workstations made of shipping pallets (like those used to ship the kinds of products we sell), antiques, and tools and technologies from various eras of manufacturing.

With a dynamic and lively work environment, The Grommet offers a culture of collaboration, mentorship, and learning, with exposure to the startup industry in Boston and an opportunity to learn through frequent information and expertise sharing, event-attendance, and presentations by our team members.

If you hate the idea of a dynamic workplace, a vibrant company culture, and fun, you'll hate The Grommet, but I digress. I wanted to work at The Grommet because it seemed like an opportunity where I would enjoy the work I did and meet people I would thoroughly enjoy working with. I was right. It's been a personal and professional jackpot.

I really care about The Grommet’s mission to put an end to faceless business and highlight the people behind the products. I love what I do. Every day I get to be creative and work with things I like the most: colors, layouts, typography, and beautiful imagery taken by our in-house photography team.
