Shiseido – Why Work With Us?

Shiseido Americas Corporation is a subsidiary of Tokyo-based Shiseido Company, Limited, a leading global beauty company. Led by President and CEO Marc Rey, our portfolio of prestige beauty brands includes: Shiseido, NARS, Clé de Peau Beauté, bareMinerals, BUXOM, Laura Mercier and several prestige fragrance brands including Issey Miyake, and Narciso Rodriguez. Shiseido Americas is headquartered in New York City and employs more than 5,000 individuals in the United States, Canada, and throughout Latin America. In early 2017, Shiseido Americas acquired technology companies MatchCo and Giaran and JWALK, a creative agency.


                                 Shiseido Americas is focused firmly on the future of beauty, fully embracing the entrepreneurial, pioneering spirit that has long defined our region.

An organizational leader in technological innovation and creative development, our essence lives in our people, connected by the rich tapestry of human diversity that has always been the heart of our company. Shiseido Group’s cultural crossroads meet in the Americas and we draw daily upon the variety of skills, experiences and perspectives of our fellow employees.

As the home of the Digital Center of Excellence, we operate on the front lines of the technological revolution that has re-ignited the world of beauty, paving the way for Shiseido Group to emerge as the industry’s most digitally advanced company.

As Shiseido Group’s global center for makeup development, we consider makeup creation to be an art form, a discipline unto itself, wherein our brands create the vast, ever-evolving pallet of colors by which a new generation of consumers can express their true selves.

For us, the future of beauty lies not just in brick and mortar or even in digital and social, but in the convergence of science and soul, and at the summit of art and authenticity.

President's vision
Heading for the future Shiseido and the next 100 years

With “to inspire a life of beauty and culture” as Our Mission, we at Shiseido will aspire to sustainably enhance corporate value by continuously contributing to the happiness of people who wish to lead their lives in the way they like. To meet this goal, in December 2014, we announced our medium-to-long term strategy, VISION 2020.

To fulfill VISION 2020, Shiseido must first acknowledge the fact that it has not fully leveraged either its tangible or intangible assets—such as the technical expertise cultivated to date, the ability to deploy business globally, and human resources—and dramatically restructure its entire range of activities from a “consumer-focused viewpoint.”

Furthermore, we will put marketing into practice through the concerted efforts of the entire workforce, and continue to propose new values to the world through innovation thanks to revolutionary technological development, thereby making our brands, which stand for crucial bonds with our consumers, shine even more brightly than before. At the same time, we will exist in harmony with the environment and society as part of our endeavor to contribute to making a sustainable society a reality.

Based on this philosophy, making a prototype of Shiseido that will be thriving 100 years from now is the mission that I must accomplish.

By 2020, I will transform Shiseido into:

a company filled with energy;
a company overflowing with youthful spirit;
a company always much talked about;
a company inspiring to, and admired by, younger generations; and
a company driven forth by diverse cultures.

I will make Shiseido into a company that is supported and needed by consumers and societies not only in Japan and Asia, but also in the rest of the world.

Our motto is “Rejuvenate, Shiseido”.
Let us move forward with each consumer to build the future of Shiseido, and let us generate new values as professionals who inspire a life of beauty and culture. With these above objectives in mind, the entire workforce has begun moving as one.
Let me encourage you to place high expectations on Shiseido, which will undergo a major change.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Shiseido (New York, NY) in May 2017.


    My interview process with Shiseido was seamless. I met with the hiring manager, hr partner and department head. They all seemed to have a passion for the brands in the portfolio which I appreciated. They all asked me thought provoking questions and also took time to give me texture around Shiseido which was helpful. I felt looped into the process and ended up joining, it has been great ever since :)
