Benefits and career development
Where fresh, bold and inspiring work meets greater purpose.
We’re on a mission to use the power of beauty to bring out the possibilities that lie within each person. And, for us, that starts with our associates.We believe in the possibilities of our associates. The possibilities to dream big dreams. To be exactly who they are. To chart the course of their own career. The possibilities to imagine, to impact, and to grow. Here, we’re inspired by doing work that is shaping the world and redefining beauty & retail – one idea, one project, one relationship at a time – and we love finding people who have that same passion.
These are the beautiful possibilities at Ulta Beauty.
The Ulta Beauty difference
Ulta Beauty is so much more than meets the eye.
Here’s what we mean & how we’re doing it …
Fueling endless career opportunities
Don’t just listen to what we say. Watch what we do. We’ve created 22,000+ jobs since 2015. Promoted internally at a 70% rate, and elevated more than 6,000 women into managerial roles in the last five years. Because we do more than believe in possibilities—we realize them.
At Ulta Beauty, you’ll have diverse opportunities to follow your interests and passions, with full support from senior leadership and the associate next to you. Because we want your work experience to be compelling and rewarding and fun.
We want you to be the best you that you can be, personally and professionally.
Reimagining the future of beauty & retail
Always anticipating. Forever imagining. Never complacent. As we continue to explore the power of beauty, we lead in paving the way for what’s next. We’re investing in next-gen technologies, like AI and AR, that enhance the impact of human connection in ways that make beauty attainable and fresh for our guests. And dynamic, meaningful and challenging for our associates.
A culture of connection + inclusivity
Here, nothing is more important than people. People with uncommon passion. Contagious optimism. Grounded humility. People who radiate positivity to the world.
For us, it’s about the values & purpose we live, the connections we make, the diversity forward approach we take, and the opportunities we create. This is the fuel of our passion and performance.
Whether it’s our commitment to listening to really hear at all levels of the organization; our work that impacts lives one guest, one associate, one community at a time; or our drive to win that energizes and inspires across all levels of our company, Ulta Beauty is about a feeling of belonging for all who love, and want to express, beauty in all its dynamic forms.
Leaving a positive legacy for our world
We believe in making a positive impact on people and leaving a positive legacy for our world. From our commitment to being a diversity forward company, including a premier workplace for women, to our dedication and commitment to the communities we serve.
From giving our guests product choices and guiding their journey to making company choices that have reduced impact on the environment.
These are the things we care deeply about.
