What we are looking for:

  • Highly organized with demonstrated attention to detail
  • Passion for sneakers and sneaker industry is a huge plus
  • A proven decision maker who develops an internal process and adheres to it
  • A quick learner, a self-starter, able to work independently, and you're willing (and able) to handle the pressures of an increasing level of responsibility
