WHY WORK AT MEUNDIES?

It's more than a job.

We have focused on building a team of people that emulates all of our core values. We look for people who stay balanced, go further, build relationships, champion differences, and are humble. At MeUndies, we continue to maintain a stellar brand by working collaboratively and encouraging growth with learning opportunities. Not to mention, there is no such thing as a small achievement here - we celebrate it all! 

We look at the necessities.

We offer competitive equity/salary packages which include targeted annual bonuses, generous parental leave, a 401k, awesome health benefits, open time off, and more. We also take Learning and Development seriously - conducting annual performance reviews, annual 360 reviews, and providing an independent Learning & Development Budget that starts at $500 right out of the gate! 

We have an office you’ll enjoy going to.

While we’re remote until January 2021 (and have a flexible work policy beyond that), we still have an inviting office that you’re welcome to work from always! We’re set-up to support comfortable working - hot desks, lounge and casual seating areas, a Mother’s Room, an on-site gym & shower, and a kitchen that makes you feel like you’ve never left home. Plus, we’re dog friendly, so your furry coworker can join you anytime. 

We don’t forget the most important things.

We want MeUndies to be a place where you feel safe and comfortable, and encourage our employees to hold us accountable for keeping it that way. We offer two robust annual surveys to check-in with the team, an anonymous feedback tool available to submit to at any time, and an HR team that is ready to help. MeUndies is also home to four employee-led Employee Resource Groups - Womxn’s ERG, Heritage ERG, Pride ERG, and Parents of MeUndies. When you work at MeUndies, we take your needs as an employee (and a person) seriously. 

Plus those special extra things.

We know how important it is to connect with your team members outside of every day work, too. We offer frequent catered lunches, holiday parties, off-sites, happy hours, and an annual retreat (right now, these things are happening virtually! But we can’t wait to return to in-person). You’ll also get a sweet employee discount, as well as a monthly MeUndies membership to rebuild your underwear drawer with our top notch prints.

An Insider's view of MeUndies

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The MeUndies vibe is gracious. Employees take time to thank co-workers - from saying thanks for helping with a big project to washing each other’s silverware. Our “Shoutout” slack channel is always pinging with thanks and praise. I love that the team shares “thank you” moments. It’s not forced or cheesy; but authentic, genuine gratitude.

Lauren

Senior Recruiter

What projects are you most excited about?

My favorite part about working at MeUndies is that the opportunities are endless. We’ve learned that our customers are just as excited about new and innovative products as we are, and this year, the product team is ready to bring the innovation! While underwear will always be the foundation of our brand, the sky is the limit.

Britney

Merchandiser

How does the company support your career growth?

Aside from an annual learning & development budget, our team utilizes a platform called CultureAmp. It tracks everything performance based; from 30/60/90 day check-ins, continuous feedback, 360 reviews, to annual reviews and exit interviews. This is to make sure your time at MeUndies is always spent learning and growing along the way.

Bree

People Operations Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The most innovative ideas tend to come from the team when presented with high-level goals such as business outcomes to drive or problems to solve. It is often helpful for leaders to facilitate conversation by creating some structure and ensuring everyone contributes, but to increase creativity avoid being prescriptive.

Andres

COO

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The people here are fantastic. Everyone is passionate, caring humble and has a great sense of humor (that helps a lot when you’re stressed). Coming to work isn’t a chore when you work with like-minded people that care for your success & happiness.
