- San Francisco, CA -
Marine Layer is a San Francisco based premium casual apparel brand. We sell through our website and our retail stores across the U.S of A. We are a fast-growing company whose Marine Layer locally designs and manufactures its own line of casual apparel. We have 22 doors (and counting) across the country and a robust ecommerce and catalog business. Our success has been built on a small, passionate team that works hard, has a lot of fun and passionately believes in what we are building. We’ve managed to transition from a start-up into a nationally renown brand by staying true to our roots and thoughtfully expanding the team with some incredibly talented (and fun) people who want to help us build something special.
We are looking for someone who is really excited about our brand and connects with our product. This is not a typical production position because we are not a typical company. While helping create product, testing fabrics, maintaining sample libraries, managing vendors, etc, are all very important, we primarily want someone who is personable, self-motivated and 110% committed to the success of our team and the brand as a whole. You'll need to be comfortable lifting and transporting heavy boxes to and from our factory (we'll provide a car, but you need to drive it). We need someone who is highly organized, great with Excel, scheduling daily shipments and working well with cross-functional teams like sourcing, technical design, and merchandising.
We are looking for someone who is excited to work closely with a team that has a lot of fun and is very passionate about making Marine Layer product something special. We'd love for you to speak Mandarin, but it's not a requirement. You gotta be able to adapt to the ever changing needs of the product team and open to rolling up your sleeves and get the job done.
Please have a look at our website (www.marinelayer.com) and then shoot KK@marinelayer.com and email@example.com your resume, a thoughtful email about why you'd be a great match.
Partnerships & Content Marketing Manager
- San Francisco, CA -
Since starting our business we’ve kept our heads down, focusing on building a great brand and making awesome product (mostly because those things were quite difficult). Meanwhile, we haven’t done a great job of creating awareness and marketing around the brand we’ve built. That’s where you come in…
We’re looking for a smart, organized and opportunistic person who can help us create and execute some new marketing initiatives largely based around one of the things we do really, really well, which is make great t-shirts. Specifically,
Developing Brand Partnerships
We make awesome shirts, now it’s time to get them into new hands. Explore strategic brand & influencer partnerships that bode well for ML’s exposure and growth. You will also manage all accounts for our custom print shop where we will do limited runs of graphic T’s. There’s a lot of creative opportunity here that we’re excited to explore.
Generate Great Content
Create brand positive content from our partnerships that we’ll share in our catalog, social & ecommerce channels. You will be responsible for developing and executing campaigns that drive growth in brand awareness & social following.
From start to finish, you’ll be responsible for setting up and managing these successful partnerships & marketing campaigns. You’ll also need to manage cross-functional relationships within Marine Layer, specifically working with our brand and design teams regularly.
It bodes well if you are:
An Authentic Brand Advocate: You should know the brand, like the brand, and be able to represent us in an authentic way.
An Excellent Networker: Do you enjoy meeting new people? Are you direct and persistent, without being annoying? We need someone who is all of these things. Or at least close…
Strategic & Creative: You’ll need to think outside the box on all partnership & marketing opportunities there are to be had, then create a strategic plan for execution.
A Fantastic Project Manager: You need to be organized, self-motivated and accountable. The successful candidate for this position will be able to ensure that they can handle a variety of disparate tasks and accounts on a daily basis in a fast-paced environment.
Scrappy: We are a very lean organization and we’re going from a marketing department of zero to a marketing department of one. This is a great opportunity and also a great burden. The right person probably sees more opportunity than burden…

Store Managers + Store Supervisors
- Malibu + San Luis Obispo + Palo Alto + Berkeley, CA | Portland, OR | Boulder, CO | Austin + Dallas, TX -
We're looking for someone pretty special to help us slang a few tees and get the word out about Marine Layer at our new stores. This is not a typical retail position because we are not a typical company. This is not a typical retail position because we are not a typical company. While selling shirts and maintaining the store are both very important, we primarily want someone who is personable, self-motivated and 110% committed to the success of their store and the brand as a whole.
As you can imagine, opening a store in a new market is an exciting challenge for any Store Manager and Store Supervisor. We need someone who can represent our lifestyle and company culture from hundreds of miles away. While we will (of course) be involved in branding, merchandising, events and training, it is very important for you to be an independent self starter.
In addition to finding someone who can kick ass and lead from afar, we are looking for a Store Manager + Store Supervisor who has experience in the following areas:
- Customer Experience — We want people to walk out of our stores excited about our brand. You should be (pretty) funny, (very) charismatic and be one hell of a host(ess) of the party.
- People Development — We pride ourselves in hiring green and developing our people. Personal success stories with people development and employee retention are a must.
- Leadership — We want someone who is passionate about keeping a team happy, engaged and challenged. There's a difference between managing a team and leading a team.
- Merchandising — Our product needs to look good and sell well in our stores. It's important for you to have a keen eye for merchandising and visual standards.
- Operations — It would be nice if operational tasks don't send you into a frenzy of panic.
Desire to work in a start‐up (ish) environment: A lot of people say they want to work at a start-up; not as many people really know what that means. Here it means we all work very hard, we believe deeply in the future of this company, and we all do a lotta bit of everything.
Success in a Retail Management Role: The size of your previous company and the product category you've worked in are not important to us. If you're a good manager with leadership skills and a positive attitude, you can succeed here.
Cultural Fit: This is a close-knit group that gets along extremely well. We all work hard, but manage to have a lot of fun along the way. We're all working towards the same goal of making Marine Layer something special and if you are on board for that (and don't have a stick up your butt) you'll fit in really well.
Please have a look at our website and then shoot firstname.lastname@example.org your resume, a thoughtful email about how you relate to our seven-day-weekend lifestyle. Cover letters are for the birds…
