THE COMPANY:

Marine Layer designs and manufactures its own line of casual apparel. We have 40 of our own stores (and counting) across the country and a thriving ecommerce and catalog business.

We’ve managed to transition from a start-up into a national 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. That’s where you come in...

We are looking for a Women’s Designer to help grow and support the Design Team in the product development process.

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.

Store Managers + Store Supervisors

- BAY AREA | LA AREA | NEW YORK | CHICAGO | SEATTLE | PORTLAND | SCOTTSDALE | NASHVILLE | AUSTIN | ATLANTA | CAMBRIDGE | CHARLOTTE | DC | PHILLY | BETHESDA -
JOB DESCRIPTION:

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. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. People Development — We pride ourselves in hiring green and developing our people. Personal success stories with people development and employee retention are a must.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Operations — It would be nice if operational tasks don't send you into a frenzy of panic.
QUALIFICATIONS:

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.
