Web Merch Associate

- San Francisco, CA -


We’re looking for someone who loves Marine Layer and is excited to help us grow our web business. Are you a smart, organized and analytical person who works well in fast paced environments? If yes, keep reading. This job has two key roles:

Site Content Management:

You’ll play a huge role in keeping our website looking fresh. You will push new products live, organize product categories and load all website content into our ecommerce platform. You will complete monthly hindsights to figure out what is working and guide future month’s site merchandising and marketing content. You will work with our website developers to roll out new site functionality and partner with our logistics and customer service teams to ensure an easy-peasy customer experience.

Online Merchandising: 

There is a little art and science to every job, so here’s how you’ll show off your creative side: You will work closely with our merchandising team to put Marine Layer’s best foot forward on the web. Our in-store experience is vibrant, interactive, approachable and fun and we want to bring this to life on our website. In partnership with our brand and merchandising team, you will develop and execute weekly email campaigns and all website marketing content.


It bodes well for you if you are:

  • An Authentic Advocate of the Brand. 
    Big part of your role is communicating why Marine Layer is great through our website and emails, so it’s important you already believe this to your core.
  • Analytical Self-Starter.
    We are looking for someone intellectually curious that likes figuring stuff out. We are a small scrappy team so everyone needs to be accountable for their workload. We want you to tell us what’s going on, and what you are going to do about it.
  • Familiar with Ecommerce.
    We don’t need you to know how to write CSS or HTML code (although if you do, awesome!) but we do want you to be familiar with web business key performance indicators (KPIs). Maybe you’ve spent a yr or two at another ecommerce brand or you are an extremely avid online shopper, regardless, we need you to hit the ground running and already have ideas on to improve site performance.
  • Great time management skills.
    Marine Layer is a fast paced work environment and our strongest folks succeed because they are efficient and know how to prioritize their time. You’ll need to understand your shifting daily priorities and roll with it when stuff comes up. The website is always open for business (i.e. middle of the night, weekends) so you have to effectively balance your time between ongoing the demands of the web and new content launches.

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. 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.


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 your resume, a thoughtful email about how you relate to our seven-day-weekend lifestyle. Cover letters are for the birds…
