The ideal candidate will have an impressive portfolio that displays unique and engaging conceptual thinking and design.  Additionally, we're looking for someone with an awareness of companies who are innovating in the digital/e-commerce space (think Glossier and Everlane). If you're the savviest one in your circle when it comes to discovering the newest cutting-edge brands and experiences (i.e. you knew about the Ice Cream museum and slept on a Casper mattress before everyone else), let's chat.
