Job Description

About Our Company:

We are an e-commerce fashion company focused on niche markets. Founded by young industry leaders, we identify opportunistic markets to launch trend setting products and brands.

We believe that with wide scale changes to the retail landscape and to an increasing spending power of millennials as they join the work force, we want to build a company culture that is aware of the issues and social conversations taking place today. This fundamental understanding of younger generations is a core part of how we develop high product/market fit brands.

We are approaching the end stage of our development cycle and are ready to bring our products to market and need someone with fashion sourcing experience to assist our execution phase.

About you:

As part of this small team, we are looking for like-minded individuals that are more interested in building a great company rather than simply working in one. We have taken considerable personal risks in stepping out to create our own business and believe that the successful candidate is similarly willing to risk and have a razor-sharp focus on our success to help us execute our vision.

You will be exposed to the entire process of developing e-commerce brands from the ground up, from idea inception all the way down to after sales customer support. For this reason, we believe that it is extremely important that the right candidate be willing to stay with our company in the long term (2+ years), help develop its culture and its products, and see through the projects they have started to completion.

Suitable candidates should also not be shy with regards to issues such as: LGBTQ topics, environmental protections, women's rights, and other social issues as they are a core part of how we create brands that millennials can identify with.

We expect you to participate in forming and upholding our values as we continue to grow.

What the job requires:

  • Oversee all fabric related production issues, in terms of quality assurances and timely deliveries

  • Provide technical support and risk assessment to designers to ensure consistent customer experience and minimize potential product related issues

  • Documenting and recording all sourcing related purchases, issues, and problem resolutions

  • Liaising between third party manufacturers to ensure timely delivery of products and quality assurance

  • Technical familiarity with woven textiles knowledge, certification, and testing

  • Development of KPIs and other quality programs with textile mills in regards of color, wash-fastness, and wear and tear damage over time

  • Bachelor degree or equivalent in fashion related fields

  • 2+ years of sourcing experiences

  • Strong command of Mandarin, Cantonese, and English

  • Frequent trips to China and other sourcing markets is necessary, strong network and familiarity with Chinese fabric markets is a plus

  • Keen aesthetic eye

  • Can work independently with minimal supervision

  • An interest in entrepreneurship and management KPIs

  • Assist with warehousing duties in packing, labelling, and sending customer orders as well as other ad-hoc jobs

Candidates with experience working in startup environments, e-commerce platforms, or other entrepreneurial experience but do not fit the exact description are encouraged to apply.

Job Perks:

  • 5 Day work week

  • 14 days of starting annual leave

  • Medical allowance for doctor’s visits

  • Transportation subsidies

  • Double pay

  • Year end discretionary bonus

  • Strong career prospects
