This Fashion Company Sends One Employee a Month on a Surprise Trip
Want to work for a company that’s breaking ground in the fashion world and has been covered by publications like The New York Times, Fast Company, AdWeek, Wired, and Rolling Stone in recent months? Look no further than San Francisco-based Betabrand.
Betabrand is a crowdfunding community for fashion where creatives around the world help with every aspect of each fashion line: They aid in clothing design, help put on photoshoots, and determine which products become the next big thing on the web. To keep up with the non-stop demand, Betabrand is an all-hands-on-deck operation where every team member, regardless of title, is helping with every aspect of the process in some form or another.
Betabrand’s employees are constantly working together to create one hit after another, and their passion is evident in the work they do. “What gets me excited about my future at Betabrand is that I get to be part of a thriving community that is going to take crowdsourcing mainstream,” says Think Tank Director Liz Rossof.
Given the creative vibe of the company, it’s unsurprising that Betabrand’s offices are designed like big, open workshops and located in one of the trendiest parts of the Bay Area. “A unique company perk here is daily access to San Francisco’s Mission district, where you’re surrounded by small local businesses and fun and lively characters,” says Production Manager Faithy Leong.
And one very unique perk of Betabrand? The team sends one employee on a surprise, all-expense paid adventure trip every month. What’s not to love about working in fashion and jetsetting around the world in your spare time?
