Converse Senior Manager Global Merchandising Operations

Converse Senior Manager Global Merchandising Operations

Boston | Massachusetts | United States

Converse is the story of a sneaker that started on the court and moved to the stage and street. We're a company ready for change and that's who we hire: the most malleable, the most innovative, and the most creative. Our clothes and sneakers have been worn by rebels, rockers, rappers, artists, thinkers, and individuals. So that's why we hire individuals. So we're speaking the same language.

Be a Product of Rad Society

We've got the goods. We just need the people who believe in the goods. That's you. You see the product in the space. And you get how to make it leave the space. In someone's bag, on someone's feet. You're a trendwatcher. A callmaker. Maybe even a visionary. You throw Product and Retail into a blender and make it come out as smooth delicious Success.
