about us:

unspun is a fashion technology company building custom jeans for each consumer, on-demand. Our sustainability mission is to reduce global carbon emissions by 1% through our innovations, and make the best fitting jeans while doing it. We are a supportive and open-minded team that is not afraid to push boundaries in the fashion industry.

As a production associate at unspun, you will be working with the product team on production and customer experience. We will support and teach you everything you need to know about our processes to get you there. You will learn the ins and outs of a fashion company.

  • You will be involved in the key aspects of unspun production process by:
    • helping with shipping, quality checks, and production organization
    • being our point person on customer communication if anyone needs an alteration
    • learning new forms of digital pattern making based off of body scans
    • helping to creating custom-fit patterns for each customer using our technology

A typical day might look like: troubleshooting with a customer that wants an alteration, making technical patterns for our customers using our software, meeting with our product and software teams to align on any issues or goals for the upcoming days, shipping out orders that have arrived from our factory.

about you:

You love working with people. You want this world to be a better place, and want to bring others along for the ride. You are intrigued by new technologies and enjoy tweaking things until they are just right. You are driven, when you notice something that needs to be done, you are not afraid to jump to the task. You are open minded, patient, a fast learner, and have extreme attention to detail.

you probably have:

  • a bachelor’s degree related to fashion, customer experience, or operations (but we are open to others, or a handful of years of experience instead)
  • some experience with pattern making and/or product development
  • a good sense of urgency and time management skills
  • some familiarity with textile and garment production steps
  • desire to make an impact on innovation, fashion, and sustainability
  • retail experience of any kind

our philosophy:

We won’t roll our eyes if your socks don’t match. We get it. But then, if you spend those extra few minutes in the morning matching your socks and shirt, we get that too. Our workspaces are sometimes spotless and sometimes chaotic, and we celebrate messy exploration. We work through complex problems but generate simple and elegant solutions. We strive to look at things differently, and never do anything solely because “that’s the way it’s always been done.”

We’re a team of designers and engineers, industry-veterans and serial entrepreneurs, artists and developers. We’re aspiring chess masters, and climbers, capoeiristas and bakers, snowboarders and photographers. Originally spun out of Stanford and the University of Colorado, we now call downtown San Francisco home, with strong ties to Hong Kong. We are looking for teammates who share our desire to work on ambitious problems and leave the world better than we found it.

unspun is an equal opportunity employer, and we are committed to being a diverse team that reflects a broad range of background, thought, and experience. We do not discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, status as an individual with a disability, status as protected veteran, or any other legally protected characteristics. Women, minorities, and people from underrepresented backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
