  • Review measurement specifications for each unique customer, including waist, hip, and inseam length. 
  • Measure, mark, and cut garments to achieve key points of measure.
  • Use industrial machines to sew, press, and finish garments.
  • Quality check garments meet key points of measure and quality standards.

What We Are Looking For:

  • 3+ years experience in altering or making garments, with experience in knits and stretch fabrics.
  • Proficient in sewing with coverstitch, overlock, and straight stitch. Industrial sewing machine experience is preferred.
  • Experience in pattern-making or sample-making is a plus.
  • Energy to drive positive change, grow, and thrive.
  • Enthusiasm to use your expertise to contribute to new designs, products, and company growth.

The Details:

  • Hours are stable and flexible - part-time or full time depending on your schedule. We believe in great people, and we will create a schedule that works for you.
  • This role is based in our brand-new sewing studio in Verdi, Nevada.

Our Values:

Rise Together

Individual heroes don’t build great companies, teams do. Collaboration makes us stronger, provides diverse thinking, and gets us farther, faster.

Constantly Question

Always be curious. We do things differently and always ask “Why?"

Keep it Real

Be direct. Be transparent. No politics. No games—with our brand, customers, partners, or each other.

Don't Give Up

Changing an industry is not easy. The question is: what are we going to do about it? Let’s find a way through together. No excuses.

Do the Right Thing

There is always a choice. Pick the one that does right by our customers, community, and planet.

Never Compromise

Let’s be the best in the world at what we do. Don’t cut corners. Focus on the best possible customer experience. 

Enjoy the Ride

Life is short. Live your passions, in and outside of work.
