Hi, my name is Jeff & I’m one of the founders of Paragon Fitwear (www.paragonfitwear.com & www.instagram.com/paragonfitwear). Thanks for checking this posting! Let me tell you about the role, our brand, and the opportunity we’ve got for you.
To save us both some time, this is not a good job for someone who:
This is a good job for someone who:
So far, so good? Here’s a little about our brand.
We make exceptional quality activewear at an affordable price. We’re 100% online, direct-to-consumer, and fully remote with a very small team of staff spread throughout the US. We have 3 owners working full time and 5-6 part time or contractors.
We believe in social responsibility. We’re a carbon neutral brand, we’ve recently committed to donating 1% of net income to environmental protection & other social justice causes, and we’re working hard on improving the sustainability of our supply chain.
We’ve been experiencing explosive growth. Our biggest bottleneck over the last 2 years has been selling out of inventory within weeks, days, or even hours. Our annual revenue is mid seven figures & has been doubling or tripling each year for the last 2 years. Our average product review is 4.7/5 stars with over 7,000 reviews & our rate of return customers regularly exceeds 50%. Simply put, once customers try our products, they’re in love. The future is bright!
So far, marketing has been led by me (Jeff). You will be our brand’s first full time employee. We’re so excited!
What you’ll do
Some important cultural values
We don’t have firm requirements, but the more of these areas you can demonstrate experience or proof for, the better!
PLEASE NOTE: Because this is our first director-level hire, we’d like to hire you initially on a 3 month contract basis to see if we’re a good fit for each other. This would not affect onboarding or pay. We’d just set a target date where we evaluate if we’re in mutual agreement about the fit & need to be on the same page about this being a trial.
