MOOSEJAW JOB POSTINGS

Moosejaw is the greatest place in the world to work according to the owner's mom. Moosejaw has a thriving internet business and shops locations throughout Michigan (Ann Arbor, Birmingham, Detroit, East Lansing, Grosse Pointe, Partridge Creek, and Rochester Hills), as well as shops in Chicago, IL, Boulder, CO, Kansas City, MO and Natick, MA.

To work at Moosejaw, you've gotta have a decent sense of humor and an enthusiastic attitude. Knowledge of outdoor apparel and equipment is a big plus.

Here's how you apply for a job at Moosejaw:
1. Scroll down to check out our current job openings below. They're always being updated, except when they're not. Which is never. If you want to be a Moosejaw intern, check out our Internships Page thing. An intern designed and built it, so we gave her an A.
2. Complete our application by clicking here, saving it to your computer and emailing it back to us at jobs@moosejaw.com. I forgot to include a step - you must complete the application before emailing it back to us. We may or may not accept blank applications.
3. I just like the number three.
4. If you're interested in a shop position, stop by and say hi. They'll let you fill out an application right then and there and may even give you a free tattoo (temporary not permanent).
5. If you don't like any of the above options and still want to give a shout out click here to email us.

Sales Associates, All Shop Locations

We're seeking sales associates for all shop locations. This job involves sales, customer service and humans. Or Homo Sapiens and stuff if you prefer to be technical. The technical part of that sentence was the word "stuff."

Moosejaw sales associates have an enthusiastic, fun and positive attitude while assisting customers with sales and product information. A good sense of humor, creative mindset and passion for customer service are needed. Like an I-love-you-so-much-I-want-to-have-a-million-babies-with-you passion for customer service. Plus outdoor gear knowledge is preferred.

Apply in person at the shop of your choice or email your application to jobs@moosejaw.com. Don't forget to include which shop you wanna work at and your best self-portrait sketch using only old-school pencil. This description has a lot more hyphens than normal. JK. About the sketch thing. Not the hyphen thing.

 

Buyer, Footwear & Accessories

We're looking for an experienced retail Buyer to add to our merchandising team based out of our headquarters in Madison Heights, Michigan. Our buyers buy stuff. They also do fancier types of things like managing assigned product categories and executing Moosejaw's merchandising vision of both the online and brick-and-mortar businesses. Totally fancy. I think what I'm trying to get at is that our buyers are essential to what we do here. Otherwise we'd be selling air. And the hope for peace on earth. Kumbaya.

Categories that our Footwear and Accessories Buyer will oversee include all footwear and socks for men, women, and kids plus seasonal soft-lines accessories, such as gloves, hats, head and face protection, and other important gear you can wear. Think a lot of brands and a lot of SKUs. And additional responsibilities will be added TBD style because we're always growing, exploring and trying new things. We're really looking for a strong merchant, preferably with multi-channel retail experience, who loves Moosejaw and is familiar with the products we sell.

Planning experience and footwear category expertise is strongly desired, as well as a knack for finding the coolest shiz. We want someone who has a track record for staying ahead of technology and trends. I really thought the phrase was "tract record" until the world wide web told me otherwise. Candidates must be willing to travel to Moosejaw shops, industry shows and vendor line showings. This position reports to one of our Senior Buyers.

Responsibilities Include:

  • Executing Moosejaw's merchandising vision of both the online and brick-and-mortar channels, and leading the growth of our outdoor gear business
  • Managing assigned product categories through strategic assortment planning by channel, beginning with a laser focus on Moosejaw's customer and the marketplace. Lasers can be used in many ways: laser tag, laser hair removal. But laser focus is pretty decent too.
  • Implementing leading-edge footwear assortments with the greatest focus on hike and climb, run/train, casual lifestyle, sandals, and winter footwear. Ensuring Moosejaw is well ahead of the market and trends, and perpetually developing new brands. We want to be like the coolest girl in high school during the 80's who first wore a banana clip.

  • Driving sales and margin growth in assigned product categories through seasonal and annual strategies
  • Managing receipt flow planning

Ensuring we are in position to meet or exceed both sales growth and profit margin objectives consistently in all channels of business.
  • Developing both full-price and off-price business strategies
  • Managing category, brand and cross-channel strategy. Executing big ideas.
  • Developing and overseeing seasonal conversions, as well as entry and exit strategies
  • Collaborating with and supporting the marketing team to execute Moosejaw's merchandising vision
  • Seasonally identifying the best brands, products, and business opportunities and building the plans/execution strategies necessary to bring them to market successfully
  • Building strong and mutually-productive partnerships with suppliers
  • Managing an assistant buyer to get the most and best, setting and communicating guiding goals, measuring accomplishments, diagnosing strengths, weaknesses and potential, delegating and developing
  • Collaborating with the merchandise planning team on allocation and replenishment
  • Doing really cool stuff that's worth telling your best friend, neighbor, ex-g/b friend and creepy uncle about

  • Ability to cultivate strong vendor relationships is required
  • Must be a natural-born leader, which is way better than a natural-born killer. I made that whole natural-born thing up. I thought it lent itself well to my Woody Harrelson obsession.
  • Must be extremely self-motivated and able to exhibit out-of-the-box thinking to formulate new and creative ways of doing things, challenge assumptions, be comfortable with ambiguity, and have a future-oriented focus
  • Must have strong project management skills with the ability to foster a sense of urgency, be aggressive in pushing for deadlines and communicating issues, identify and overcome obstacles, as well as proactive in providing status updates on projects
  • Must exhibit a high degree of flexibility, maintain a solution-driven focus in challenging situations, adapt quickly to changing business requirements and be able to thrive amidst chaos
  • Must have a strong affinity for the Moosejaw brand, Love the Madness and embrace the Moosejaw culture. You knew this one was coming.

Things we'll bring to the table:

  • Ping pong, a hammock lounge, dart shooting, a beer fridge and decent music. The list could go on, but I like to be all mysterious and stuff.
  • Cubicle-free work environment. However, you are encouraged to build a fort around you using couch cushions, pillows and blankets from your mom's house.
  • Coworkers who will laugh at your jokes. Even if they're just being polite.

Moosejaw Models Wanted

We're looking for a few female models, age 18-25, to pose gracefully in the coolest products we carry. Models will be used for in-house photo shoots at our headquarters located in Madison Heights, Michigan. This will be great exposure (and I don't mean indecent by any means) for up-and-coming models as they'll appear in our print, catalog and online material.

  • Modeling experience is preferred.
  • Must be 18 years of age or older. No ifs, ands or buts.
  • Michigan applicants only. Although we love the rest of the country, we're quite partial to Michigan. Oh yeah, and Moosejaw will not be paying for expenses to travel to our headquarters. So it'd probably save you a lot of money in gas if you live in state.

How to Apply:
Email your resume or work history, along with no more than 3 pictures, to models@moosejaw.com. We're very serious about the 3-picture limit, so if you send 4 we'll think you're not great about following directions. Sorry to be so mean.
