Working for Unbelts

A Brief History: Unbelts is a Shanghai-born, Edmonton-grown business heck-bent on keeping pants up and doing good along the way. The first ethically-manufactured belt to be designed specifically for size- and gender-inclusivity, we are all about moving freely through life without stopping to hitch up your jeans.   Our small and mighty team is fuelled by stick-to-itiveness and rock-solid values, and we’ve grown to distribute our zero-bulk, ridiculously comfortable belts to nearly 500 brick-and-mortar retailers across North America and a fast-growing online customer base worldwide. 

Our Values - We are firmly rooted in our belief that humans of every gender and shape deserve to feel great in their jeans and secure in their jobs. We use our products to advocate for body positivity, gender inclusivity, and equitable labour practices. We were Western Canada’s first apparel-industry B Corporation, which means we’re rigorously audited and certified for holding down a triple bottom line that benefits people, planet and profit. We’ve been listed as Best For The World company for two years running, are a 1% For The Planet partner company, and are Canada’s national coordinators of the global Fashion Revolution ethical fashion movement.

Why We’re Hiring - Over the past two years, we’ve been transforming from a scrappy, bootstrappy start-up to an ambitious manufacturer and distributor that’s scaling fast. Next up: aggressive, data-driven growth of direct-to-consumer sales, using primarily digital marketing tools to drive new customer acquisition and conversions. You, a highly experienced self-starter who has a passion for real results, can be a part it all as our Growth Marketing Manager.

About Unbelts HQ: Our Edmonton studio and warehouse are located at Studio 72 (9909 72 Ave NW), with some of Edmonton's friendliest and most respected creative entrepreneurs as our neighbours. From this location, we prep and ship all Canadian orders, sew our Intrepid product line, and hold community events. Our team also includes off-site employees who work in locales from Cold Lake to Washington State.

Team spirit: This is a start-up environment where every team member is indispensable. Clear communication; a down-to-earth, positive attitude; and sheer determination are what get the job done around here. 

Perks: We believe in creating meaningful, life-friendly work for every Unbelts employee and supplier. In addition to an industry-competitive salary, we offer benefits like public transit subsidies, paid volunteer time off, ethical fashion allowances, and flexible scheduling. In exchange, you help us measurably move the needle towards our ambitious sales and community impact goals.
