About the company
We are an Everyday Carry Product company specializing in minimalist products, headlined by our flagship product The Ridge Wallet. The Ridge Wallet started as a Kickstarter project in 2013 and is now in the hands and pockets of over 3 million people worldwide! We currently operate around the globe selling in the US, Canada, the UK, EU, and Australia on Shopify and through other channels such as Amazon and Wholesalers. We are looking for people interested in positions with tremendous growth potential, but which come with high expectations of work rate and quality of work. We are a fully remote company and are very excited to expand into the Eastern European market to continue to grow our team! We currently have a US-based team of just over 50 people! We currently employ over 60+ international contractors around the world! While this may seem like a lot of people, each department only ranges from 2 - 10 people, which opens up a lot of opportunities for growth and advancement. We strive to work with the best people, both on a talent and commitment level to grow and learn more! Since we are a remote-first company, we always do our best to be as accommodating to a healthy work/life balance.
We’re growing faster than ever, adding more website capabilities and increasing our online presence. Most of these advances have been in the US and are slowly being brought to INTL. By the end of October, these INTL site updates will be in a place where they can begin to be implemented and strategized. EACH INTL store is slightly different, and to realize those differences into profits, we will need an expert operator to take ownership of the INTL ecomm-ops; overseeing content updates, testing, localization, and bringing new strategies to the organization.
