The role:

Calling all dreamers. The original once-forgotten sneaker brand—born in 1964 and rediscovered in 2008.

We’re looking for a Social Media Intern with a true passion for all things social and knack for creating fun and out-of-the-box content to help grow the brand message through engaging tactics online. Are you a highly motivated self-starter who has fun creating and playing in an everchanging social environment? Do you love digesting content on social media and brainstorming effective ways to engage audiences while fostering community online? The ideal candidate is truly invested in the social landscape and isn’t afraid to test & learn new approaches to support the team in establishing our brand voice across a variety of platforms. If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.

We are a conscious, optimistic and curious group of people who believe in this brand and our collective vision to inspire a world of dreamers to rediscover their potential.

About SeaVees:
SeaVees. Rediscover the dream.

We all have dreams. We tell ourselves we’re too young, old, busy, or just not good enough. And that’s when they end up on a shelf. Our brand was quite literally put on a shelf for nearly 40 years before our founder discovered a pair at a second-hand shop in Tokyo and brought it back to life in its original home in California—the state where dreams come true, or in our case, have a second chance. At SeaVees, we believe there’s a sea of possibilities. In rediscovering who we are and what we can be.

We have a rich and remarkable history, of family, of ambition and of innovation, of leading from the front with a legacy of outstanding brands and equally outstanding people. Of pioneering brands that make life better. Brands that create an emotional connection with our consumers and help keep people on the move. Brands that do good, that form part of a positive business that takes action for people and planet.

We celebrate differences and give everyone the freedom to innovate and develop because we know this is an exceptional place to build brands and build your career. We want you to come to work every day excited about what we can achieve when we have a clear and single-minded focus on being consumer-centric and relentlessly focused on improving our performance.
