Aday is a direct-to-consumer brand with the aim to lift the standard for clothing through great design + a better supply chain. We’re a team of optimists (currently working remotely around the globe) and we’re dedicated to making positive changes in the world around us. We’re also pretty fun (if we do say so ourselves), and we strive to make each day interesting, challenging and rewarding.
We’ve raised over $10m in venture capital and were named one of the Most Innovative Companies in the World by Fast Company. You can read more about us in places like Fast Company, Vogue, Refinery29 + Conde Nast Traveler (and many more).
We’re committed to building each other up and being there for our teammates—we’re an Aday family.
We believe in flexibility and accountability. We encourage our teammates to manage their own schedules (an early bird working at 6am is just as awesome as a night owl working at 10pm—you get to choose), and to take time off whenever needed (we’ll share our favorite travel tips and adventures, too). We like to work hard and relax hard.
We are excited about the future of Aday and the future of each of our teammates. We are passionate about personal growth and we’re here to support each person in their journey, no matter what that looks like.
We know that diversity is what makes us great. We’re committed to diversity in all areas, and we believe that every person on our team has an important point of view that deserves to be heard, no matter the role or seniority.
