We’re a team of optimists based in London, in various cities in the US + across 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 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.
Aday is looking for an awesome individual to work with the Aday Product Team across all things technical design & product development. Throughout your internship, you will learn first-hand the design & development processes within the fashion industry. You will help produce technical drawings, organise and run sample fittings, and be directly involved in creating innovative new products. In addition, you will have the opportunity to learn how to use a PLM system, communicate with factories, and directly impact the development of new products. You will also engage in weekly meetings with the entire Aday team and actively participate in group brainstorms and discussions.
We are online-first and use digital media and events to tell our customers a story. Our designs use innovative materials and technical finishes that push the boundaries of functionality and creativity. Maintaining such a balance is the enduring challenge of our product team. We are primarily looking for a self-starter who is excited to learn the skills and understanding necessary in building a flourishing fashion brand.
