Social Media and Customer Experience Specialist 🔥
Threadless is a diverse, global community of independent artists and those who support them. We are creatives from all over the world with different backgrounds coming together to make great art.
We started with just t-shirts, but tons of products make great canvases. While we work with partners to find these canvases for our artists, it’s our community who makes and picks the best art for us to offer. Whether it’s voted-on art at Threadless.com or designs artists choose to share in their very own Artist Shops, when you buy from us, you support great art. The weird art. The geeky art. The beautiful art. More importantly, here at Threadless, we feel that art plays a meaningful role in driving progress and creating cultural change.
We first opened our doors in 2000 with a headquarters in Chicago. Now we are a fully remote company, giving our employees the flexibility to do their best work from anywhere.
Threadless. Make Great Together
