  • Converse is the story of a sneaker that started on the court and moved to the stage and street.

    We’re a brand ready for change and that’s who we hire : the most malleable, the most innovative, and the most creative. Our clothes and sneakers have been worn by rebels, rockers, rappers, artists, thinkers, and individuals.

    So that’s why we hire individuals. So we’re speaking the same language.

    Without you, we’d just be collectors of our own stuff.

    Business equals selling stuff. That’s the basic model. The more complex awesome model is creating stuff that people identify with and then you figuring out how to get it to them.

    We need people like you : creative, dynamic problem solvers who see it as more than business. Who see it as giving people the tools of self-expression and individuality.
