We’re in the business of solving extra-large, extra-tough questions — the biggest one, of course, being “How can we make the very normal process of clothing ourselves less wasteful?”

To find the right answers to those questions, we need the right people: smart cookies, passionate fashionistas, AI eggheads…the list goes on and on.

We spend a ton of time scouring the world to match each role to the ideal candidate, supported by our work-from-anywhere policy. The end result is a global dispersion that’s impressive for a company of our size (creeping up to 50 employees as I write this).

  • Countries represented: 12
  • Timezones spanned: 13
  • Largest home base: London, UK (~8.9 million)
  • Smallest home base: Santa Cruz, CA, USA (~62,000)
  • Most desired home base: Maui, HI, USA

Building our team with folks from all over is a purposeful choice. Diversity of thought is what makes us powerful — one of a few core reasons why we’re poised to solve frustrating inventory challenges for retailers better than anyone out there.

But this freedom of home base also has quite a few perks for the Syrup team members working dedicatedly each day. Let’s explore a few of them now, straight from the figurative horses’ mouths.

What's something unique about your location?

The benefits of global distribution

In addition to the undeniable perk of being able to take advantage of the unique wonders that make your home base special, working from anywhere also has a ton of additional benefits for Syrup as a company and our treasured customers:

  • It allows us to find the best talent, no matter where in the world they may be today.
  • It enables us to offer local representation for our customers across the globe.
  • It ensures that whenever a question arises, someone will be up to answer it.
What has helped most

It takes extra support to make remote work work

Of course, working remotely is not without its challenges. Nothing beats the thrum of energy that comes from in-person connection. To counterbalance, we implement a carefully thought through selection of perks, tools, and philosophies. Here’s a small sample:

  • Digital connectivity tools like Gather, Notion, Slack, Jira, and more.
  • Policies that help everyone make the most of their local idiosyncracies, like holidays and timezones.
  • Consistent in-person get-togethers — check out the blog I wrote about our Syrup Summits.
Where would you go?

I hope that, like Magellan and Google before me, mapping things out for you has helped provide some perspective. And if you want to take full advantage of wherever it is that you call home while helping fashion and apparel brands nail their inventory strategies, check out our open roles. On second thought, maybe move to Maui first?
