What you'll do at

 The digital consumer brand group is incubating a new brand rooted in modern American wardrobe staples at very affordable prices. We are developing an omni apparel brand that will offer women’s, men’s and children’s clothing across DTC, Walmart Stores, Walmart eComm, and our own branded standalone stores. We are dedicated to serving the true range of Modern America, creating a better wardrobe foundation that works for every walk of life. We are rewriting the rules of American essentials.

 Headquartered in New York, NY, we are a team of builders, thinkers, risk-takers, and dreamers pushing boundaries to create world-class shopping experiences and meaningful brands that customers love. Our hypothesis is that modern brands must have a strong direct to consumer relationship to be relevant to today’s consumers. We believe that a DTC presence makes for strong, lasting brands that form a deeper connection with the customer and establish authority & credibility in a category. We are extremely design-forward, customer-centric and mission-driven. At their core, our brands will provide incredible value to the Walmart consumer delivering the highest quality at the best possible price.
