Ecommerce Manager

Overview:
Appaman is seeking a Ecommerce Manager. We are a successful NY-based children’s apparel company with an intensely loyal following. 2+ years of e-commerce experience is required; apparel experience is a plus. Send resume to piper@appaman.com.

About Appaman
Appaman, Inc. is a leading boutique children’s apparel company. Featuring the iconic monkey - fashioned after one of the founders' childhood friend, a Norwegian stuffed corduroy ape named Appaman - Appaman's unique designs appeal to children of all ages, whose parents appreciate pop culture, nostalgia, tasteful design and subtle irony, and for whom clothing choice is a means of self expression and creativity.

Our founders Harald and Lynn Husum launched the company from their 600 square foot apartment in the summer of 2003. Harald and Lynn looked to stretch the conventional barriers of what “children’s clothing” could be, targeting a line that both kids and adults would love; they created a collection with a range of influences, including their love of nostalgia and pop culture.

Since launch, Appaman has since enjoyed tremendous exposure from A-list high-profile customers, won numerous unique recognitions and awards, and enjoy a “cult-like” following amongst celebrities and key influencers worldwide. Our clothes can be found in high-end department stores and specialty stores nationwide, and at Appaman.com.

Appaman is based in the Flatiron District of New York City and retains its commitment to unparalleled customer service, garment quality and, above all else, the whimsical spirit of childhood.
