We are looking for a highly motivated, key contributor at Austin's favorite footwear start-up, ALVIES. We have a team that executes across a wide range of areas to help grow our business including marketing, sales, retail, operations & creative, among others. Every role at ALVIES is focused on creating an amazing experience for our customers and we offer every employee an opportunity to participate in helping drive business.
ALVIES is a direct to consumer cowboy boot & flip-flop brand that sells our products online and out of direct-to-consumer channels. Our direct-to-consumer model helps us remove all of the heavy fees that you find with boot retailers and brings superior products to market at a fraction of the cost.
ALVIES products are designed in-Austin and include men and women western boots, leather flip-flops and other Texas products. We create a quality and comfortable product and a personalized and fun experience for every customer that walks into our doors.
At ALVIES, you feel something special when you walk into one of our locations. The smell of leather hits your nose immediately. There is a nostalgic feeling that comes across you as you find yourself in a vintage Airstream that you could have camped in 50 years ago. You take a few steps into the midst of a boot store and realize it is surprisingly bigger than what you thought it was before you entered. Our staff has a warm southern hospitality that is welcoming and educational on ALVIES products and our story. When you leave, you have a product and a story that will last a lifetime.

ALVIES is an Austin, Texas brand founded in January of 2014 with classic cowboy boots and high-end genuine leather flip-flops. We are the first direct-to-consumer cowboy boot and flip-flop company and sell on our website at www.ALVIES.com. We also sell at events, festivals, charities, party's and do pop-up-shops around town with our vintage Airstream trailers. By selling only directly to consumers, the company significantly lowers the high costs of buying premium boots and flops from retailers. The designs for all of our products feature Austin's inspired style and easy going way of life.
ALVIES started the "Buy a Pair, Grow a Pear" initiative, taking 1% of sales to grow and distribute organic fruits and vegetables and give those organic foods back to local food shelters and families throughout Austin. Through the process, we also educate those families in need on the importance of nutrition.
Our team executes across a wide range of areas to help grow our business including marketing, sales, retail, operations & creative, among others. Every role at ALVIES is focused on creating an amazing experience for our customers. If you’re interested in joining an outstanding and creative team then we welcome an opportunity to connect with you.
