Catbird used to be very, very small. If we needed to communicate something, we would turn our heads and say it to a coworker who was inevitably two feet away. Maybe less. Our goal, as we grow, is to retain the warmth and interconnectedness of our roots, fueled by the curiosity, flexibility, and hard work of our teams throughout the years.
We seek to provide the types of jobs where people can be themselves — can work hard and go home and not always carry work around — in a welcoming, comfortable space, to provide important benefits, to allow breathing room for emergencies, and where there is a culture of kindness and inclusivity.
We encourage you to apply! Catbird is an equal opportunity employer and diversity is highly valued at our company. All applicants receive consideration for employment. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
Catbird is committed to the well-being of candidates, employees and our community. While some of our positions are currently remote, the posted position will be based in-person in our Brooklyn Navy Yard studio or stores. We are closely following the CDC and NY Forward guidelines to create a safe and healthy work environment.
