Financial Planning & Analysis Manager
Finance & Accounting | Chicago, IL | Full Time
Threadless is a diverse, global community of artists and those who support them, with creatives from all over the world and all different backgrounds coming together to make great art.
We started with just tees, but tons of products make great canvases. While we work with partners to find these canvases for our artists, it’s our community who makes and picks the best art for us to offer. Whether it’s voted-on art at Threadless.com or designs artists choose to include on their very own Artist Shops, when people buy from us, they are supporting great, weird, geeky, and beautiful art. More importantly, here at Threadless, we feel that art plays a meaningful role in driving progress and creating cultural change.
While we're based in Chicago, having first opened our doors in 2000, we’re currently a remote-first company, giving our employees the flexibility to do their best work from anywhere. A healthy work/life balance is incredibly important to us.
Threadless. Make Great Together.
