LIVSN Sales & Marketing Manager
This is a rare chance to get in early at a high-growth startup on the very front end of its upward trajectory. LIVSN has seen incredible traction and adoption with our customers and the industry-at-large, having recently been featured in Outside Magazine and named by Gearjunkie as their “Favorite pants of 2020”. We’re ready to build on that growth and need a strong team to make it happen.
This role will be responsible for sales and marketing across all channels. You will be working directly with the founder and a small collection of highly specialized agencies to propel the brand further into the national conversation. As it is when you’re among the first hires at a startup, your roles will be fluid and the responsibilities will be wide-ranging. This takes a certain kind of person who can think both large and small, strategically and tactically, and who thrives when the path ahead is uncertain. We need someone who has done it before, seen how they can do it better, and who wants to build something special.
Does that sound like you?

- Work directly with the founder on communicating brand messaging and value proposition to both our current and prospective audiences

LIVSN Designs was founded in 2018 in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and graduated from the 2019 Techstars Austin cohort. We have run two highly successful Kickstarter campaigns, raising more than $184k from 1,300+ backers, and helping fund the development of our flagship product, the Flex Canvas Pants.
With all of our products, we strive to balance versatility, comfort, and durability with the intention that our customers can own fewer items of clothing that do more and last longer. This ties directly to our approach to sustainability: A product that lasts a long time and serves a variety of purposes well is the most sustainable.
