“SNOWBOARD ADDICTION PROVIDES THE WORLDS BEST VIDEO SNOWBOARD INSTRUCTION, MAKING IT AVAILABLE TO ALL SHREDDERS WORLD-WIDE!”
Snowboard Addiction is a small snowboarder-owned-and-run company based in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. We started back in 2007 with a few PDF manuals and some very low-fi videos. Our content rapidly expanded from there and quality has greatly improved along the way.
We are now looking to extend and develop our fashion related apparel and clothing line.
This position is an excellent opportunity for an individual to become the key driving force behind our fashion clothing line.
The role involves responsibility for the design and development of all clothing from concept to finished product.
Key responsibilities will include managing the development process from design through to production within given deadlines. Designing, creating size specs, technical specs, liaising with factories and off site visits, placing orders, reviewing lab dips and fabrics and ensuring quality, functional product that meets the demands.
The successful individual will have a bachelor’s degree in a fashion related field and 3+ years of experience in garment design and product development. Plus a strong technical knowledge of garment construction, performance product and fit. Strong computer skills in Excel, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Microsoft office applications and Outlook are also essential, as is a strong passion for the snowboarding industry.
