Customer Service Representative

Company: Oboz Footwear
Location: Bozeman
Posted on: May 15, 2022

Job Description:

Company Overview

Ob--z Footwear is a wholesale brand founded in 2007. Our home, Bozeman, Montana, is an outdoor adventurer's paradise and is what motivates us to lace up daily to explore the 18 million acres of Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem that surround us. Bozeman also inspired our name: Outside + Bozeman = Ob--z. The four points of our compass-People, Community, Foot, and Experience-guide everything we do in staying "True to the Trail." We also plant a tree for every pair of footwear sold and have since our beginning.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer, and all applications will be reviewed based on skill and qualifications for the role. As the "True to the Trail" brand, we are committed to being true to our people and hiring a diverse workforce. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation or protected veteran status.

Our HQ is powered by clean wind energy - 100% of our office power comes from wind farms in Central Idaho and Washington. We carbon-offset our shoe shipments, employee travel and the office utility bill. And the shoes we don't sell make a difference, too - we donate our unsellable (but still trail-worthy) shoes, partnering local and national non-profits to find feet in need.
