Why Mitchell & Ness

Great Culture
The Accounting Team is busy and the environment is fast-paced. At the same time, the crew is laid back and willing to pitch in and help when needed. It's a great place to work -- we check our egos at the door and bring a sense of humor to the office. The atmosphere is jeans casual, friendly and open.      

Ground-Floor Opportunity
Last year, we divested from our former owners and are now operating as a separate entity and we’re in the process of building out our platform. This includes implementing a new ERP system (NetSuite) and new back-office departments. Because of these changes, some of our processes and procedures are not fully defined. You’ll have the ability to bring structure and process to our Accounting function, while always keeping an eye out for opportunities for improvement and refinement.

Excellent Compensation 
In addition to a competitive salary, you will enjoy a comprehensive benefits package including, medical, dental and vision insurances with a suite of options (the company pays a large percentage of the insurance premium for the employee), a 401(k) plan with company match, a generous vacation, sick & holiday benefit, 50% employee discount and more.  
 
Pride, Passion & Quality
At Mitchell & Ness, we are passionate about the authenticity and quality of our products. When recreating legacy apparel, we are dedicated to getting all the fine details correct.

You can feel good knowing you're working for a company that still cares about delivering well designed, top quality apparel. Customers love the Mitchell & Ness brand, as demonstrated by our long history of success.  

Autonomy and Support
While team members tend to be laid back and helpful when needed, they are also very busy and everyone understands that we are all working on several projects simultaneously. Those who thrive at Mitchell & Ness are self-motivated, independent and enjoy autonomy in meeting their responsibilities. At the same time, support is available when you need it, both from the Controller and the team. You need only ask.

Great Location
Our office is located in the center of the city. It’s easily accessible by public transportation and there are plenty of places to grab lunch. While it’s important to be in the office most of the time, we’re also flexible. For example, if you have an appointment for which you must be home, or the snow if very heavy, you can sometimes log in and work from home.

Pictured: Mitchell & Ness headwear is a fan favorite. We offer knits, snapback and fitted caps.

Keys to Success

We value work/life balance and truly believe in a collaborative approach to getting things done. You’ll share knowledge with others on the team while learning from the Controller as well. 

Your ability to communicate well with others and build relationships with team members and stakeholders throughout the company will also be important. We’re looking for a candidate with strong change management skills who can come in, evaluate and then give recommendations for change. It will be important that you take a diplomatic approach, gaining buy-in from decision makers on why a process or procedure should change. Quick question for you - click here
