We believe the world is a better place when women succeed. Our goal is to take the work out of dressing for work-whether that means heading to the office, networking over brunch, leading PTA meetings, or anything in between. Our thoughtfully designed pieces are practical, comfortable, and beautiful, and we hope that when you wear them, you feel like the most polished and powerful version of yourself.</p><p>Who are we?</p><p>We're a group of go-getters who are passionate about reimagining the way women shop and dress for work. We get inspiration from our customers, and everything we design has a purpose and a human touch. We think big, but we sweat the details, and we take our work (but never ourselves) seriously. We're steady but nimble, thanks to a whip-smart, energetic team that's not afraid to be scrappy. We are perfectionists who sometimes spill on our clothes-we own our mistakes, turn challenges into growth, and evolve as we learn. We embrace ambiguity, celebrate weird ideas, and love a work in progress. We are kind but direct, and we practice Kizukai-a Japanese word that means &quot;empathy in action.&quot; We are incredibly proud of the team we've built, and we're excited to continue evolving as we grow.</p><p>About This Role</p><p>As a member of the Creative Team, the Art Director will focus on developing and continuing to evolve the M.M. brand identity.
