Hypebeast has spotted that adidas has listings for 17 different jobs on their website and they're all to work on Kanye West's Yeezy line. (Three more have been posted since publication.) You can apply right now for exciting jobs like "Senior Designer Footwear," and "Design Director." All positions are based out of the company's headquarters in Portland, Oregon. A rep for adidas told The FADER over email, "These are the first positions from the recently announced adidas + KANYE WEST team to be listed. Additional details and information will be shared in due time."
This surge of new openings is probably connected to Kanye's new partnership with the brand, which was announced to include "a dedicated adidas team leading the development and creation of all Yeezy products." Together, West and adidas will launch new lines of clothing and footwear, and sell them in dedicated retail stores. The brand has billed its union with West as “the most significant partnership ever created between a non-athlete and an athletic brand.”
