THE ROLE: Distribution Centre Team Lead 

LOCATION: Richmond, BC 


We are Vancouver-designed, North American made, and globally inspired. Our belief in slowing down the fashion cycle led us to make clothing on demand and with a clear purpose – to delight our #smashtessfam.  Our best-selling Romper fabric is a sustainable rayon from bamboo and cotton blend, and although it costs more for us to use it, it’s proven to stand the test of time and retain its shape and softness when treated well. We produce in our own backyard under our watchful eyes to ensure that our clothing is made in the very best working conditions by skilled and talented seamsters.   

Smash + Tess was founded by a mother-daughter-bestie trio, dedicated to creating “everywear” to take you from the sheets to the streets… and beyond! Disrupting the fashion industry with chic and cozy clothing, Smash + Tess has a cult-like following from celebrities, influencers, and everyday women, because aside from our seriously cute designs, we’ve created a community that celebrates comfortability and style!  We exist to make our customers lives easy-- because life can be complicated and life can be hard… but deciding what to wear doesn’t need to be!
