Which Büro location do you work out of?
What does your company do, and what is your role?
We manufacture shoes that have timeless silhouettes with a modern design layer so they can be worn on any occasion. All Jibs are made in Brazil with recycled soles, flexible slip-on design, and perforated bio leather. This allows our shoes to seamlessly fit around your unique feet, giving an utterly snug feeling. I founded Jibs in NYC in 2015 with an ever-evolving team of fashion and creative industry experts. More importantly, we are a group of positive thinkers that believe every step you take is an opportunity to better connect with yourself as well as the people and places around you. And the better we feel and look, the more we connect. This drove us to create shoes that inspire others, and remind us of our beliefs, every step we take.
What do you like best about your job?
Meeting such a variety of people and hearing all their stories - it's incredible to learn no matter how different our day to day lives are, we are all unique human beings who appreciate kindness. This is what makes our world so beautiful and diverse. Oh, and the amazing access to pretty, comfy, and fun sneakers. *smile*
What is your business motto/philosophy?
It's not "Build it and they will come", it's "Build it, make it great, tell everyone about it, and when they come in the door, hug and kiss them so they know they are appreciated."
