We believe that clothes — and how you make them — can make a difference.

Since 1853, we’ve been passionate about innovation to meet people’s needs. We invented the first blue jean. And we reinvented khaki pants. We pioneered labor and environmental guidelines for our manufacturing partners. And we work to build sustainability into everything we do.

A company doesn’t last 160 years by standing still. It endures by reinventing itself, striving to delight its consumers, winning in the marketplace, and by remaining true to its values. We employ more than 17,000 people around the world – supporting great brands, including Levi’s®, Dockers® and Denizen®. Our employees are committed to progress, authenticity and collaboration.

In this role, you will provide strategic, financial, analytical and operational support to executive leaders in Levi Strauss & Co. As an essential member of the team, you will provide key financial partnership to the technology leadership team.
