Careers at Bellroy
Wholesale Account Lead

IN A NUTSHELL

Bellroy is a global business (founded in Melbourne, Australia) with a bold growth plan. Since we sold our first wallet in 2011, we’ve diversified into bags, tech accessories and small leather goods. We’re now a team of 100+ staff, selling in more than 1,250 doorways and directly to consumers in 150 countries globally. We’ve got a growing account base in the U.S. which includes opinion-leading retailers such as Apple, Best Buy, Nordstrom, Backcountry and MoMA. We’re on the hunt for a Wholesale Account Lead to support our team during this exciting time.

We recognized pretty early on that we could use business as a force for good. So, as a certified B Corp, we constantly pursue better ways to source our leathers, reduce our impact on the environment and make sure our products last as long as possible. We’re proud of the products we make and equally proud of the relationships we build with our retailers based on respect, appreciation for good design and the mutual desire to help customers move through the world with ease. If this sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, bring us your can-do attitude, people skills and love of organizing. In return we’ll provide you with an excellent work culture, a passionate team and the support to develop your skills.

OUR MISSION

Inspire better ways to carry.
Use business as a force for good.
Help the world, and our crew, flourish.

Our Spaces

Bellroy' is a fusion of our two homes – Bells Beach and Fitzroy. Bells Beach brings a relaxed, outdoor vibe to balance Fitzroy's creative, urban style. The city and the sea; inspiration and adventure. Together they provide a perfect balance.

Bells Beach

Our beach HQ sits behind giant sandstone cliffs that overlook one of Australia’s best-known surfing coastlines. It’s where our Product Designers experiment in the Maker Lab, and our Sales team consume awesome amounts of espresso and Skype bandwidth. Things are more tranquil here than our Fitzroy neighbours and we like the focus that can create. There’s a cafe right next door if you need a quick bite and our 11am surf check always provides the perfect chance to reset the mind with some salt air.

Fitzroy

Our Fitzroy space is immersed in the middle of Melbourne’s creative hub. It’s where our Creative, Marketing, Engineering and Operations teams develop campaigns and ensure each Bellroy is sent safely across the world. Walk out the door and you’ll find streets bursting with energy (and the best ramen joint this side of Tokyo).

Remotely

Outside of our two main headquarters we have a team that works remotely - from Western Australia to parts of Asia, the USA and Europe. Being global is at the heart of Bellroy, it keeps us connected, and makes sure we see life from many different perspectives. If you have an internet connection and the flexibility to become part of a team you don’t see everyday, you might consider joining our growing global network.
