We’re building a new consumer brand to disrupt and redefine the workwear category. Starting in boots and apparel, BRUNT is on a mission to make the tools you wear. We have aspirations to build a large, successful business that will stand the test of time. We are well on our way.

Founder Eric Girouard has worked side-by-side with his buddies in the trades, obsessing over how to build a collection of products that makes real workers’ lives easier. BRUNT launched in September 2020 with a core selection of the most comfortable, yet functional workwear in the category, and the consumer reaction has exceeded all expectations.

You will also help build out accounting processes and controls, assist in the monthly close process, year-end audit, tax items and compliance, and help with various other ad hoc projects. This role has huge growth potential, with the opportunity to work closely with senior leadership and gain insight into cross functional areas of the business within a high growth start-up environment and culture.
