Posted on Monday, June 17, 2024

We’re leading the way in redefining the workwear category. Our mission is to engineer better boots and apparel for our country’s tradesmen and women by working directly with real workers to learn what they actually need to execute their jobs.

The BRUNT team is not only devoted to improving on the old workwear standards, but we’re also creating a community that tradesmen and women can call their own. From our weekly hangouts at the BRUNT Garage, to hosting events across the country, we’re all about getting boots on the ground and building something real with the BRUNT crew.

You’ll do this by leveraging information derived from customer insights, market research and site data. You will continuously test, innovate and iterate to always ensure a best in class customer-centric user experience for BRUNT’s website.
