Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our Home Office vibe is exactly how it sounds- it feels like home. It's exciting because you never know what daily surprises are in store-Kendra could be walking around in a unicorn costume giving everyone hugs or our Fun Committee may be hosting a happy hour in the cafe to relieve the stress of a busy week. This place is truly one of a kind!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

In 2.5 years, I’ve been fortunate to experience our brand in 3 different cities. After 2 years in Memphis & Nashville as a Community Relations & Events Manager, I moved to Austin to take on a new role of Talent Acquisition Specialist. I’m thankful for a company that is committed to internal growth and sees development potential in every employee.

Our IT team acts as a direct pipeline that connects them to our brand. I constantly challenge my team to continue to innovate the way we bring Family, Fashion, and Philanthropy to our customers.

Kendra

Founder and CEO

All of them! I just finished a new warehouse management system implementation and we have a roadmap full of system investments slated for 2018, all of which are critical to fuel our continued success! I love that I get exposure to ALL systems at Kendra Scott, including ERP, POS, WMS, & E-comm- experience I'd be hard pressed to gain anywhere else!
