Careers At Knack

HELP CHANGE THE WAY PEOPLE CARRY THEIR LIFE

We created Knack to make it easier for multi-tasking, mobile professionals to get from Point A to Point B without lugging a bunch of bags - in other words, #OneBagLife. Our multi-purpose products combine the best features of stylish, daily-use computer backpacks with a patent-pending hidden compartment that you can easily access, expand and pack like a suitcase whenever you need extra space for travel, the gym or anywhere your life takes you. We sell our products exclusively through knackbags.com.

While the Knack team calls on years of personal experience working with brands like Tumi, North Face, Coach, Samsonite, and eBags, we think our company is unique and different. Each Knack team member is trusted with autonomy and getting the work done without micromanagement. We enjoy hanging out with each other, but we also keep meetings to a minimum. We are always looking for talented people to join our rapidly-expanding company.

At Knack, we have a thirst for change, love creative thinking, expect data-driven decisions, and believe in remote-work and flexible work hours. Knack is a fully remote company with headquarters located in Providence, RI and Portland, OR.
