Armadillo Rugs | Work for a global brand | Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, LA, NYC

Account Manager – SF United States

About Us

Armadillo is a truly sustainable company – for the good of the world we live in and all who journey with us. Our rugs lie lightly on this earth.

Founded in 2009 we are an Australian born company, with showrooms in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.

Our rugs are handcrafted by artisans in India, Nepal and Turkey using natural materials and energy-efficient processes, designed to counteract today’s throwaway culture and stand the test of time. As a certified B Corp, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of sustainability, social responsibility and transparency.

To us, giving back is the only way forward. We donate 10% of net profits from each rug sold to The Armadillo Foundation, the philanthropic arm of our business, which is dedicated to improving lives in underprivileged communities through education, health care and environmental initiatives.

How We Work

As a purpose-driven company, guided by integrity, Armadillo is committed to cultivating the very best talents in their fields. Our workplace is open and inclusive, valuing teamwork and collaboration as well as celebrating individual strengths. We are committed to each other, our work and the wider community – and our hope is to be joined by those who are enthusiastic not just about what we do, but why we do it.
