About Gap Inc.

Our past is full of iconic moments — but our future is going to spark many more. Our brands — Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, INTERMIX and Hill City — have dressed people from all walks of life and all kinds of families, all over the world, for every occasion for more than 50 years.

But we’re more than the clothes that we make. We know that business can and should be a force for good, and it’s why we work hard to make product that makes people feel good, inside and out. It’s why we’re committed to giving back to the communities where we live and work. If you're one of the super-talented who thrive on change, aren't afraid to take risks and love to make a difference, come grow with us. 

About the role

Old Navy makes current American fashion essentialsaccessible to every family. From day one, Old Navy was a revolution. Wewere something the world had never seen - fabulous, affordable fashion. Wedidn't take ourselves too seriously, and we broke the industry's rules. We saidfashion didn't have to be just for rich people - it could be for everyone. We opened our first store in 1994 in San Francisco and have been on aroll ever since. Today, customers can shop for their must-have fashion essentialsonline as well as in one of our 1,000+ stores located globally.

When you work at Old Navy, you’re choosing a different path (and a prettyawesome one at that). We believe that style and quality should beaccessible to everyone and we work hard to make that possible. Truth is,in fashion, it’s easy to be exclusive. It takes a lot more creativity,guts and drive to be inclusive.
