Become a Part of the NIKE, Inc. Team

NIKE, Inc. does more than outfit the world’s best athletes. It is a place to explore potential, obliterate boundaries and push out the edges of what can be. The company looks for people who can grow, think, dream and create. Its culture thrives by embracing diversity and rewarding imagination. The brand seeks achievers, leaders and visionaries. At NIKE, Inc. it’s about each person bringing skills and passion to a challenging and constantly evolving game.

Soul, performance and style take flight at Jordan Brand. With its deep roots in basketball, the Jordan Brand began as an homage to one player: Michael Jordan. Since then, Jordan has become synonymous with peak performance and an endless pursuit of greatness. Employees in merchandising, product branding, sports marketing and sales bring creativity, innovation and adventurous design to footwear and apparel, all with one mission in mind: help athletes fly on and off the court.

The Jordan Design team is inspired by the Greatest of All Time and is focused on continuing to deliver product that is made and engineered to the exact specification of championship athletes. On and off the court, we want our consumers and athletes to feel confident in the way they look and feel, the same way the greatest player who ever played the game felt every time he laced up his J’s. Jordan Design is a high-performance team that works together, pushes the boundaries, and always stays focused on delivering the best product for the consumer!


We’re looking for an outstanding retail designer to combine their diverse experience, problem solving abilities, cultural pulse and creativity to help build and inspire the future of Jordan Brand Design!

You’re in an early stage of your career and are excited about what’s possible. You’ve got an outstanding foundation in the craft of design and a growing knowledge of design systems. You’re efficient with your time, know your way around the latest design software and tools, and are familiar with the day-to-day operations of a design studio. You can’t wait to merge your growing knowledge of design principles with your love for culture, fashion, and sports. You can balance multiple projects and welcome feedback and direction from senior team members. In addition to your outstanding design chops, you’re proactive, collaborative, and want to help build our team culture.


You’ll focus on consumer led global retail concepts, global stores, seasonal retail initiatives and the evolution of the Jordan retail business. Under the direction of a Design Director, you will collaborate in the design and development of innovative and original retail environments globally that reflect Jordan Brand’s design ethos and enhance the consumer retail experience. You will create original retail store design solutions and develop concepts that support retail business plans. You’ll design in collaboration with the design team or independently, to complete the most technically challenging and creative individual projects. Across Jordan Design, you'll help craft all aspects of the look and feel of the brand at retail.


You will report directly to the Jordan Retail Design – Design Director, while regularly partnering with other design and cross-functional team members including Jordan Direct Studio, Retail Concepts, One Creative Studio, Stores Marketing, Footwear and Apparel Designers, and Brand Managers.
