About Our Culture

Before you join the Amour Vert family, there are a few things you should know about us:

We work fast. Really fast.
We don’t have red tape around here. If you have a good idea, we want to make it happen today. We move extremely fast at Amour Vert, act quickly on information, and don’t stop until the problem is solved. Forget everything you know about how long it takes to turn something around — we’ll beat that.

We never stop looking for ways to improve.
We never accept that the current way of doing something is the best way. We’re relentlessly looking to innovate and improve every product, project, and process — all the time, and in all departments.

We're all leaders.
Each department is small but powerful, because every person at Amour Vert has an enormous impact everyday. Regardless of level — and trust us, we don't have many — everyone acts like a leader, takes ownership over their projects, and has the power to meaningfully change our business for the better.

We help each other out.
We know we're so much better when we support each other and collaborate closely. Whether we’re discussing how best to approach a new initiative, how to solve an unexpected problem, or simply pitching in to help a fellow teammate or department in need — we’re all in on this together.

We take our customer's breath away.
In all our jobs, we ask ourselves everyday how we can take our customer's breath away. While it starts with our sustainable and ethically made products, it includes everything from creating a seamless online and offline shopping experience, to providing an accurate size guide, to getting her package delivered early. We never stop going the extra mile for our customers.
