Kanye Says Yeezy Will Hire 160 People by End of 2018
Looking for a job? Go work for Kanye at ‘the 2nd fastest-growing company in history’: Yeezy. After saying he brought home fatter stacks than Michael Jordan, Ye tweeted that he would be hiring 160 people by the end of the year.
We have 160 positions to fill by the end of the year. Yeezy will hit a billion dollars this year. It is the 2nd fastest growing company in history. It is a unicorn on its way to becoming a decacorn.— ye (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
Those who join the company will be required to have ‘the most genius-level talents’ and can look forward to rubbing shoulders with Deborah Palmer Keiser, Gap’s former vice president of sourcing services and Yeezy’s new chief supply chain officer.
However, adidas’ employment website hasn't corroborated Kanye’s claims. Instead of 160 roles, they’ve listed two. Currently, you can apply to be Yeezy brand’s senior developer of apparel, or senior pattern engineer for footwear. Maybe the remaining jobs are yet to be listed and this hiring spree is another of Kanye’s leaks. If so — and if Yeezy is growing as quickly as Kanye claims — applicants might be wise to work stock options into their contracts.
