About: MATCHESFASHION.COM is the global luxury shopping destination that brings together over 400 designers with seamless integration of physical and digital customer touchpoints. We are defining the future of luxury commerce with a global website, mobile apps, retail stores, private shopping, VIP events and 24/7 customer care and MyStylist teams. We ship to 176 countries, have over 70 million site visits and 90% of our sales are now online. Now 30 years old, we retain a forward-looking focus on innovation and emerging talent. We are looking for someone entrepreneurial, ambitious and humble to come and be a part of the fastest growing luxury eCommerce brand in the world.

In our experience, there are two types of Interns.

Those who know exactly what they want: a dream job in fashion. They eat, breathe, speak and dream fashion. And then there are those who don’t. Those who are still figuring it out and for whom fashion is just perhaps one of the possible career paths, who don’t yet know what their dream job looks like but cannot wait to find out.

Truth is, regardless of whether you know your Gucci from your Ganni, or you never really thought of Luxury Fashion as your life calling, only one type of Intern belongs at MATCHESFASHION, and that’s the one who is genuinely excited about their future. 

We are looking for interns who look forward to getting into the thick of it, who are not afraid of stepping out of their comfort zone. The one that is curious and who craves opportunities to learn and gain new skills. The one who looks forward to making new connections, engaging in a variety of projects, and who is motivated to give their best and make the most of their time at MATCHESFASHION. 

If you are starting out your career and are passionate about discovering who you are and what you want to become, there is a place for you at MATCHESFASHION.  We look forward to meeting you.
