Greenpoint Flagship Sales Associate

Quaker Marine Supply Co was founded in 1949 by Joe Kadison, a Coast Guard Veteran in Philadelphia. The company began as an outfitter specializing in marine hardware and clothing. Starting in the sixties, QMS became known for its long-brimmed caps, notably the Swordfish and the Oysterman, with its patent-leather bill. The company initially was known for serving the sea-loving crowd and now has expanded our products to reach a variety of audiences. Our most notable customer who one may know is Ernest Hemingway, who wore it duck hunting in Idaho and sport fishing in Cuba and Key West.

The new Quaker Marine Supply Co is headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, and has the vision of creating clothing that will both turn heads at a pool party and stand up to years of saltwater adventuring as we offer a distinctive, irreverent take on classic East Coast summer style.

We are opening up our first ever flagship store in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and are searching for part-time and full-time Sales Associates who are energetic, passionate, engaging, curious, and kind to help kick off the launch of our new store.
