Kendra Scott is an Austin, TX-based fashion-lifestyle brand. Inspired by the life of its founder by the same name, Kendra Scott is known for use of color and quality gemstones, as well as innovative pieces like the Color Bar Experience. The company also puts a major focus on giving back to the communities it serves.
One of the many things Kendra Scott has done very well is integrating technology into its business. By creating a smart and savvy online presence, the company has skyrocketed to success.

Our IT team acts as a direct pipeline that connects them to our brand. I constantly challenge my team to continue to innovate the way we bring Family, Fashion, and Philanthropy to our customers."
Celeste, a Field Development Manager, summed up life at Kendra Scott, and just how great a place it is, saying, "Kendra Scott has grown so much over the past seven years but our amazing culture has endured. Family, both at work and at home, is truly a priority, we celebrate doing good for our communities, and we create the most amazing yet attainable products."
Kendra Scott was founded on three things: Family, Fashion and Philanthropy. The company has done such a successful job of incorporating these values into the life of their employees and the work that they do. The company gives in three main ways:
Matt, a Senior Merchandise Planner, said, "Kendra measures the success of the company by how we give back to our community, and our executives are transparent with our core values and goals. Being able to grow professionally while having fun is a big reason I enjoy going to work."
"Kendra Scott is the first company that I've worked for that truly portrays a family culture. The people here are incredibly talented and are one of a kind. We get to work on amazing products, and are given the opportunity to 'do good' by giving back," Maddie, Director of Product Development.
To give a small insight into the family-like culture at Kendra Scott, here is what JJ, a Store Technology Analyst, said: "Our Home Office vibe is exactly how it sounds -- it feels like home. It's exciting because you never know what daily surprises are in store -- Kendra could be walking around in a unicorn costume giving everyone hugs or our Fun Committee may be hosting a happy hour in the cafe to relieve the stress of a busy week. This place is truly one of a kind."
When Kendra Scott employees say that their co-workers feel like a second family, it isn't just cheap talk. Kendra Scott, the CEO, has cultivated an environment where every employee feels a part of the bigger picture. That is done through empowering employees' input in the company, creativity and pushing collaboration.
Megan, Vice President of E-Commerce, said, "Kendra Scott is such an exciting place to work -- every day is an opportunity to make a positive impact. All team members are encouraged to make recommendations and to roll up their sleeves and make those recommendations a reality."
Kendra Scott employees have some long-standing office traditions that they love to keep alive every year. For example, Halloween is a big time of the year in the office.
