ThinLine is always looking for amazing people to join our team.
The ability to talk horses and tack is of course very important but it is the quality of your passion and drive that will make your application. We are a very small team- 5 primary team members comprise our business. As you can imagine, working at ThinLine is more like having another family. And that means that we rely upon each other. Are you up for being a critical member?
Working in an entrepreneurial company is very different from working in a large corporation, and we love it! But is it for you? You must be a multitasker.

Mission alignment. ThinLine was created to make life better.
