Junior Marketing Designer

About Mac & Mia:
Mac & Mia was founded by Marie Tillman. As a working mom, Marie struggled to find beautiful, high-quality clothing options without spending a ton of time shopping. Mac & Mia was created as Marie began to discover and curate unique styles from boutique brands around the world. Today, Mac & Mia saves busy parents time while delivering a fun and convenient shopping experience for families. Mac & Mia customers take a brief style quiz before requesting a box for their child. They are then paired with a stylist who handpicks 6-9 items for the child. The items are shipped to the customer and they can keep what they love and send back the rest. Mac & Mia currently serves children from ages newborn to 10 years old.
