Culture & Jobs at Floyd

We believe furniture should be made for the home, not the landfill.

Working at Floyd

Hi, we’re Floyd. We began in 2013 out of a reaction to disposable furniture. We design products that are thoughtful, high quality, & built to last. Floyd products are in the homes of over 60,000 customers, and today we’re one of the fastest growing furniture brands in the country.

We’re a team in Detroit (and beyond) of passionate & determined folks. We appreciate thoughtful design, whether it’s a great sofa or a vegetable peeler. We care about the environment & the impact we can make.

As with our products, we’re building a company for the long term. That means sticking by our designs year over year, ensuring sustainability is brought to everything we do, and building a culture where our people can develop & thrive over time. Whether we are in the office or working remotely, we aspire to and actively work on building an inclusive and inspiring work culture. Teams at Floyd are made up of people who model empathy, self-awareness, resourcefulness, and creative problem solving. We genuinely enjoy working with each other.

If you’re up for the adventure, we’d love to hear from you!
