We're looking for people with positive attitudes, an eagerness to learn, and the ability to hustle in a fast-paced work environment!
We love what we do and we're looking for people who are as excited about our mission as we are. Prior floral experience isn't required. What we DO require is a strong work ethic, positive attitude, and the ability to hustle. Not to scare you, but we want to be completely transparent with our expectations – most jobs at Farmgirl are not strictly desk jobs. We all hustle hard – often on our feet – for a significant portion of each day. And we have a lot of fun while we do it. We all help out in other areas as needed, so the ability to flex is extremely important. But, did I mention that we have fun too? Because we do!

Farmgirl Flowers

Unlike a local florist, we've built our process for speed and efficiency. We make orders at high volumes and that means we've built our production floors similar to that of automobile assembly lines where our designers and fulfillment teams make hundreds of the same bouquets every day in different stations. This means that customizations aren't built into our model. We don't like to say no (believe us, it's against our nature) but in order to offer these gorgeous blooms to the contiguous 48 United States, we can't offer special requests. (If you're looking for a special event, you can reach out to our events team at [email protected] and they have additional options for customizations!
