Analyst (Sustainability)

Levi Strauss & Co.

San Francisco, CA, US


We believe that clothes — and how you make them — can make a difference.


Since 1853, we’ve been obsessed with innovation to meet people’s needs. We invented the first blue jean. And we reinvented khaki pants. We pioneered labor and environmental guidelines for our manufacturing partners. And we work to build sustainability into everything we do. As the company executes toward our 2020 and 2025 corporate sustainability targets, there is an increasing need for measurement, tracking, and reporting.  If you’re a proactive, results-driven person who loves to dive into the weeds and strives to understand the story behind our data, you will thrive in this role.


A company doesn’t last 160 years by standing still. It endures by reinventing itself, striving to delight its consumers, winning in the marketplace, and by remaining true to its values. We employ more than 17,000 people around the world – supporting great brands, including Levi’s®, Dockers®, and Denizen®. Our employees are committed to innovation, creativity, and collaboration.
