        Who We Are

        Mission

        To help people show love and appreciation through convenient, innovative, and meaningful gifts that honor God.

        Core Values

        People First

        Great vision paired with the wrong people will produce poor results. Our people are our greatest asset, and each person plays a vital role in the success of the company. We care for our people not as a business resource but on a human level. Treating one another with love, kindness, and respect is key in the development of our business and the personal experience each person has at Simple & Sentimental. We care about who touches our business, what matters to them, and the people that matter to them.

        Work Environment

        A workplace thrives when it is filled with encouragement, positivity, and respect. Our team comes into work each day ready to optimistically pursue their part in the mission of Simple & Sentimental, knowing their team is there to cheer them on and support them.

        Integrity

        Honesty is essential to creating trust within our team and our customers. We do the right thing no matter what. We are transparent by communicating internally and externally with candor and respect.

        Think Big

        Being the world’s leading personalized gift company requires that we are constantly innovating and pushing ourselves to do better for our team, our suppliers, our customers, and anyone who touches our business.

        Customer Success is Our Success

        When customers win, we win. We are on the same team with the same end-goal in mind: creating an unforgettable moment that makes someone feel loved. We are willing to go above and beyond to serve our customers. When faced with a hurdle, we jump.

        Culture

        Our work culture stems from our mission and core values. We exist to help people give great gifts, and we strive to be the best at it. 

        GROWTH

        Simple & Sentimental started as a hobby in Taylor Walden's dorm room in the fall of 2016. 5 short years later, it has grown into a nationally recognized personalized gift company with hundreds of thousands of customers, one of the top-performing Etsy shops in the world, and countless personalized gifts. 

        For our team, this kind of growth looks like constant innovation, opportunities to come up with new ideas and engage in company growth, and career growth within the company. As we grow we focus on promoting from within and helping our team grow personally and professionally along with the company.

        FUN

        If you're going to spend most of your life working, you might as well have fun doing it. At the S&S office, you'll find us playing games at lunch, playing games + competing to have another tally put next to our name on the company game board, and pulling a prank or two (or five) on our coworkers. We have annual competitions like "Conspiracy Theory Day" where each staff member creates a powerpoint on a conspiracy theory and presents to one another to see who has the best argument. Every Friday is "Disney Friday", where the production team plays Disney music all day and watches a Disney movie together at lunch.

        We get our work done and we do it quickly, efficiently, and effectively, but we like to have fun while we're doing it. If you've got a positive attitude, a good sense of humor, and a great work ethic, you'll fit right in.

        FINDING BALANCE

        While we strive to create excellent gifts and be the best at what we do, we know that work isn't everything. Our leadership team strives to help all employees have healthy work/rest balance. At Simple & Sentimental we offer unlimited sick leave, paid vacation, and paid holidays. Most retail companies are open on holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas, but not here. We are closed and pay our team on all major holidays because we know how important spending time with family is to our team.

        Most weeks, full-time employees work no more than 40 hours per week. That doesn't mean that we don't crank out extra hours during our busy season or work extra to catch up, but the majority of the time our team is able to get their jobs done within 40 hours. At the end of the day, our team works together to get the job done and helps one another to do so.
