Business is booming at one of the most iconic sneaker companies — and it’s hiring to keep pace.
According to Nike’s fiscal reporting, fourth-quarter revenues at the end of 2021 totaled $12.3 billion. That marked a 96% increase from 2020, with annual profits jumping to 196%, the largest gain in the company’s history, according to Forbes. This is a big comeback for the sneaker brand. Nike shut down many of its US and Global stores between the months of March and May of 2020, when the pandemic first began.
“Nike’s strong results this quarter and full fiscal year demonstrate Nike’s unique competitive advantage and deep connection with consumers all over the world,” John Donahoe, the president and CEO of Nike, said in the company’s fiscal report, calling 2021 a “pivotal year” for the company.
“Fueled by our momentum, we continue to invest in innovation and our digital leadership to set the foundation for Nike’s long-term growth,” he added.
Though some employees have reported lower morale and higher attrition because of return-to-office policies, the company is growing. It’s hiring for over 2,000 roles across design, data analytics, marketing, and engineering. Many of the US jobs are at the company’s headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, but the retailer recently announced it would give workers up to four weeks of fully remote work per year.
Nike is also hiring for their new technology offices in San Fransico and Atlanta.
Nike employees have grumbled for years about being underpaid relative to workers at other companies in similar jobs. In documents recently unsealed as part of an ongoing gender discrimination lawsuit, multiple Nike recruiters and human resources experts testified that the company sets salaries for new hires between 85% and 110% of the company-defined pay range for a job.
While Nike doesn’t share payroll information publicly, Insider matched the salary of employees holding the same job titles to those listed on the careers page using federally disclosed data on Nike’s 2021 H-1B visa holders. (To research more roles or companies, explore Insider’s salary database.)
