Wanna Work For Yeezy? Kanye West Is Hiring

If you've always dreamed of working for what some would charitably describe as a larger-than-life megalomaniac rapper, producer, songwriter, entrepreneur, sometime reality TV star guest, and fashion designer, here's your chance.

It appears, according to a recent spate of job ads posted by the Adidas Group, that Yeezy is hiring 17 new people, including a Senior PR Manager responsible for entertainment, product promotions, and "grassroots initiatives," a Senior Men's Apparel Developer tasked with R&Ds on new fabrics and materials, and a Design Director to help develop Yeezy's brand image.

Adidas Yeezy is, of course, the official collaboration between West and the athletic wear giant: you can bet the rash of job postings have to do with late June's announcement of new, long-term contract to expand the line into more stores and new markets. Candidates, take note: you're going have some superhumanly amazing taste to make the cut.

As the man himself said:

"I believe that bad taste is vulgar. It's like cursing. I think the world can be saved through design, because what is the most distasteful thing someone can do? Kill someone. So, good taste is the opposite of that."

That clears things up. Bon chance, ambitious job applicants.

These cannabis executives dish on the reactions they get when they say they work in the space, and how those reactions have evolved over the past 10 years.
