Love What You Do.


Our collaborative spirit leaves little room for bureaucracy and cumbersome rules. Instead we keep it simple, take accountability, solve problems and ultimately do the right thing. We believe in each other.

New Dallas Retail Location

Our retail stores are beautifully designed spaces filled with natural light and positive energy, where you will feel at home. Join our team of diverse people who are passionate about working together to help customers create homes they love.


Be part of opening our Dallas store in early 2018 in the Knox-Henderson District just north of downtown Dallas. With anticipated annual market sales of $12 million and a team of 10 to 12 professionals, we are looking for an experienced Retail Manager to open our 11,700 square-foot showroom and build a robust business that reflects Room & Board’s brand and Midwest values.


Why you’ll love working here:

  • We’re rooted in philosophies, not rules, so you are empowered to make decisions
  • Lead and inspire high caliber design and sales professionals to engage in work that they are passionate about while offering an incredible customer experience and helping customers create homes they love
  • Be a part of a collaborative environment where meaningful relationships and partnerships matter
  • Surround yourself with beautifully designed long-lasting furniture and accessories
  • Enjoy a strong competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package including three weeks of paid vacation


About our Retail Manager

We are seeking a proven manager who will build a high caliber team of career-minded design/sales professionals. This individual will ensure that this talented and diverse team is confident in solution-based selling and is empowered to make decisions in the best interest of the customer. 


The successful candidate will also have a passion for modern design and bring an understanding of the Dallas customer -- how they live and where they shop. This individual will see collaboration as more important than competition and foster this within the team. The Retail Manager will be strategic in their understanding of the market, customers and competition to achieve results.


Position Requirements

  • Responsible for the financial success of the Dallas market, he or she will be accountable for market sales, including revenue generated in the store, online and through our Customer Care channel for the market.
  • Lead, inspire, develop and challenge the team to continually grow in their responsibilities and contributions to the success of the Dallas team.
  • Oversee showroom merchandising to meet the unique needs of the Dallas customer base. 
  • Inspire rich personal connections to the Room & Board brand that continue to create a growing base of loyal customers.
  • Create and host meaningful store events or event sponsorships that provide opportunities for us to strengthen relationships with existing customers and reach new customers. 
  • Confidence with technology and openness to innovative ways of working as we keep pace with the changing needs and expectations of our customers and business will be paramount to the success of this role.

Preferred Qualifications

Given the scope and expectations of this role we are seeking someone with a minimum of 10 years retail leadership experience. Historically we have found that our most successful leaders have left the high travel and feverish pace of regional roles for equal challenges, autonomy and rewards as a Retail Manager at Room & Board.
