At adidas Group, our love of sport drives who we are and what we do. But just as a ball is more than leather and thread, and a shoe more than padding and plastic, we are bigger than our products. We don’t just work to create faster shoes and lighter fabrics: We strive to help athletes everywhere perform their best. We believe that it’s hard work inventing the future of sport, and that’s why we love it; that when you push your limits, you make it possible for others to push theirs.
At adidas Group, this drive is what connects us, whether we’re working for TaylorMade, adidas, or Reebok. We’re all working toward a future motivated by passion, original thinking, and the desire to build upon a proud legacy.
No matter what you do, or what country or city you do it in, your work helps make greatness possible.
