New Balance has a history of 100 years of enduring performance and is still running strong today.

New Balance has been responsible for a number of firsts in our industry through the continual improvement and advancement of our products and a relentless drive to achieve a better fit and performance for all.

It’s an approach to technology that puts us face to face with world class athletes and everyday athletes alike. It keeps us focused on the goal we share with everyone who runs, walks, or competes. The same attention that is placed on our athletic shoes and apparel is also placed on our associates. We seek talented individuals that fit into our team-oriented atmosphere. Additionally, we are proud to have an environment that offers the comfort of a true work/life Balance.
