Billabong Jobs

Global HRIS Analyst

Location: Irvine, CA
Job Type: Full Time
Date Posted: Jun 20


Billabong was founded on Australia's Gold Coast in 1973 by surfer and surfboard shaper Gordon Merchant. Those early days were rather inauspicious, with Gordon designing boardshorts at home, cutting them out on the kitchen table and then carting the finished product around to the local surf shop to sell. 

From these humble beginnings, Billabong was born.

The Billabong Group is now one of the largest boardsport and lifestyle brands in the world. We have an impressive team of unique brands including Billabong, RVCA, Element, Von Zipper, Honolua and Xcel.
