Gap – Why Work For Us?


We’ve taken iconic American style from the streets of San Francisco around the world. Where will we go next? That’s up to you.


In 1969, Don and Doris Fisher opened the first Gap store on Ocean Avenue in San Francisco. They wanted to make it easier to find a great pair of jeans, and they did. Their denim and records store was a hit, and today we’re the world’s most iconic American brand.

We’re represented in more than 1400 stores in over 40 countries, and online. Our unique aesthetic is optimistic cool, elevated American style. We believe in staying true to our heritage while creating what’s next.

Don and Doris Fisher always wanted to “do more than sell clothes,” and today we’re leaders in employee volunteering and social impact.

Raise Every Voice: P.A.C.E.

By 2020, one million women will gain the skills and confidence to change the course of their lives through the Gap Inc. P.A.C.E. program.

Every year, we dedicate a portion of our profits to fund P.A.C.E (Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement), our decade-strong education program that gives women who make our clothes the tools, knowledge and confidence to raise their voices.
