Diesel is currently hiring a Credit Analyst to join our Credit Team at our corporate office: 220 West 19th Street, New York, NY 10011

Diesel is an innovative international lifestyle company, producing a wide-ranging collection of jeans, clothing and accessories.

The collections include: Diesel (recently "rebooted" by the arrival of Nicola Formichetti as its Artistic Director), Diesel Black Gold (the contemporary line designed by Andreas Melbostad), 55DSL (a streetwear collection under the creative direction of Andrea Rosso) and Diesel Kid.

Diesel is not just apparel and denim: it's a lifestyle, which has been interpreted through licenses with leading companies to develop watches and jewellery (with Fossil), eyewear (with Marcolin), fragrances (with L'Oréal), helmets (with AGV), headphones (with Monster), bikes (with Pinarello) and a complete home collection (with Foscarini, Moroso, Zucchi and Scavolini).
