Through sport we have the power to change lives
At adidas Porto, we live and breathe sports. Many employees start or end their days by working up a sweat at our in-house gym. The office is filled with a dynamic, vibrant atmosphere – and nearby green spaces mean there’s always time for a lunchtime walk, run or picnic.
Just like in sports, our work is all about pushing our own limits to reach new heights, together. We seek inspiration from our favourite athletes to overcome daily challenges. And our formula for winning teams is simple: we thrive on openness, honesty and trust.
Careers without borders
Diverse teams encourage collaboration, creativity and confidence. And at our fast-growing hub in Porto, we’re proud to represent more than 17 nationalities. Our modern office in Tecmaia Science and Technology Park can be easily reached by bus, metro, shuttle or car. Plus, with the airport located just a five-minute drive away, we really do have the world on our doorstep.
We encourage our talents to pursue internal opportunities at other adidas locations – but we also open our doors to colleagues from across the adidas group. When hiring new courageous creators, we focus less on where you’re currently based. What matters most are the skills, drive and fresh perspectives you can bring to the table.
Pioneering the future of work
We want our employees to collaborate, grow and have fun while doing so. That’s why adidas Porto features plenty of spaces to relax and unwind – whether that’s by challenging a colleague to a game of table football, or by watching a match together on one of the big screens.
Creativity isn’t a switch you can flip on or off, so we give our people the freedom to explore and grow in their own ways. You won’t find any suits or ties here – our trailblazers lead the way in adidas trainers. We’ve introduced flexible working hours to encourage a healthy work-life balance. And we’re proud to have senior leaders who are just as approachable as they are experienced.
Sport needs a space
The energetic atmosphere at adidas Porto extends from the office floor to the pitch. Every Friday at 11am sharp, we push each other to new heights during our weekly Sports Hour. Our fearless football team has been known to nab the odd trophy or two, while the adiRunners group will motivate you to run the extra mile, no matter the weather.
It’s not about winning or being the best – it’s about creating a work environment where people have fun, make new friends and challenge each other. Just pick a sport you like to play and join a team of like-minded exercise enthusiasts.
Collaborating with those who inspire us
Any team is only as strong as its individual players. It’s why we strive to support and empower each other wherever possible. That goes for our team at adidas Porto, as well as for the wider community.
We’re serious about our social responsibilities. And we’re very lucky to have employees who regularly dedicate their time to initiatives at local schools and food banks. Plus, we also take part in routine beach clean-ups to help preserve the beautiful Atlantic coast just a few miles from the city.
The future runs on fresh and diverse perspectives
We believe that innovation begins by looking at a problem from a different angle. We welcome people with unique backgrounds and identities, and encourage everyone to be their authentic self. Our diversity fuels curiosity, awareness and growth. It drives us forward.
At adidas Porto, our creative thinkers come from all walks of life, but we’re united by a desire to create something new. We aim high and challenge the status quo. Because only by pushing boundaries can we can shape the future of sport, together.
