About Speedo

Founded in Bondi, Australia in 1928 by an immigrant Scotsman, Speedo has been challenging convention and breaking records since day one. Within a year we had set our first world record in the world's first non-woollen suit, and our winning streak began.
No stranger to controversy, Speedo were the first to bare arms… and ankles and knees too; Placing performance over modesty, our designers stripped away inch after inch of cloth in pursuit of speed. In 1932, aged just 16, Clare Dennis won Olympic Gold at the Los Angeles Games only to have her medal challenged for ‘indecency’ after showing too much shoulder-blade in her Speedo Racerback suit. She kept her medal, and we kept pushing forwards.
In 2008, fuelled by eighty years of innovation, Speedo swept the board at the Beijing Olympics winning 89% of all medals. It then took FINA and the IOC to step in to ban our technology to give our competition some hope of competing.
In 2020 we bought the licence for our North American distribution, bringing the world’s biggest swimwear market back into the fold, and paving the way for a truly global brand strategy with the competitive advantage that our scale brings.
Today, Speedo is the world’s #1 swimwear brand, with an incredibly exciting future ahead of it. But, whilst we’re leading the pack, we’re never content to sit on our hands. There are still many consumers yet to reach, many markets yet to win, and a lifetime of gold medals to chase.
We’re looking for the world’s best talent to join the world’s number one swimwear brand as we take it to the next level. Come and be part of it.
