Job Description

As the world’s premier company for insulated products, Hydro Flask began with a challenge: to create a reusable water bottle that truly performs in any environment. It had to keep hot liquids hot and cold liquids cold. Period.

We are hiring a Senior Product Developer - Soft Goods who will be responsible for developing commercially viable and consumer relevant products that are leading in design, innovation, function, and quality.

What You’ll Be Doing:

In this role, you’ll play a significant role as a team member in the product creation process, responsible for coordinating projects from brief to final confirmation of product. This person will partner with the Soft Goods Category Manager, Industrial Design, External Agencies, and overseas Development/Manufacturing to deliver product, margin, and quality objectives while meeting calendar deadlines.

Working for Hydro Flask:

Do you love a challenge? We are a group of hard-working people and outdoor enthusiasts who are constantly putting our products to the test and delivering “ahh” experiences to active consumers worldwide. As an employer, we live our brand values every day, supporting a reliable, playful, adaptive, honest, inclusive, and unconventional culture where employees can learn, thrive, and grow.

Hydro Flask is based in Bend, Oregon. There's desert to the east of town and mountains to the west. Our geography says a lot about who we are. We bike, ski, run and hike. We grill burgers and share growlers in our backyards. We don't hold back. That may sound like the weekend, but that's how we live every day of the year. We don't accept lukewarm in our attitude toward life or in the temperature of whatever we happen to be drinking. We want to taste the fullness life has to offer and share it with the world. That's why we are committed to making tomorrow better - our lives, our products, our experiences. We believe nothing in life should be lukewarm.

Hydro Flask not only gets what our customers want, we also know that providing an awesome environment for our employees (who are also our customers!) is vital for our long-term success. Along with a casual, dog-friendly environment in our beautiful headquarters in Bend, Oregon, we ensure our employees are taken care of with a strong compensation and benefits package, including healthcare, 401(k) with company match, PTO, annual incentive pay, a sabbatical program, free lunch every Friday, and of course, product!
