Job Description
Our people are good at what they do. We are adventurers and explorers; designers and developers. We are creative, driven and detail-oriented. We find beauty in boldness and style in simplicity. And we’re united by a shared goal: to create unique gear that looks as good as it works and comes back in one piece—trip after trip, year after year.

When we’re not creating, you can find us testing our gear out in the wild. Our ranks include rock climbers, cyclists, anglers, thru-hikers, runners, ping pong (or... table tennis) champions, gardeners, skateboarders, globetrotters and so much more.

We're looking for a Product Line Manager who shares what we're about and wants to do great work.
