At REI, we believe a life outdoors is a life well lived!

What began as a group of 23 mountain climbing buddies in 1938 is now the nation's largest consumer co-op. But no matter how large REI grows, our roots remain firmly planted in the outdoors and in our dedication to our mission: To inspire, educate and outfit for a lifetime of outdoor adventure and stewardship.

REI is more than just a place to work. It’s a fun, inspired culture where a rare balance is struck between professional duties and personal adventures. Whether you camp, paddle board, climb mountains or simply prefer chilling at the local park, the outdoors connects us all. Then factor in REI’s stewardship, dedication to sustainability and contributions to our customers’ loved outdoor spaces and you have a recipe for some passionate employees. These shared employee values is what has ultimately landed REI on Fortune Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list for 18 years in a row. If working for a purpose driven co-op is a priority for you please consider joining our team.
