Thank you for your interest in working at CNOC Outdoors. We love to meet new people!

We are a gear junkie, hiker trash group of backpackers, and our tiny company is in its fourth year of making great backpacking gear. We look for ways that defy industry standards, tighten supply chain gaps, and bring the most innovative yet simple solutions to outdoor adventurers. We are down-to-earth gear geeks, so if you resonate with this mindset, we would love to hear from you!

Sales and Marketing Manager

We at CNOC Outdoors are looking for a Sales and Marketing Manager who is a hustler at heart and loves interacting with people. This is a job for someone who likes high pressure, fast paced work environments all while having a great time geeking over gear. We’re looking for someone to particularly focus on digital DTC sales with a touch of marketing, design and whatever additional added value you might bring to the table!

You don’t need to have outdoors industry experience, but you do have to be a backpacker who has been active (at minimum) as a customer in the outdoors retail market and we expect you to know your gear. You also need to have sales and marketing experience. Ideally, you’re ready to combine these two passions and make some magic at CNOC.

This is a hands-on position while also creating long term strategy for the company. You will need to be comfortable writing copy, tweak websites, build flows and so much more to be part of the company’s growth. Networking and relationship building is a key part of our past growth and you should be ready to have a lot of interaction with people: online, on calls and even in person.
