Outbound Collective Jobs

The Outbound Collective is a community-driven digital platform (web, iOS/Android apps) for discovering and sharing the best local outdoor adventures, basecamps, and stories. Our mission is to get everyone outside. Each year, 15M+ users rely on us to get outside, reconnect, sweat, learn, and have fun. We celebrate the simplicity and importance of everyday adventures, whether just down the street or across the globe. There is no after-work stroll too small, or far-off mountain too tall. We love all of it, and we welcome everyone who seeks the same.

We’re a small, bootstrapped team committed to building a better, more inclusive home for the modern outdoors. We are 100% remote (pre-and-post pandemic) and primarily asynchronous.

We are committed to building a team that reflects the diverse backgrounds, cultures, perspectives, and experiences of the community that we seek to build. The Outbound Collective is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
