Do you love working with non-developers, hearing their ideas, and figuring out how to turn them into

an online-reality? Can you build a full retail website from scratch, front and backends? Do you love

gear as much as you love code? If so, this job is for you.

This is an excellent chance to join a company that is pushing the creative retail envelope in the

Outdoor Industry. You will be a part of a small development team and asked to do it all (when it comes to code/development). You are expected to create and then work to project timelines.

Professional accountability, punctuality, and strong communication are as important as the quality of your code.

We’re open to you working virtually, but having you in Bend would be ideal. Bend is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise and now you can work for a company that embodies the Central Oregon lifestyle. So come on, we can’t wait to see what you can accomplish with us!
