ABOUT US:

Peak Design is a product design company. We make an ever-growing line of durable, sustainably-built bags, travel gear, camera gear, and phone accessories for a wide swath of commuters, creatives, and adventurers. In an increasingly digital world, we think it’s pretty rad to make actual physical things that people use (and love—our customers tend to be loyal and passionate).

We were born on Kickstarter, and we continue to launch products there. We have no outside investors, which gives us the unique freedom to pursue that which makes us happy. In fact, our company mission statement has a simple preamble: the purpose of Peak Design is to create happy, meaningful lives for our employees.

There are currently 50 of us. We love our jobs, we love each other, and we couldn’t be more stoked for the future of our company. We believe a diversity of perspectives and backgrounds creates a stronger and more creative work environment. We’re committed to equality and inclusivity across race, gender, age, religion, identity, and experience.

We also have lots and lots of fun.

Workplace Operations

You should already know, or be self-sufficient enough to figure out: how to turn a wrench, operate a VPN, maintain a 3D printer, and keep a variety of plants alive. You’ll be expected to execute a breadth of tasks but also take initiative - you look around a room and can’t help but identify how it could run more smoothly.

- Oversight of incoming/outgoing packages, shipping, mail retrieval and sorting.
- Onboard new hires to the office environment; coordinate and assign desks, keys, and other hardware/equipment. 
- Support the planning and execution of on-site events and preparing the office for quarterly in office team weeks.
- Liaise with building management, handymen, cleaners, shipping carriers, and other vendors as needed. 
-  Support departments and teams with miscellaneous in-office needs: e.g. Wholesale team with pre- and post- trade show preparations such as organizing, loading, and unloading product and supplies. And video production team with shoot load and setup.
- Oversee new hire laptop and monitor procurement; support onboarding and offboarding of employees with physical tech infrastructure.
- Support office tech infrastructure - WiFi, meeting rooms, printers, and 3D printers and ad hoc team member tech issues.

Plus: developing new systems, processes, and policies related to the execution and innovation of all of the above.
