Cross-country Travel Opportunity with Cotopaxi, the 'Gear for Good' Company

Can you see yourself traveling this open road?
If so the job opportunity (below) might be for you!

"Get Your Kicks...on Route 66." 
"See the USA in Your Chevrolet."
          These slogans from the mid-20th century represent America's love affair with the open road.

          Road trips are synonymous with independence, discovery and adventure.  Because of my blog's focus on adventure travel and exploration in the United States, I was encouraged by the Cotopaxi online community to share their "Road Warrior" position.

          Who is Cotopaxi?  Founded in 2013 in Salt Lake City, Utah, Cotopaxi designs, makes and sells outdoor gear, like these travel backpacks. Their stated goal is to make great gear, and to help alleviate poverty in the developing world by donating 2% of their revenue to promote health, education, and job skills training.

          A brief description of the employment opportunity:

          We’re on a mission to hire someone for the open road. He or she will travel around the country and visit every major U.S. city, living the ultimate adventure from coast to coast all while sharing their experience. They’ll travel around the country, encouraging people to find adventure and do good.
          Wow.  At one point in my life I would have jumped at the chance to apply for this job.  Which is why I agreed to write this post and spread the word about this exciting cross-country travel opportunity.


          Readers, are you interesting in applying for the Field Marketing Specialist job below?  And if not, do you know of friends or family who are looking for a unique position with a dynamic, socially conscious outdoor gear company?  If so, please forward the following information to them.

If you, a friend or family member are interested in applying for this position visit and click on Field Marketing Specialist under "Current Openings".


  1. An extremely interesting and unique opportunity for the right person at the right point in their life. At the moment, I'm unable to come up with anyone in my circle of contacts who might be interested in this, but will keep it in the back of my mind and pass it along if anyone comes to mind.


    1. Thanks John.
      As someone who has driven across the country multiple times, I have to say that this city-to-city journey sounds like fun—I would have loved it if an opportunity like this one had come my way when I was young and single!

  2. Wow, never imagined that there could actually be a job opportunity like this!

  3. What fun! I'd be curious to read the blog of this intrepid travel-blogger.

    1. I would imagine that when the position is filled we'll be able to go to Cotopaxi's website and read the Road Warrior's travel blog. Should be fun!
