About NEMO EQUIPMENT, INC
A job at NEMO is probably different from any job you’ve ever had. It’s probably a lot like the job you’ve always wished you could have. In fact, for the right person, it’s not really like a job at all.
Remember the feeling of camaraderie that comes with sharing an epic adventure with your best friends? Have you ever turned to a friend while walking in steps you were quite sure had never been taken and remarked that there was absolutely nowhere you would rather be — nothing you would rather be doing? That’s the feeling of working at NEMO.
Cam Brensinger started NEMO Equipment, Inc. in 2002 as his senior thesis project in design school while simultaneously working at MIT. Three days after graduation, he opened the NEMO headquarters in an old mill building in Nashua, NH. For two years, Cam focused on learning to sew, pattern, and build prototypes of his first patent-pending tent designs. He launched the brand in 2004 at the Summer Market Outdoor Retailer show and quickly began winning awards for design and innovation. NEMO was the overall winner of the ISPO Brand New Award in 2005 and named by TIME and Popular Science as among the 100 best inventions of the year. That began a ...train of awards and PR that has only accelerated since then. NEMO a truly product-driven brand and that’s helped them outpace their competition in year-over-year growth, steadily taking market share in their trajectory toward quickly becoming an iconic outdoor industry brand.
The team at NEMO is in love with the outdoors and seeks to inspire engagement with outdoor adventure through thoughtful design. They believe great product is part of the equation of enjoying adventure and stands to have a big effect on the experience of being outdoors. They are conscious of how much product there already is in the world and feel a responsibility to make only product that is unique, offers superior features, and is built to last.
A sticker on one of the conference tables at NEMO reads, “Design Like You Give a Damn” and that about sums up the ethos at this company. Everyone on the design team works hands-on to sew samples or build prototypes. There’s always a buzz of activity in the office and there are signs of product design and development every direction you look.
NEMO takes full responsibility for every creative detail of its brand and products. The team does all product design, engineering, development, studio photography, graphic design, etc. in house. And they have some serious talent onboard with a designer from Apple, a PhD engineer from GE, and a number of veterans from the industry. To support the design and engineering efforts of the team, their beautiful office in an old mill building in Dover, NH, has a full woodshop, photo studio, testing lab, rain chamber and full product design suite.
At NEMO, ideas for new products begin with having real experiences in adventure. A passion for adventure is an absolute prerequisite for being part of the team and the design team at NEMO works by these key principles:
- Never bring anything to market that isn’t significantly better than what is already available.
- Own and obsess over every detail.
- Be proud of what you do.
