At Osprey, we create innovative, high-performance gear that reflects our love of adventure and our devotion to the outdoors. We're a melting pot of diverse personalities, backgrounds and abilities, and we all share the common belief that adventure is open to everyone and found everywhere. We’ve been crafting the highest quality products in the industry for the past 45 years, and we are always welcoming to new members of our tribe.
What You’ll Do
As the Product Manager of Travel, you’ll drive the category’s planning and product creation process from concept through commercialization. You will own relevant information on consumers, competitors and trends within the travel channel, while analyzing and understanding the performance of travel products on a global basis. You’ll bring to market product lines that build long-term strength for the company and work with various departments to ensure long-term growth success.
Projects You’ll Work On
Evaluating the market for future product, forecasting demand and product opportunity on a global basis
Overseeing assigned category product lines; owning business and assisting in enhancing category growth
Using research and analysis to plan assigned product lines through an extended time horizon to maximize product impact and ensure long-term competitiveness
Leading assigned lines in product concept, design and development process
Overseeing testing and continuous improvement efforts for the category, providing regular and clear feedback to the Design and Development teams
Experience You’ll Bring
We are looking for an outdoor or travel professional who is product-focused, open minded and a strong communicator. You should have a degree in Product/Industrial Design, Marketing, Business or a similar field with at least 5 years of outdoor/travel industry experience in product management and travel goods. Retail or sales experience in the outdoor or travel channel is desired but not a deal-breaker.
Why You’ll Love It Here
Your happiness is vital to our overall success which is why we offer perks to inspire and support an active outdoors quality of life. Our generous discount on gear means you have an opportunity to actually use the best-in-the-industry products you help create. We make it easy to stay active with on-site yoga, fitness center passes, alternative transportation incentives and lift ticket drawings. Going somewhere? Borrow a pack, a piece of luggage, a bike, a tent, a sleeping bag, camping chairs and more from our gear supply. Getting this job doesn’t mean tossing that bucket list. Our Keep It Wild grant offers you additional time off, monetary funds and equipment to accomplish a reach goal in the outdoors.
Don’t worry, we have the basics covered too. When you work here, we pay for your medical, dental and life insurance. Baby on the way? Enjoy paid maternity/paternity leave. Profit sharing, free packs, competitive time off and professional development support round out our [not so] basic benefits.
Oh, did we mention your dog can work alongside you?
