The Orvis Home Office in Sunderland, VT

Welcome to the Orvis Job Wall, where we update you periodically on the opportunities to be a part of the Orvis team. As a friend and follower of Orvis, you likely know and appreciate the products, the brand, and the lifestyle that have been integral to Orvis for more than 150 years. We firmly believe that the only way for Orvis to achieve its vision to be the most respected lifestyle brand in America is to build a company culture that is supportive and inspiring to the individuals who will help us get there. You may not have considered that Orvis, the brand you know and love, may also be a great place to take your next career step, so we hope provide some insights in to our employment brand, culture, and opportunities.

This week, we wanted to shine the light on two opportunities for folks with extremely different skill sets. The first is for someone to join the Orvis Travel team, which is kind of like a Dream Job if you enjoy helping people plan incredible vacations. The second is for an Inventory Manager for Orvis Rod & Tackle. This is perfect for an organized, detail-oriented person who also loves the outdoors and wants to live in a beautiful part of the Northeast. Both are located at our Vermont home office, tucked into the Green Mountains. Click the job titles to see a complete job listing, as well as instructions for applying.
