The official internal title of this role is TBD.

Location: US Remote

Compensation: Competitive Salary + Equity (range based on experience)

Our Company

The Rocky Talkie (our flagship product) is a backcountry radio that launched in late 2019. The improvements versus competitive products are numerous: durability, reliability, ease-of-use (carabiner / leash system), size & weight, performance in the cold, etc. The product has a rapidly growing base of happy customers (see reviews here) in the USA and we just launched in Canada. Although we initially designed it with climbers and skiers in mind, the radio has been adopted by a wide variety of outdoor enthusiasts and commercial applications.

Our team is driven every day by the belief that better communication in the backcountry will save lives. As part of this mission, we donate $2 per radio to search and rescue teams around the country.
