Logistics include scheduling and confirming restaurant and activity reservations on select programs, coordinating transportation needs, national park permitting, Expedition Leader and field staff flights and the management of room releases with individual properties and operators.

· Assist in the planning and execution of Expedition Leader training retreats locally and around the world.

· The position may include other responsibilities and opportunities not listed above.

· At least 3 years’ experience in a logistics/operations-related role is highly preferred.

· Extremely organized and detail-oriented; able to prioritize and efficiently manage multiple tasks, consistently meeting scheduled deadlines.

· Salary: $50,000 plus annual bonus.

· This position comes with generous PTO and paid holidays. Benefits include site inspection on Nat Hab trips, pro deals on outdoor clothing, onsite fitness facility and exercise classes. Eligibility for medical insurance, participation in 401(k) with company match and parental leave after a predetermined period of time.

· This is a full-time, exempt position.




· In addition to the benefit of having 2 weeks of site inspection on Nat Hab trips where one is a participant on a scheduled program, the Operations Coordinator may be required to travel approximately 1-2 additional weeks a year in order to build field knowledge and rapport with partners around the world as well as to facilitate and execute regional Expedition Leader trainings.

· Remote employees would also be expected to attend 3 to 4 annual day-long retreats in Boulder, Colorado (retreats are currently suspended due to COVID-19). Staff may also be required to come to the office at other times throughout the year.
