Change the World With Us

Adventure inspires us to see the world and make it better. Cotopaxi is made up of passionate visionaries, creative builders, and big-hearted humans, all working together to inspire adventure, fight poverty, and move people to Do Good.
People Focused

Mission & People First

We create responsibly made outdoor gear that brings performance, color, and joy to all, and helps us build a movement to support communities around the world. From retail guides to product designers to our foundation, we always put people first. Our work environment reflects how much we value people, innovation, and adventure, whether you’re working from our Salt Lake headquarters, one of our stores or Distribution Center, your couch, or a van in the woods.

Place for builders

Character & Camaraderie

Cotopaxi is all about people who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and get to work. We look for individuals who show a strong capacity for adaptiveness, are excited about our mission, and value being part of a unique team. Our brand is always evolving, which means you'll be evolving, too.

Cotopaxi Core Values


We always put people first, whether it’s the sewers making our products, our impact partners, our employees, or the adventurers using our gear.


We believe adventure helps us see the world and inspires us to make it better.


We constantly explore new ways of achieving our mission, whether that’s building more sustainable products or making a positive impact.

Inclusion & Belonging at Cotopaxi

As a humanitarian and mission-driven brand, we are deeply invested in welcoming, embracing, and celebrating all people, regardless of gender, age, race, disability, nationality, ethnicity, faith, or sexual orientation. Diversifying our team is essential and we’re actively taking steps to do so, including implementing the following practices:

  • Adopting a remote-first model allowing us to recruit diverse talent outside Utah
  • Partnering with diversity, inclusion, refugee and veteran focused specific job boards, organizations and communities
  • Providing transparent details on compensation and benefits on job postings
  • Utilizing an anonymous applicant screening tool to eliminate unconscious bias in our hiring process

To foster inclusion and continuously make Cotopaxi a better place to work for all, we’ve established routine executive sessions on inclusion in our workplace, Employee Resource Groups, trainings, and anonymous surveys. Here are a few tangible things we do to help people feel welcome every day:

  • Hold monthly “Allamas” meetings where any employee can bring forward any concern directly to senior leaders
  • Have bi-annual offsites where employees can connect, have real conversations, and enjoy fun activities together
  • Apply Cotopaxi’s Leadership Principles in how we show up for each other and advance the mission of Cotopaxi

Dedicated to Doing Good

“Do Good” is core to who we are, and we strive to hold our work environment to the same high standards we place on our products and our giving. 1% of our annual revenue is donated to the Cotopaxi Foundation. Our employees volunteer over 900 hours annually to nonprofits making a difference in our communities. We're a certified B Corp and a member of 1% for the Planet. We've also been recognized by Fortune, Fast Company, and Inc. Magazine as a ‘change the world’ business.
