About Alaska FishTopia
With a constant desire to blend excitement, travel, adventure, hiking, back-country excursions, and social community in one of the greatest outdoor playgrounds on earth we’ve created Alaska FishTopia.
Alaska FishTopia is the premier fishing, adventure, information and entertainment app in Alaska. Launched in the summer of 2017, Alaska Fishtopia became one of the top 10 downloaded apps throughout the state.
And we’re not stopping there! Constantly under improvement and packed full of new features, benefits, and more, we’re looking to grow the success we’ve started.
One-part technology company, and one-part outdoor adventure company Alaska FishTopia has its sights well beyond the Alaska Market as well and will be expanding beyond Alaska in the early parts of 2021.
About the role
It’s time to blend a little excitement with your career for a summer, season or year-round! This job will be modified, written, rewritten, and entirely defined for the right person. This position could be full-time, could be an internship, or seasonal summer part-time. For the right candidate, the sky is the limit.
An adventurous lifestyle means to grow through passion, challenge and risk taking. It's about learning to look at the world through curious eyes— to wonder what's on the other side of the mountain — and allowing wanderlust to become your guide
Whether you love the water (canoe, kayak, white-water, river fishing, salt-water fishing), the mountains (climbing, hiking, skiing), or outdoor adventure (tours, wilderness, fly-out trips, beaches), you’ll find plenty of adventure here.
Your job will literally(!) be to adventure as much as possible, while representing Alaska FishTopia to businesses, customers, sponsors, marketing events, community gatherings and more.
It’s not an accident that “Do Adventure” is listed as one of the top responsibilities for the job. We want you out fishing, doing fly-outs, hiking, climbing glaciers, and more. And getting paid to do it!
