Jobs in the Spotlight

Our Jobs

We have two types of positions, professional jobs, and internships.  

Professional jobs are experienced guides and support people who have most often grown with us.  Due to our low turnover, professional positions have few openings each season.  Before applying for a professional position, make sure that you meet the requirements listed on our website.  

Internships.  90% of our employees start as interns.  We invest heavily in training in these positions and aim to offer a wide range of Alaskan experiences.  

Our Season

We operate in the short but intense Alaskan summer with endless daylight for about 3 months.  Internships start on June 1, plus or minus a day or two.  Sorry, but no exceptions to this start date.  Professional jobs start in mid-May.  All applicants must be able to work until at least mid-August and most will stay until mid-September.  

  • Admin & Logistics Support

    Base Camp and Glacier View

    The Logistics Team or “LT” are a small team who work closely with Don and the Managers to run the whole operation. For our Guests, the LT is often their first impression, they’re the “face” of the company. Strong admin and customer service skills needed for this diverse position, they will be working indoors and out and get a taste of all three of the companies.

    They will handle guest check-ins, MICA reservations, guide the zipline, answer the phone, check emails, run the espresso truck and help with marketing, content and social media  projects along the way. The LT also help run our remote glacier camp accessed by helicopter!

    Due to the steep learning curve, most members of the LT start as Interns and are promoted to a paid position once all basic tasks are mastered. LT Interns have the opportunity to learn a lot about how a small business operates and what it takes to be a successful company, while enjoying an outdoor adventure lifestyle in Alaska and taking advantage of our skills and leadership courses.
