A FEW NOTES FROM THE TEAM

Steven Rinella

Founder @MeatEater

One of the many things I love about MeatEater is how much our people help one another get outside in order to live the lifestyle that we are committed to protecting. Every day, I see acts of generosity: teaching marksmanship, lending boats, packing out elk, sharing waypoints, fixing gear, helping with game processing, and giving endless amounts of praise for accomplishments in the outdoors. It's inspiring and infectious. When I need a favor, my colleagues are the first place I go. And when they come to me, I try my hardest to help.

Dirk Durham

Sales and Marketing @PhelpsGameCalls

A lot of people put value on shiny objects and expensive toys, but I find much richer, and deeper connections to wild places in nature. Elk bugles, dark timber pockets, tiny hidden creeks, and quiet mountaintops to name a few. Working here, I'm surrounded by folks who have the same values and mindset, and our generous PTO allows me to connect with the things I love most: family and hunting.

Christine Sawicki

Human Resources @MeatEater

There's no shortage of passionate and motivated folks around here. Each and every individual is driven by edgy creativity, practical data, and a true eagerness to bring the MeatEater lifestyle to any and everyone following along with what we do. I get to work side by side with those who want to see success and accessibility for all hunters and anglers, and conservation of the resources that allow us to all get out and do what we love. Oh, and catching up on Monday's about our weekend hunts isn't so bad either. It doesn't get any better than that!

Mike Calian

CS Experience @DaveSmithDecoys

They say if you do something you love, you will never work a day in your life. Working at DSD I'm surrounded by passionate hunting enthusiasts, people that operate on the same wavelengths and mindsets when it comes to building the planet's finest hunting gear. My experience is heavily valued here, and seeing those opinions applied to bettering our product is an incredible thing! Working under the MeatEater umbrella comes with tons of great benefits and lots of time set aside for keeping you in the field. It's rare to find a career where you look forward to logging into work everyday, but I have definitely found it here.

Tressa Croaker

Digital Product Developer @MeatEater

Having the opportunity to work and live a lifestyle centered around the outdoors is all you can ask for! Being surrounded by such passionate and like-minded folks who hunt, fish, camp, and hike is what I thrive on. The wealth of knowledge that our crew possesses and is willing to teach everyone in the office is priceless and has helped to expand my knowledge in the industry. MeatEater makes it possible to work at the intersection of tech and the outdoors.

Jake Jourdonnais

Product Line Manager @FHFGear

Most mornings are pretty normal around here as far as office workspaces go. They start with coffee and a round table discussion of advanced rifle ballistics, broadhead penetration on quartering elk, or what material our next hunting bag will be made of. It's not everyday that you can work in a place where hunting and fishing experience translates directly to the work you're doing for the customer. On top of that, the generous PTO policy offered gives us ample time to be outdoors and with our families.
