We are looking for a Full-Stack Developer to join our team


Cairn is changing the way outdoor enthusiasts discover new products and ideas that inspire them to connect and explore.  Since the company’s founding in early 2014, Cairn has grown from shipping product out of the CEO’s garage to a market leader and growing community of outdoor enthusiasts numbering in the thousands.  Cairn has partnered with over 200 brands in the Outdoor industry, shipped over 2 million products, and was named to Outside Magazine’s Best Places to work for 2017.  In 2018, Cairn added Gear Up, Give Back™ to its offerings - a program that facilitates recycling of outdoor gear and apparel (with all net proceeds being donated to charity). More recently, the company launched the Kitted, an industry-first, try-before-you-buy retail experience for outdoor products as well as Unstacked, a unique gear auction experience. Cairn is located in beautiful Bend, Oregon.


Do you love working with non-developers, hearing their ideas, and figuring out how to turn them into an online-reality? Can you build a full retail website from scratch, front and backends? Do you love gear as much as you love code? If so, this job is for you.

This is an excellent chance to join a company that is pushing the creative retail envelope in the Outdoor Industry. You will be a part of a small development team and asked to do it all (when it comes to code/development). You are expected to create and then work to project timelines.

Professional accountability, punctuality, and strong communication are as important as the quality of your code.

We’re open to you working virtually, but having you in Bend would be ideal. Bend is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise and now you can work for a company that embodies the Central Oregon lifestyle. So come on, we can’t wait to see what you can accomplish with us!
