The successful candidate will be passionate about outdoor activities, have experience in closing sales and/or sponsorships, comfortable with explanations of technology (this is an app based event), be connected to their local community and eager to participate in adventures! All work would be conducted remotely so candidate would need experience being a self-managed team member that is capable of delivering results on a weekly basis.

We currently have a lengthy list of national brands that need to be contacted so a portion of those would be assigned to new Adventure Ambassadors along with their local territory.


Present, promote and sell sponsorship to prospective customers in the following categories: apparel, footwear, gear for all outdoor sports, nutrition/snacks, breweries, outdoor activity providers (excursions in climbing, fishing, horsebackriding, climbing, rafting, etc).
Create a list of potential sponsors in their area and compile their contact info in our team doc

Attend or call in for a team meeting once per week for status updates and team brainstorming of sponsorship execution ideas
Keep a Google drive doc updated at least once per week with new contact info from potential sponsors, notes on progress, etc.

Once sponsorship is agreed upon, Sponsorship Development Manager would send over the sponsorship commitment form and payment link and refer to internal team member to get marketing materials


Sponsorships of this event start at $500 and go up to $25,000. All Sponsorship Development Managers have the opportunity to sell any level of sponsorship along with tickets and teams to this event. Tickets are $25 each. All our materials are digital and available on our website. If the community you are located in would prefer print fliers we can distribute those to you if needed.
