Employment Opportunities

You’re a go-getter. A story-teller. A lover of public lands of all shapes and sizes. Seeker of mountain sunrises and quiet moments in new places. You enjoy having the wilderness as your classroom and can create meaningful connections for visitors and locals alike. Sometimes, you even prefer to sleep on a blanket under the stars than in a 5-star hotel.

The road to get here may be longer than what you’re used to, but we’re looking forward to you joining our team!

Whether you’re looking to be on the frontline of our educational retail stores, presenting science education research, leading backpacking or kayaking expeditions, or figuring out the logistics of it all – working at Alaska Geographic empowers you to have a hands-on role in supporting Alaska’s public lands alongside like-minded individuals who share a common love for the outdoors.

Alaska Geographic employs people in some of the most beautiful places in Alaska – from Glacier Bay and Denali to the Kenai Peninsula and Fairbanks. Join our team and help connect visitors to Alaska’s public lands by inspiring them to become stewards of our national parks, forests, refuges, and conservation lands.
