Who we are & what we stand for:

We set out to build a cooler without compromise -- one that would stand up to all the abuse we could throw at it.  Turns out we weren’t alone in our frustration with cheap gear.  Ten years and a few more compromise-free products later, and we’re one of the fastest growing brands in the outdoor industry.  We are in a rare sweet spot where we get to build and shape this young brand and organization every day, but now have the resources to do really big things. 

We are probably bigger (in sales, staff, resources) than you think we are, but still small enough for you to meaningfully help build and shape this growing brand.  We’re headquartered in Austin, Texas, which is one of America’s fastest growing cities for a reason: it’s a pretty great place to live.

Fit with YETI’s Core Values

  • Be authentic and innovative with our brand and products
  • Continually strive for improvement
  • Prioritize activities that have the biggest impact
  • Be responsive and go the extra mile
  • Act with a sense of urgency
  • No one succeeds alone

YETI is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.
