become a part of the outpost team

What we are looking for
Team – Oriented
Work doesn’t feel like work when we care about and support each other. Given the nature of the hospitality business during high-season, it’s essential that we lift each other up and help each other out.
We’re on a mission to become better humans by serving our guests and serving our teammates. If the idea of growing yourself through service to others appeals to you, you’re a good fit.
Self – awareness
We value being aware of how we show up in the world, and the effect that has on our co-workers and guests. Emotional and relational intelligence are key.
We’re building a conscious community, which means there isn’t a party vibe here. Think casual beer after a hike, rather than bar hopping. Although marijuana is legal in CO, it’s not a part of our culture and we do pre-employment drug screening.
The Outpost is a new business, so there is tons of opportunity to help shape something from the ground up. This is exciting, and it also requires us to be flexible. Sometimes wranglers pop into housekeeping to help; sometimes a server helps with horse chores. Flexibility is key.
Was I life-giving today? That’s a question we live by. We strive not to be energy vampires, and not to gossip or engage in other draining conversations. We reach out when we need help, and address tensions directly and respectfully.
work with us
Our summer season starts on May 16th and runs through November. Preference for applicants who can stay through the entire season, but we do also have some availability for college students who need to work a shorter season.
Filled for Summer 2022 – Please check back for Winter 22/23
As our Outfitter, you will facilitate Steamboat Lake Outpost’s rental program. This takes a highly organized individual who can provide informed recommendations for experiences. The Outfitter is responsible for maintaining the fleet, orienting guests to the machines and the trails, and having a safety-first mindset. Ideal candidate is someone who is motivated to develop their hospitality and outdoor recreation skills.
As a server, you’ll be greeting guests and taking orders in our restaurant, which features elevated American fare, as well as craft beers and cocktails. We’ve furnished the space with long tables to create a community space, which you can help to foster through excellent service to our guests. A fast-paced, fun environment.
Filled for Summer 2022 – Please check back for next year
As a wrangler, you’ll be primarily responsible for taking our guests on trail rides through the Routt National Forest and Steamboat Lake State Park, as well as taking care of our herd of 20 horses and maintaining the fences and barn. Looking for experienced riders who are good with both horses and people.
As a cook, you’ll join Chef Mike in our newly re-designed kitchen, prepping and cooking items off our menu. The kitchen is a fast-paced environment where we work as a team to create great meals for our guests in a timely manner. Great for anyone with a passion for food and learning new skills.
front desk reservationist
As a reservationist, you’ll be the first impression that our guests receive, whether they walk in the door, or contact us via phone or email. The reservationists are the ambassadors of The Outpost and the area, helping guests book lodging and activities. We process store transactions and keep the store stocked and tidy. There are opportunities for development in marketing and other projects if interested.
