The Culture

Demographics (Optional): 71% Male, 29% Female //  77% White, 16% Asian-American, 3% Black, 3% Latino
The best thing about working at Peak Design is: The fact that we prioritize happiness over growth.
When we’re not working, we’re: Playing outside, brewing beer, cracking jokes. 
What we’re reading: Monkey Wrench Gang, Let My People Go Surfing, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind
What we’re listening to: Khruangbin, Phosphorescent, Father John Misty, How I Built This (podcast)
If they made a movie about our workplace, it would be called: Work Hard, Play Harder
Inclusion in the outdoors matters because: We protect the places we love so the more people we can get into the outdoors, the more people will help to protect our planet. 

Five years down the line, it’s our hope that: Peak Design’s commitment to inclusion in the outdoors isn’t an exception but rather the norm across the industry.
