Posted on Friday, August 18, 2023

Join our Hydro Flask Engineering Team at Helen of Troy as our Engineering Technician (onsite) and make an immediate impact on our trusted brands. Together, we build innovative and useful products that elevate people's lives everywhere every day. As the world's premier company for insulated products, Hydro Flask began with a challenge: to create a reusable water bottle that truly performs in any environment. It had to keep hot liquids hot and cold liquids cold. Period.

Do you love unique problems and challenges? We are a group of hard-working people and outdoor enthusiasts who are constantly putting our products to the test and delivering "ahh" experiences to engaged consumers worldwide. We live our brand values every day, supporting a reliable, playful, adaptive, honest, inclusive, and unconventional culture where employees can learn, thrive, and grow!

Our Hydro Flask Team is based in breathtaking Bend, Oregon. There is a desert to the East of town and mountains to the West. Our geography says a lot about who we are. We bike, ski, swim, do yoga, run, hike, and play outside. We grill and share kombucha and growlers in our backyards. We go for it wholeheartedly. That may sound like the weekend, but that is how we live every day of the year. We also offer a casual and dog-friendly environment!

Work Location: Bend, Oregon (100% Onsite)
