Applications are open to become the 2017 Road Warrior. Cotopaxi wants someone who likes camping, marketing, event planning, and driving — a lot of driving — for the job.

The position is part of a socially and environmentally progressive gear manufacturer’s fourth annual Questival, a 24-hour adventure race and scavenger hunt that tours the U.S.

The Road Warrior will set up a pop-up retail shop, post to Cotopaxi’s social media outlets, manage merchandise inventory, and assist the Questival team at each event.

That job may include helping unload, pet, and photograph the famed Cotopaxi llamas.

Still interested? Job requirements are pretty loose. The application page encourages couples and “candidates with furry companions” to apply.

Still, preference will be given to those with the following qualifications:

  • Retail experience—outdoor industry experience a plus
  • Social media savvy—Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, etc. (established influencer a plus)
  • Creative writing skills
  • Road trip and camping experience
  • Trailer-towing experience
  • Event execution/trade show experience

If you land this job, plan to be away from home pretty much all year. Cotopaxi has 44 Questival stops lined up, beginning February 17 in Austin, Texas. The site lists the first official stop in Salt Lake City. Check out the full tour map below.

If driving 25,000 miles, crisscrossing the U.S. hauling a trailer, and setting up adventure race parties — and getting paid! — sounds like fun, hop over and apply now.
