Join Team Tortuga

We are a small team of passionate travelers whose core purpose is to help you live on your terms.

The idea for Tortuga came on a backpacking trip in 2009. After experiencing the shortcomings of travel backpacks first hand, we’ve been obsessed with fixing them ever since. We’re solving problems for travelers, not just selling stuff.

Tortuga has been named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s 100 Brilliant Companies, nominated for Carryology’s Best Carry On Award (twice), and featured in Condé Nast Traveler.

Who Is a Good Fit at Tortuga?

In every role, we look for other travelers who share our core values.

Work On Our Terms: We are a distributed team. Everyone sets their own hours and chooses where to live and work. Sharing values is more important than sharing an office.

Scratch Our Own Itch: We created our first product because we needed it. Every product that we make must solve a problem for urban travelers. We will never slap our logo on a “me too” product just for the cash.

Prioritize the Customer: If you have a problem, we’ll do everything in our power to fix it. When you contact us, you are always speaking directly to a person with the authority and ability to solve your problem.

Build and Improve Systems: We use software and systems to help our team focus on what matters: product and people (that’s you).


Aside from getting to work with other travel lovers, all full-time employees receive the following benefits.

Work from Anywhere: Tortuga is 100% distributed. Decide where you work best, whether that's from home, a coffee shop, a co-working space, or another country.

Team Retreats: Twice per year, we get together in one place to work together, to plan the future of the company, and to have fun in-person. Past retreats include Lisbon, Montreal, San Sebastían.

Unlimited Vacation: You decide how much of a break you need and when. Just promise to tell us about your trip when you get back.

Total Coverage: Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision insurance. We pay 100% of your premiums and 50% of your dependents' premiums.

Free Gear: All the bags and accessories you need for your future travels.
