About us

Moab Gear Trader is a family owned outdoor gear store located in downtown Moab, Utah. We sell new and used outdoor gear and clothing including camping, climbing, watersports, cycling, apparel, fishing, hunting, and winter sports. Currently, we are seeking experienced professionals to help manage our growing store and team of amazing staff to keep things running smoothly. As a small, independently owned shop, all positions will include being a part of day to day floor operations. We offer great pay, the most flexible schedule you have ever had, a positive and professional work environment, and the fun that comes from the freedom to be ourselves on the job with no corporate headquarters calling the shots.

We are looking for applicants with experience in all aspects of specialty retail and consignment that want to grow along with us and be rewarded for hard work. There is huge potential to grow into a secure, well paying position living the dream here in Moab. If you are interested in being part of our team, let us know what experience you can bring, and why you want to work here. Our shop is modern, and relies heavily on digital tools to get our work done. Don’t forget the great music jammin’ all day long too! The biggest challenge is securing housing in our resort market, so don't hesitate to reach out with any questions about life in Moab before applying.
