Ski Gear Tester, Want To Get Paid To Ski With A Friend In Sweden?

Company | Tenson

Company description | Since 1951, among Sweden’s leading outdoor brands.

Job location | Idre fjäll (Sweden)

Job description | Test out the latest ski gear collection by skiing the way you’ve always done. A tendency to fall is hence seen as a competitive merit! For over six decades, Tenson has been making innovative, functional clothing of the highest quality, proven to withstand during the harshest conditions worn by the most savage skiers. Being serious about the company vision to enable the outdoors and making garments for everyone, it’s now time to thoroughly test the gears on the Average Joe skier. And that’s where you come in. The Tenson product development department needs first-hand intel on how the ski gear can, for instance, withstand a 50 meter long tumble against an icy slope, going all in (and beyond) on the after-ski party and getting caught in the t-bar ski lift…

Compensation package | EUR 25 per hour + benefits, such as: round trip from your home to Idre fjäll, no matter where in this world you may live; delicious food and drinks from the Swedish cuisine (we’ve got a lot more to offer than meatballs); amazing cabin within walking distance to the slopes; ski gear rental; an awesome set of the latest Tenson skiing collection (that you’ll get to keep for future adventures); 4 day SkiPass; 8 hrs private skiing lessons (to increase the chances for you to someday go pro-ish); as a bonus, you’ll get to bring your best skiing enthusiast friend (all expenses paid).

Application period | From February, 8 to February, 11 2019.

Number open positions | 2

Candidate qualifications | Owing how to make a decent snowplough turn; being an expert at falling in the lift queue and/or in the lift and on the slope; in the snow park, your only trick is an unintentional “eagle”; you should have no idea what “pow”, “ripper”, “glades” or “poaching” means; every time you rent ski boots you tend to change them 2-3 times claiming there must be something wrong with them (since your feet hurts so bad).
