Employer: Duluth Trading Company

Who We Are

Started in 1989, Duluth Trading Company is a team of tinkerers, taunters, fussers, and fine-tuners who enjoy working hard just as much as our customers enjoy our hardworking gear. Duluth Trading Company’s house of brands, including Duluth, AKHG, and Best Made, are all bonded by the belief that there’s always got to be a better way.

Why Work at Duluth Trading Company?

We’re powered by the heart, grit, and dedication of our band of hellbent tinkerers and taunters. While we never take ourselves too seriously, the same can’t be said for the work we do. That’s because our no bull brand is very serious about making the best apparel and gear for hardworking people looking to take on life with their own two hands.

Favorites such as our Ballroom Jeans, featuring crouch without the ouch, Buck Naked Underwear, and No-Yank Tanks reflect our attitude. We pride ourselves in outthinking, outsmarting, and outcrafting average in everything we do! The talented people we seek want to be proud of where they work, have a commitment to do things better, and be part of an omnichannel house of brands that knows where it’s going.
