Careers at Saddleback Mountain in Rangeley, Maine

Work in Maine's Outdoor Playground


Saddleback Mountain was purchased by Boston-based Arctaris Impact Fund in January 2020, as an investment in the recovery of the region's largest employer. As a result, Saddleback's mission goes beyond getting the resort back on its feet and includes helping solve many of the challenges faced by rural communities. In addition to re-establishing Saddleback as one of the most iconic ski areas in the country, we are also working to increase affordable housing, access to childcare, providing seasonal workers with year-round benefits, and increasing access to health and wellness care for families across the region.

Making all these initiatives viable requires Saddleback to perform at a high level and serve as the economic engine for the region. We are looking for candidates who want to be a part of helping us build that. 

Saddleback is hiring full-time, part-time, and internship positions. To view and apply click the "Openings" button at the top of the page.
