Job Vacancy eCommerce Technology Support Specialist American Outdoor Brands

Job title: eCommerce Technology Support Specialist

Company: American Outdoor Brands

Job description: eCommerce Technology Support Specialist
Columbia, MO

POSITION: We work where we play! Turning pursuit into passion, AOB delivers brands that move you because our success is measured by moments that matter.


We are passionate about the activities we pursue to the point that those around us cannot understand. As VISIONARIES, we lay at night under the stars, wondering if there are better views somewhere else, ready to take on the next adventure before the current one is even over. Reflecting from the top of mountains, we are left with pleasant exhaustion after an intense climb, FEARLESSLY planning the next one that will be a little more challenging.

We daydream about working the land in preparation for the next hunting season, continually finding ways to improve upon the previous year’s results. We transition to RELENTLESSLY chasing that ever-elusive trophy that, even when faced with failure, somehow fuels the following year’s daydreams.

We set out in pursuit, INQUISITIVE about the weather, geography, and what lies around the next corner or over the next horizon to find the ideal spot. Questioning our judgment, regardless of the day’s success, we watch the sun go down, as our vessels head to shore, left believing tomorrow could be better.

We go to the range intent on improving our skills, for whatever our favored discipline may be, AMBITIOUS to become the most accurate and precise.

Regardless of the activity, the outdoors calls us in COLLABORATION, to share the moments that matter, in a way that delivers satisfaction through failures and success. A never-ending battle between us and our “hobbies” that always leaves us wanting….

We want applicants in pursuit of their passions, yet grounded by an industrious attitude to prevail. Yes, we daydream about the next adventure; however, we execute with the focus of lions stalking their prey. We are fearless with our goals and relentlessly raise the bar. We set our vision on the next opportunity but stay inquisitively, asking, “What could we have done better?” We collaborate, having a value in different perspectives and walks of life, then perform ambitiously to disrupt the market and set the trend.
