All positions for 2024 are filled. Please apply in December of 2024. 

Are you looking for more than just a summer job?

Many work-places these days are filled with greedy owners, power-hungry managers, lazy employees and unhappy customers.

The company culture, if there is one, is often uninspiring, trivial or downright toxic.

In many places, the few good employees end up doing most of the work. Are you one of them?

Are you looking for more?

How about the opportunity to work in an amazing place with incredible people? The opportunity to learn the skills and gain the experience of an outdoor professional? The opportunity to face the challenge of living and working in Alaska? The opportunity to be a part of a tight community that spans the globe?

Ongoing training, scholarships for off-season training, profit-sharing, travel and gear reimbursement, discounts on gear and more perks make us the place to be and keep our Crew coming back.  

We start accepting applications in November for work the following Summer.

Come for the Challenge.  Stay for the Community. 

It’s not easy getting a job with us.  We’re very selective and have very low turnover in our Crew. 

It’s not easy working with us. In fact, some things are intentionally hard.  Long days.  Living in a tent.  Carrying water for the kitchen.  Extremely high expectations. That opportunity isn’t handed to you. You have to earn it.

It’s not easy staying with us.  Returning for subsequent summers means becoming a Leader and a Mentor.  More responsibility and more challenge.  

For some, their summer with MICA is the hardest thing they’ve ever done.  

The people are the reward.  

Our community of outdoor professionals believes in working hard, playing harder, and being our best every day. The crew-members you meet while guiding treks and climbs on the glacier during the MICA summer season might become your companions for skiing in the Rockies, biking in the desert or even working in Antarctica during the off-season! You will not only be signing up for a job but joining one big, adventurous group of friends.
