Are you looking for a way to inspire people with careful, intentional messaging? If you’re looking for a place where your ideas and aspirations have value, keep reading. Our company looks for diverse minds with a passion for changing others’ lives through systematic and intentional visual and verbal storytelling.

Ascent Ventures manages rock climbing centers with two locations and two in development. We believe that we as a business have the ability to change lives for the better in our community, we want to lead the way for other climbing centers looking to change how they approach people, and we are looking for someone that is able to engage people in a friendly and inclusive way so that they can make their home here and do that.

We’re looking for the right person to grow with – we want our messaging to reach not the stereotypical market for rock climbers, we want to see those who don’t see themselves in our space, make them feel as if it could become theirs, and once they’re there to feel like they are part of a group the supports them, their trials, and their successes. 

You’ll be working in a collaborative environment that’s team-centered, fast-changing and fast-failing. We’ll expect you to find holes and fill them, bringing up ideas and questions in meetings and helping us continue to improve and expand our reach and community involvement.
