Outer started by creating the perfect outdoor sofa: beautiful, durable, comfortable, and innovative. We also invented a new model for retail because we believe that the furniture buying experience can be much better than stale, traditional showrooms with four walls, fluorescent lighting, and pushy salespeople. Our Neighborhood Showroom platform turns our customers' backyards into our physical showrooms where our customers can see, touch, and feel our products in a real backyard alongside a real customer (think: Airbnb meets retail).

Outer provides a robust total rewards package, including competitive compensation packages, unlimited PTO, medical & wellness plans, 401(k) contributions, life insurance, and more.

Outer is an equal opportunity employer, and we value diverse voices, backgrounds, and perspectives on our team. We don’t discriminate based upon race, religion, color, national origin, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, status as a protected veteran, status as an individual with a disability, or other applicable legally protected characteristics.

An Insider's view of Outer

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I can say without a doubt that Outer highly prioritizes work/life balance! Everyone truly believes in our people-first culture and recognizes we have many other responsibilities outside of our roles. We are all encouraged to take time off not just for life events like weddings, but also to prioritize mental health, and wellness.


People Specialist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The Marketing Team is constantly collaborating with the rest of the company in order to be more efficient, align our messaging, and understand the big picture.
Outside of structured meetings, we have several fun company-wide activities on a regular basis to connect on a personal level.


Marketing Strategy Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Outer is constantly evolving. With that, teammates have the opportunity to try on a variety of hats and determine what they enjoy, as well as where they want their career to go. The leadership team is unyieldingly supportive of personal career growth and does their best to ensure all teammates feel they are working toward their ideal future.


Community and Partnerships Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I never decline an invitation to meet with anyone on the team. I started my career as an intern in a 1-man design shop where I did everything from take out the trash, to cold call. Since then, I’ve worked at Fortune 100, mid-size, to everything in between. The interactions I had when I was an IC with Sr Mgmt helped shape my career & point of view.
