Marketplace Lead: Mid-Western United States

Maurten is growing rapidly and we are in need of increasing our team with colleagues that share our passion for sports and for people who can grow, think, create and dream.

About Maurten

We exist primarily for people who see themselves as athletes. People who are not satisfied with just joining, finishing and then going home. People who see it as a way of life to train, compete and always aim for the best results possible. These are the people who will benefit most from using Maurten products. They push themselves to achieve their best and we push ourselves to give them our best.

Back in 2015, we found a way to make sports fuels easier to tolerate, by encapsulating carbohydrates in hydrogels. The method was so successful, that today, most of the world's best marathoners, cyclist and triathletes are fuelling their training sessions and competitions with our technology.

Maurten is growing rapidly and we are in need of increasing our team with colleagues that share our passion for sports. The company looks for people who can grow, think, create and dream. Join us in upholding a culture of integrity, teamwork, and community.
