Company Overview

Would you like to be part of a growing, vibrant, values led active lifestyle company?
If so, Nuun Hydration might be a great place for you. Nuun is a fast growing company that is on a mission to inspire a healthier, happier, more active lifestyle so that everyone can achieve life's next personal best.

What does Nuun Hydration do?

Nuun makes and sells a delicious sports drink that helps you stay hydrated so you feel and perform at your best. It’s sold today at Run, bike and sporting goods stores, on Amazon, at Target and many grocery stores.

Nuun is low in sugar and made with clean, natural ingredients. We sell nuun in tablets so it’s easy to carry with you – a 2 oz tube has 10 tablets so replaces 10 x 16 ounce bottles of water. It’s also kinder to our planet.

Drinking nuun is simple – just add one of our fun fizzy tablets to your water and watch the bubbles as it dissolves. Enjoy the taste, and how you feel afterwards.

What is it like to work at Nuun?

You’ll work hard, you’ll learn a lot, and you’ll be part of building something special.

At HQ:

Nuun is based in Seattle, Wa. Our open office has a friendly, casual vibe and while we definitely work hard and get stuff done, we also live our brand. On any given day you’ll find people biking to work or ‘runching’ (lunchtime run) - which is a good thing since donuts also show up almost as frequently as the latest plant-based energy bar. If you like to work behind a closed door Nuun may not be right for you, but if doggie visitors and 5 minutes fitness breaks help bring out your best, check us out.

In the field:

Half of Nuun works outside of our Seattle HQ – mostly in sales or field marketing. Because culture is so important, we communicate primarily through video conference when we’re not in the room together – it helps with the work and the vibe. We have a monthly all-hands video conference to share the latest and greatest, and use slack as a daily informal virtual water cooler. You may be physically distant but you’ll soon feel close to your fellow nuunies.
