The Dyrt- 2

The Dyrt is paying its employees to camp and test its app.

The Dyrt, a camping app, is paying its employees to go camping, according to a press release.

Every quarter, each employee of The Dyrt can head out to a campground and produce a field report to receive a $400 bonus. All they have to do is give a brief presentation on how they used The Dyrt app, report what worked well and what didn’t, and share any other suggestions or insights.

“Many of the people who work at The Dyrt during the week are going camping on the weekends,” said Kevin Long, co-founder and CEO of The Dyrt. “What might have seemed like a good idea from user testing in the office may play out in unexpected ways when on the road looking for a campground or reviewing a camping experience. We are happy to pay employees to camp because getting that perspective from our staff is invaluable.”

The Dyrt is in the midst of an ambitious round of hiring for 30 new positions, across developer roles, marketing and community management, stated the release. Now fully remote, and remaining that way going forward, The Dyrt is searching the country for the best outdoors tech candidates to continue building the camping-for-all platform. Eight years after its inception, The Dyrt’s 40-plus person workforce is still 50% women.

“I would be going camping in my free time no matter where I worked,” says Maggie Fisher, marketing coordinator at The Dyrt. “But to get paid to go camping and come up with ways to improve our product along the way is ideal. I love working at a company where my outdoor experience is valued, my input is heard, and I get paid to camp!”
