Working at Quark Expeditions

About Quark Expeditions

Quark Expeditions is the leader in polar adventure travel. Since 1991, Quark has been establishing a tradition of firsts in polar travel: as the first to transit the Northeast Passage with adventure travelers; the first to take travelers to the far side of Antarctica; and the first to circumnavigate the Antarctic continent with guests. Quark Expeditions is recognized for its diverse fleet of passenger vessels and offers the widest variety of polar itineraries of any other adventure company.

Quark’s expedition team members are all polar-passionate seasoned veterans with rich backgrounds in marine biology, history, geology and more. Many are skilled Zodiac drivers and kayakers. Quark offers one of the highest staff-to-guest ratios in the expedition world. And that means more expert guidance, not to mention you’ll be spending time with some of the most fascinating people on the planet!

At our offices, we have a great team of people taking care of the business side of things: Operations, Finance, IT and Marketing and Sales.

Unsolicited employment requests will not be responded to. Quark Expeditions does not hire for ship hotel and catering positions.
