Nautilus – Why Work For Us?

We’ve been committed to helping people reach their fitness goals for over 40 years. What started out as a revolutionary strength machine has evolved into a company with a diverse family of strength and cardio brands. Our Nautilus®, Bowflex®, Schwinn®, Universal®, and Octane Fitness® brands deliver unique fitness solutions designed to meet the needs of any fitness level. Our products are sold through multiple channels tround the world. Discover what millions of households already know.


We do more than make and sell fitness products. We are encouraged to live a healthy lifestyle too! We have access to an on-site fitness center, an employee driven wellness program and the opportunity to participate in many company sponsored fitness and community events throughout the year. It’s easy to see, we really do love health and fitness! While we are business driven, we don’t believe in suits and ties. Our dress code is casual and so is our culture. We like to have fun but remain focused on growing the company.  Company sponsored events include Bring Your Child to Work Day, Rugged Maniac, Reach the Beach Bike Ride, Ragnar, Tough Mudder, Hood to Coast, Portland to Coast, Nautilus softball and of course or famous summer kickball league!  

Our commitment to becoming a great employer is paying off! The Portland Business Journal has awarded us “Healthiest Employer” for their 101-500 employee category in Oregon/SW Washington since 2011 and we’ve also received recognition as one of the “Top Workplaces” for Oregon and Southwest Washington since 2013.  With all of this recognition, we are certainly doing something right! Come check us out and see how we can get your career in shape.


It is our desire to be a strong partner in the community and at Nautilus, Inc. we believe that every person should have access to a healthy lifestyle. It is in that spirit that the Nautilus Cares program is dedicated to combating the physical inactivity epidemic in America’s youth by breaking through economic barriers which prevent young people from discovering a passion for sports, active hobbies and childhood play. Our focus is on at-risk and underserved youth who are often denied access to sports leagues, swimming lessons, dance or karate instruction, summer camp experiences, physical education and other similar activities rooted in fitness and movement.

Through the Nautilus Cares program we’re able to give back through the donation of product, grants and volunteer hours throughout the year. In 2018 we helped support nearly 50 local non-profit organizations in the communities where we live and work continuing some long-term relationships with valuable organizations like the American Lung Association, the Parks Foundation of Clark County, the American Heart Association Youth Market Team, Vancouver Police Activities League, Meals on Wheels, and the Evergreen Schools Foundation. Our employees love to “volun-team build”, spending time together completing service projects for local organizations.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nautilus (Vancouver, WA) in September 2014.


    Very well organized interview process. Steps felt appropriate. Follow-ups were all within a reasonable amount of time. Part one: phone interview with HR. Part two: phone interview with whom I'd be reporting to. Part three: flight out to HQ to meet with key channel managers. Combination of 1:1 and group interview settings.
