About Roadtrip Nation – Our Culture
Located in Costa Mesa, Calif., a passerby wouldn't be able to miss Roadtrip Nation's HQ with one of our big Green RVs parked out front (if it's not out on one of its many Roadtrips). We're a team of hardworking, dedicated, creative, individuals who love what we do here. On a typical day, you can find us in our conference room in the midst of a collaborative creative brainstorm or our eyes glued to FinalCut, Illustrator, and InDesign. Although we work hard, there's always time for a little fun. Find us battling one another in a vehement game of ping-pong or taking a break out at the beach during lunchtime. We're a quirky (and kind of a geeky) crew who runs on coffee and often gets excited when a new product launches with Apple or Google. All of us share a deep-rooted passion and pride for our work, and we feed off one another's energy, ideas, and opinions. If you think you'd fit in well with us, we'd love to meet you.
