Talent Acquisition Partner

The mission of Ranger Ready Repellents is to reduce the rapid increase of Lyme disease, Zika virus, West Nile, and other vector-borne illnesses, and to educate people on the importance of wearing repellent as part of an everyday routine. To do this, we invented a better bug spray that can be worn every day and is safe for adults and children. Our active ingredient, Picaridin 20%, is the safest and most effective repellent that provides 12-hour protection when worn properly. Ranger Ready is designed to be the first with a non-greasy formula in premium scents.
Ranger Ready’s headquarters are home to the team’s office space and design center, and manufacturing, storage and shipping spaces, and is located in a modern renovated warehouse in South Norwalk, CT. We offer a motivated work environment built on teamwork and an “all-hands-on-deck” mentality.
Partnering with industry leaders and innovators is a key part of Ranger Ready’s strategy. The company has partnered with the Global Lyme Alliance to join, support, and expand their education and support programs, Ranger Ready has multiple partnerships within the professional golf world, independent pharmacy groups, and additional partnerships that will be officially announced in the coming weeks.
