The work that Open Sky does with its students and families is nothing short of amazing and highly rewarding for all levels of the organization. Open Sky opened its doors in Durango, Colorado, with the mission of inspiring individuals to live in a way that honors values and strengthens relationships. We are driven by our core values of courage, community, and excellence.
Durango is our home because of its proximity to the spectacular beauty of the San Juan Mountains and the canyon country of southeastern Utah, where we conduct our field operations. With white-capped mountain peaks and warm desert sun, there is no better place to offer our program or to thrive as an individual.
What makes Durango such a popular outdoor wonderland is not just its picturesque natural beauty, or countless local events and attractions; it’s the weather that helps make Durango a true mountain paradise. On average, there are 266 sunny days per year in Durango, Colorado. Durango offers a fantastic quality of life with world-class outdoor access, a vibrant downtown, and a strong sense of community.
The successful Human Resources Director candidate will receive relocation assistance. We offer competitive compensation commensurate with your experience. Our benefits include Health, Dental, vision, life, long-term disability, and short-term disability insurance; sick leave; paid time off; 401(k) retirement plan with match; and an Employee Assistance Program. Our home office is located on the beautiful Animas River with frequent Bald Eagle sightings, a walking trail to downtown Durango, and the daily passing of the historic Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Tired of the office routine? Frequent visits to our operations and field offices located in the sunny desert or scenic mountains will brighten your week.

I feel fortunate to work for Open Sky. The program does top tier therapeutic work with clients and families, and I have found the community to be incredibly supportive as an employee. I appreciate the values-driven approach to how we conduct ourselves as colleagues and with clients and families.
Working alongside such a talented group of individuals who are compassionate and supportive is something I never thought I would find…The work that is done in the field is nothing short of amazing and highly rewarding for all levels of the organization. The company has grown tremendously with regards to both establishing processes and procedures, as well as incorporating more bench strength within management to help lead our organization. Each family is professionally approached with such care and respect, and finally, the individuals who work at Open Sky are such caring and interesting people.
Strong, healthy and supportive company culture…Everyone is working together toward a shared mission. Open Sky has a knack for finding and hiring exceptionally skilled and caring people. When you work here…you feel like you’re a part of something special. I also value how the company is always evaluating service and asking how and where we can do better. It’s an inspiring place to work that really challenges you to bring your “A” game. I would send my own child to Open Sky without hesitation.
Everyone takes their job seriously and is passionate about the work. Expectations for employees are clear and there is support to reach goals and complete projects.
