Jobe's history and culture
The Jobe brand was founded by American water skier Jeff Jobe. In 1974 he started developing and selling plastic water skis in Redmond, Seattle. Over the years the Jobe brand continued to grow strongly and in 1988 a Dutch couple came in contact with Jobe. They began importing water skis at this time, and it soon became clear that these products were in high demand. The company of that time 'Sport en Recreatie Den Bol' experienced a great growth and finally in 2008 the Jobe brand name was definitively taken over from Jeff Jobe. From that moment on, Jobe Sports was a fact.

Based in Heerewaarden, the Netherlands, Jobe Sports has always been a true family business and the company continued to grow tremendously even after the official brand takeover in 2008. To continue that growth, Jobe Sports has been part of Alliance Marine Group, based in France, since April 2022. Alliance Marine Group has about 20 companies in their portfolio with locations throughout Europe. Despite this acquisition, Jobe's organizational culture is still characterized as a family business and we are extremely proud of that!

'Getting you on the water' was created by the passion for water sports of the couple that brought Jobe to the Netherlands. Whenever they went out on the water, they were always busy getting other people on the water as well. The enthusiasm of others for water sports has been passed on for years to employees and everyone around them and is really in Jobe's DNA!

Jobe's culture is our success. Started as a small import company and grown into one of the biggest watersports brands in the world, but maintaining our family culture. That is what we are proud of! We therefore feel it is important that our colleagues can identify with and embrace this culture.
