If you have ever thought about working for an airline, 2023 might be your year. Alaska Airlines is announcing plans to hire more than 3,500 new employees this year in a variety of roles and functions. As we continue to grow and bring dozens of new airplanes into our fleet, we need thousands of people to join the Alaska family. From maintenance technicians to contact center agents, flight attendants to pilots, customer service agents to software engineers, we will have jobs available for anyone who wants to be part of our team.

Most of the new jobs are based at our hubs in Seattle and Portland, as well as locations up and down the West Coast. Benefits like the ability to work from home and flexibility of schedules are also available with some roles. Many of the positions do not require previous airline experience, so it's the perfect time to try a new career. The openings will be posted at careers.alaskaair.com throughout the year.

"It's an exciting time to join our team, and we're eager to welcome more great people to Alaska," said Andy Schneider, senior vice president of people at Alaska Airlines. "We offer a wide variety of positions, and we pride ourselves on nurturing talent and providing opportunities to learn new skills and move into new, challenging roles. Come join our winning team!"

Here's a look at the approximate number of new hires for each role we'll be looking to fill this year.
