From a leading-edge sport research lab and design facilities to renowned onsite childcare centers, Nike campus life reflects the company’s focus on employee growth and balance of work and play. Just minutes from downtown Portland, the lush, meticulously manicured grounds of the campus stretch across 270 acres and encompass more than 35 buildings — most displaying the names of legendary athletes such as John McEnroe, Mia Hamm and Nolan Ryan. The Nike campus circles the tranquil Lake Nike and features world-class amenities such as fitness centers, NIKE, Inc. retail stores, cafeterias and restaurants, dry-cleaning services, running trails, soccer fields, beach volleyball courts and much more. Historical displays and athlete memorabilia remind employees, athletes and guests of Nike’s rich history and heritage — as well as its potential.

Several of Nike’s high-tech distribution centers operate in the U.S., with the majority of the facilities in Memphis, Tenn.
