Posted by on December 7th, 2010 at 9:37 am

Job Title: SoupCycler Extraordinaire
Company/Organization: SoupCycle
This position has been filled.

General Description:
SoupCycle is looking for an energetic, upbeat and strong-legged person who can brave the winter rains of Portland and still be smiling when they deliver soup to customers. Someone willing to jump in wherever needed and a passion for sustainability and bicycles is a must. You must be physically able to lift 75 lbs and pedal a bike trailer carrying up to 215 lbs.

The position is 15-25 hours/week split Mondays-Thursdays, with most of your time out on the bike and some time spent helping the soup crew in the kitchen. As we grow, so will your weekly hours- eventually maxing out at 25-30 hours/week. You’ll need a sturdy bike to attach to our soup trailer for deliveries.

This position will last through the spring of 2011, with a good chance of transitioning into a permanent position depending on the seasonal flow of soup business.

Here’s what we’re looking for:
-Someone who genuinely likes people. There’ll be a lot of customer interaction while you deliver, so strong customer service is a must.
-Good at representing SoupCycle to your fellow Portlanders.
-Excitement about food and sharing that with customers during deliveries.
-Ability to wield a kitchen knife and chop vegetables like it’s nobody’s business.
-Occasional help at weekend street fairs and catering gigs.
-Other business skills are a major plus- including cooking/kitchen experience, business, sales, graphic and web design.

Pay is $10 an hour plus a small monthly bike upkeep stipend and a generous soup allowance.
