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 220 lbs.
The position will start at approximately 15 hours/week split Monday-Wednesday. As we grow during this fall soupy season, so will your weekly hours- eventually maxing out at 20-25 hours/week. You’ll need a sturdy bike to attach to our soup trailer for deliveries.
Here's what we're looking for:
-Amazing customer service and a solid ambassador representing SoupCycle to your fellow Portlanders.
-Excitement about food and soup, 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 street fairs, catering or additional shifts Thursdays-Sundays.
-A one-year minimum commitment so you can get to know SoupCycle and become a vital part of the business.
-Other business skills are a plus, including cooking/kitchen experience, sales and web design.
Pay is $10 an hour plus a $25/month bike upkeep stipend and a generous soup allowance.
