Sorry. This position has been filled.
Soup season is here and we’re hiring one SoupCycler to deliver soup and help in our kitchen. We’re 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.
Willingness 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. You’ll need a sturdy bike to attach to our soup trailer for deliveries.
What We’re Looking For:
-An authentic people-person. There’ll be a lot of customer interaction while you deliver, so strong customer service is a must.
-A safe cyclist (uses hand-signals, wears helmet, respects drivers, etc)
-Good at representing SoupCycle to your fellow Portlanders.
-Excitement about food and sharing that with customers during deliveries.
-Ability to commit to working with SoupCycle for a one-year minimum.
-Excitement to work with a small, local business.
-Ability to wield a kitchen knife and chop vegetables like it’s nobody’s business.
-Other business skills are a major plus, including sales and kitchen experience.
12-16 hours per week split Mondays-Thursdays, with most of your time out on the bike and part in the kitchen. Approximate hours are Mondays-Thursdays: 8am-12pm.
Pay is $10/hour plus a monthly bike upkeep stipend and a generous soup allowance. If you’re interested in being an integral part of a bicycle-based business then jump aboard our soupy sailboat.
How to Apply
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, including two to three paragraphs telling us why you’re interested in working for SoupCycle, your bicycling background and all relevant skills.
