-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.
-Ability to commit to working with SoupCycle for one year at minimum.
-Other business skills are a major plus including sales and kitchen experience.
-Excitement to work with a small, local business.

Approximate hours:
Every other Sunday: 12pm-4pm

Tuesdays: 8:30am-12:30pm
Wednesdays: 8:30am-12:30pm

Wednesdays: 8:30am-1:30pm
Fridays: 10:00am-2:00pm

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.
