Job: SoupCycler Extraordinaire – SoupCycle

Sorry. This position has been filled.

Job Title
SoupCycler Extraordinaire


Job Description
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.

The Details:
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, including two to three paragraphs telling us why you’re interested in working for SoupCycle, your bicycling background and all relevant skills.

Happy Slurping!
Founder, SoupCycle
