Sorry. This job has been filled.

Job Title
SoupCycler Extraordinaire


Job Description
Do you get excited by the challenge of working on your bike, pulling a hefty trailer and delivering awesome organic foods? We’re a small Portland company that makes and delivers organic soups using local ingredients. Each week we cook three different soups (meaty, veggie, and vegan) and then deliver them to the masses of Portland by bicycle. So far we’ve done 97,000 bicycle deliveries and we’re hiring a new SoupCycler. Are you our SoupCycling match made in heaven?

We have a great crew of people who are passionate about bicycle delivery. 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. This position is pretty rad if we do say so ourselves. It’s a combination of working in the kitchen one day each week and delivering soups two days/week. One lucky candidate will be chosen for this position.

Here’s what we’re looking for:
-An authentic people-person. There’ll be a lot of customer interaction while you deliver and strong customer service is a must.
-A safe cyclist (uses hand-signals, wears helmet, respects drivers, etc)
-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.
-Physically able to lift 75 lbs and pedal a bike trailer carrying up to 215 lbs.
-A sturdy bike to attach to our soup trailer for deliveries (you get to use your bike, we provide the trailer).
-Other business skills are a major plus, including sales and kitchen experience.

The position:
22-26 hours per week split Mondays-Wednesday, with most of your time out on the bike and part in the kitchen.

Approximate hours are…
Mondays (kitchen): 8am-6pm
Tuesdays (deliveries): 8am-4pm
Wednesdays (deliveries): 8am-4pm

If you’re interested in being an integral part of a bicycle-based business then jump aboard our soupy sailboat.

Monthly bike upkeep stipend
Vacation benefits and accident insurance after one year
The ability to work for a mission-driven company with passionate coworkers
Generous soup allowance

How to Apply
Send an email to, with 2-3 paragraphs telling us why you’re interested in working for SoupCycle, your bicycling background and all relevant skills.

Happy Slurping!
