Job: Bike delivery/Waste Reduction Ninja – GO Box

Job Title *
Bike delivery/Waste Reduction Ninja

Company/Organization *
GO Box

Job Description *
Do you get excited by the challenge of working on your bike, pulling a hefty trailer and helping reduce waste?

We’re a small, mission-driven company that provides reusable take out containers to downtown food vendors and their customers. So far we’ve eliminated the use of nearly 120,000 disposable containers, and we’re hiring a new bicycle delivery person to help us achieve our mission of doing away with throw away!

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 and pickup reusable GO Boxes to and from customers.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

A safe and courteous cyclist (respects drivers, uses hand-signals, wears helmet, etc).
Responsible, reliable, detail-oriented and self-directed.
Somebody that can work independently and has a good head for numbers.

The position:

We need a rider to take over a Wednesday and Friday route. Each route is about 2-4 hours long, and can generally be done anytime in the 10-4 time frame.

If you’re interested in being an integral part of a mission-driven, bicycle-based business we’d love to hear from you!

Compensation: $14/hour as an independent contractor.

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