Job Description

Groundwork Coffee specializes in batch-roasted, certified organic coffees and artisanal teas. From our humble roots as a rare book store and cafe back in 1990, Groundwork would go on to become one of the first certified organic coffee roasters in Southern California, as well as the largest organic coffee roaster in Los Angeles. A truly local pioneer in fair trade and fairly traded coffee and tea sourcing, we remain committed to sustainable business practices, including maintaining direct relationships with growers and importers who promote responsible coffee and tea production. From the ground up, Groundwork is steadfast in its commitment to the values of quality, sustainability and community.

We are currently looking to hire a career-minded candidate for the position of Sales & Business Development Representative to service Portland, OR.

The successful candidate will be responsible for growing market share within the territory. Qualified individuals will process direct B-to-B sales and closing experience in markets such as -- but not limited to -- grocery, food & beverage, coffee service, or office supplies. As a Sales & Business Development Representative, you will visit customers' locations on a scheduled basis, perform basic equipment preventative maintenance, analyze account purchases while looking for opportunities, and prospect for new business.
