Who You Are:

  • Experience analyzing monthly and weekly sales trends based on reports, metrics, KPI's, and creating meaningful changes to affect positive results
  • Experience hiring and training new salespeople
  • Track record of leading by example - demonstrating that the best sales leaders are at their core all-star individual contributors
  • Bachelor's Degree preferred


  • Experience working in CPG, subscription, food and/or tech space is a huge plus!
