About the role:

Okay, we’ve waffled long enough. So let’s get to the good bit: You.

As US Retail Sales Manager, your role sits within our US Sales and Marketing Team, reporting to the US General Manager.

You’ll be a strategic, passionate and dynamic sales leader, with proven experience of scaling large retail channels, ideally in CPG or technology companies. This is an exciting opportunity that offers the freedom to apply your commercial acumen and initiative to help drive the business.

Location: Remote but candidates will ideally be based in Northeast as the team regularly get together. Due to working hours with a UK team, we are unable to consider West Coast candidates.

Employment type: Permanent (please note, you must have the right to work in the USA)

Salary: Within the range of $130,000-$145,000 USD
