We stand firmly in the belief that "Sell-in" and Sales are only 20% off our job.  Events, staff motivation, Retailer/buyer support, brand marketing, clinics and merchandising make up the 80% of sell-through - which is critical to the success of all of our brands.  Our buyers rely on us to make their jobs easier.  Our retailers rely on us to be an asset to their business.

  • You thrive in an independant, fast-paced environment
  • You can think on your feet and troubleshoot problems
  • You are solutions oriented.
  • You love traveling locally, regionally and sometimes internationally!
  • You are tenacious and follow-through on your committments
  • You are team oriented and look for ways to improve everything around you. 
  • ...and you would wilt, shrivel and die in a cubicle farm ....or are doing so now.  

The ideal candidate will be living or moving to Portland, Oregon or the surrounding area.  Owning a dog is not a requirement, but highly encouraged. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
