Rivendell seeks an accomplished salesperson knowledgeable in landscaping/gardening to serve as sales representative to our landscaper, garden center, grower, and contractor customers, to increase revenue from existing markets, and to forge new markets in our region. This position will begin as soon as possible to make headway during our winter off-season and hit the ground running in spring, reporting to our office and traveling regularly to visit our customers within a 2-hour radius. Compensation will be negotiated hourly and/or commission-based. While some sales duties will still be needed in the off-season (part-time), the seasonality of our business means you’ll have plenty of free time in the winter to ski! Full time hours expected April – November (M-F only - closed on weekends). We are located within 1 hour drive of five ski resorts. On-farm housing may be available to candidates interested in relocating to the Roaring Fork Valley. Candidates are expected to have the experience, independence, and confidence to be self-directed - identifying and carrying out their sales duties and responsibilities autonomously. All our employees conduct a degree of inside sales, but we currently have no dedicated outside sales presence – that’s why we need you to help us grow!
Additional requirements: clean Motor Vehicle Record, valid Colorado driver’s license, computer skills including email and ability to use or learn Quickbooks Enterprise accounting software.
