Pod Foods is an early-stage disruptive food-tech startup focused on the B2B food supply chain. We are a remote team with hubs in SF and Chicago.

We are seeking out a vendor sales and success manager to help us qualify food manufacturers for our growing catalog and ensure their longer term success with the company.

This is a great opportunity to be an early employee at a fast growing company with a rapidly increasing customer base and strong revenue growth. Beyond working with a positive and supportive team, you will also be able to have the opportunity to positively impact the way food is being produced, distributed and consumed, so that consumers can have access to better food and environmentally sustainable practices can thrive.

Minimum Requirements:

-CRM experience (Hubspot a plus)
