Sales Associate (f/m/d)

Job description

Local food for everyone
Hier, we ❤ food. We love shopping, cooking, and having friends and family over for a great meal.

You probably already know this, but most food from local producers tastes better, is more nutritious and better for the environment. These people, families, and companies put everything into making the greatest products like beverages, dairy, meat, spices or local specialties.
Unfortunately, today, it is much easier to find and buy food from everywhere else around the world, but nearby. Why? Because while the global food supply chain has gotten ever more connected and efficient, the local trade has not. And this has to change!

We are building the infrastructure for local food
. Hier connects ambitious retailers with local producers and provides the tools and services to enable them to grow. Hier brings local food to wherever you buy your groceries.
We do this by digitizing the entire sales and order process for direct trade between local food producers and their customers. 

Hier Foods is a venture-backed, fast-growing company founded by 2nd-time Founders Lara Hämmerle (Fintech Vantik) and Mark Jäger (Marketplace Stuffle). They are both from families of growers and merchants and have 25 years of combined experience in building and growing digital products.

We share our beautiful office with Github Co-Founders' new startup Chatterbug at SCNE in Berlin. While we love having people around, more than half of the team is remote.

We are currently looking for a Sales Associate to join our team and sell the products and technical infrastructure that will transform the food industry.

We are especially excited to hear from groups under-represented in software development like women, LGBTQIA, BPoC, migrants and humans with a migrant background as well as people with disabilities.
