Brand Ambassador - OR, WA, NY, CT

RISE Brewing Co is looking for an energetic team member to help staff events and product demos. We are a nitro cold-brew coffee startup with award winning organic, non-GMO and kosher products. Think Guinness meets iced coffee, with a frothy head, no dairy and no additives. An infusion of nitrogen gives RISE its distinctive creamy cascade.

We distribute nitro cold brew coffee cans and kegs to grocery stores, offices, bars/restaurants and cafes throughout Oregon, Washington, Northern California, and the East Coast, and are always expanding. We are looking for brand ambassadors to not only serve coffee, but to convey our story to visitors to gain wholesale accounts and form new business partnerships.

Events/In-Store Demos: 1-4 per week (est. 5-25 hours weekly). Weekend availability is highly valued!

What you’ll do:

Serve delicious nitro cold brew coffee to our customers (It’s served like a beer from a tap, couldn’t be easier! We will also show you how to tap a keg & anything else necessary to run the shop, events or demos). Tell our brand story and educate customers about office delivery options or in store shoppers about our canned offerings. Have an upbeat attitude – customer service is key. You will host many demos and some events alone, so independent problem-solving skills and a high degree of integrity are critical. We are looking for the right fit over experience, so reach out if this sounds like the right role for you!
