Jobs - Sales and Operations Manager

Who We Are

Ski The East is a fast growing outdoor apparel brand based in Burlington, VT. We have been building the finest ski lifestyle clothing since 2005 all while shredding Volkswagen-sized moguls, neck deep powder, and rock hard ice with a smile on our faces. Our company has a casual office atmosphere and plenty of excellent microbreweries, farm-to-table restaurants, and America’s “6th Great Lake” (Lake Champlain) right out our front door. This year we’re looking to grow the Ski The East team and expand on exciting new opportunities.

We recently moved into the best office space in the state: Hula Lakeside - which houses a cafe, gym, bar, indoor gardens as well as a beach surf club and bike path mere steps away. Did we mention the beautiful Green Mountains nearby that have the deepest snow and best ski resorts in the region? 

 

Who We're Looking For

Do you have job experience in sales and warehouse operations? Do you know the Ski The East brand and outdoor industries well? Could you sell sawdust to a lumbermill? Do you geek out on ski equipment, apparel, and any gear associated with sliding down snow on 2 sticks? Are you an excel wizard who has gone inception-level deep on spreadsheets and number crunching? Are you an empathetic and patient person who loves to problem solve?  

If you answered yes to these, live within daily commuting distance of Burlington, VT, and have a reasonably well developed sense of humor, then you just might be the right candidate for noble entry into our Wolf Pack. This job will be approximately 50% sales (B2B and B2C) & 50% warehouse, shipping, and customer service logistics. The person in this position will work closely with our marketing team as well as manage a Customer Service Associate who will handle day-to-day customer service issues. We are seeking a candidate that can thrive in a fast paced, multi-tasking, small company environment with our team of 9 people.
