Zero Waste Jam wants jam loving business partner

Zero Waste Jam - The Good Tribe - Fair fair

Zero Waste Jam - Fairfair - 02 We’re looking for an entrepreneurial key person to the Zero Waste Jam team: a person who’s passionate about food and sustainability, in particular jam and related products.

Your task will be everything jam: coordinating production, quality management,  sourcing glasses, fruits and other ingredients and distribution.

If you’re looking for a regular 9 to 5 job you can stop reading now. There’s neither regularity nor pay, nor fixed hours attached to this position. While we’re at it, this whole thing could flop before you’ve said “Yes yes yes I wanna do this!”.

Well, now that we’ve established the basics – and you’re still reading – things are getting interesting!

This is a great opportunity for you to create your own job, management position, or even become a co-owner of Zero Waste Jam in the future. We get paid when we sell jam, as goes for all of the team. It’s not going to make us rich (at least not at first), but as the start-up grows there’s a chance to generate income.

If you’re the person we’re looking for you most likely have lots of cooking and kitchen experience, you’re passionate about high quality food and want to share your knowledge and experience with other people, you like to work independently in a strong team, and you’d love to have a key role in an adventurous, dynamic start-up.

You preferably live in Vienna or are free to travel to Vienna a couple of times per month. You’re comfortable working in German as well as in English. It really doesn’t matter if you’re a student or have years and years of working experience. What matters is that we share goals and values, that we’re productive together, and that we enjoy each other’s company.

Our agenda for 2013 is to recruit and educate jam producers (Zero Waste Jam entrepreneurs), source fruits in order to cook jam, and establish Zero Waste Jam on the Austrian market. Our objectives for the future are to establish our business model in other countries, organize workshops, a vivid blog, zero waste cookbooks etc.

The future is ours to create!
