Who is Rodeo CPG?
We are a small, growing team of people from both grocery and tech backgrounds who are working to meld technology and CPG expertise into a first-of-its-kind vertically integrated sales solution for better-for-you brands.
We believe that there is no intelligent and comprehensive infrastructure to sell brands into retail that meets the demands of today’s rapidly changing landscape. We believe it is important to study and anticipate the future of grocery, not simply react defensively to it. We believe that building a quality product requires listening to our colleagues and customers. These beliefs drive us toward achieving our mission of helping better-for-you brands take market share from worse-for-you incumbent brands.
We are passionate about helping to shape the future of grocery. We love better-for-you products and enjoy spending time with their founding teams. We are interested in discovering, and helping to develop, practical use cases for technology to improve outcomes for better-for-you products. We thrive in an entrepreneurial environment and prefer transparency and asynchronous work over endless meetings.
The Director of Sales works in collaboration with the entire sales team. In this role, you will establish relationships with key retailers and distributors, execute critical selling initiatives, and communicate the results to both the RodeoCPG team and clients, leveraging our tech platforms. Our small but mighty team utilizes best-in-class tools and technology and this role requires a willingness to dig in and learn new things in a supportive and collaborative environment. This is an opportunity to work with some of the most dynamic and impressive founders in CPG. At Rodeo, we champion not only our fantastic brands, but each other, and our secret sauce IS our team.
