Local Food Systems, Inc. (“LFS”) connects high-volume wholesale buyers existing technology and purchasing systems to aggregated, and reliable supply of good food.  More info here - http://localfoodsystems.com/

 Position:

LFS supply side sales lead needed! Qualify suppliers (farms), onboard them, facilitate sales, and help rapidly increase their bottom line! Also, help us grow out a supply side team, and eventually manage.

 Description:

LFS makes markets in the local food economy. To do this, we match producers supply to the high-volume buyers demand we bring those suppliers. This means matchmaking in any given market until critical mass is reached and a market is self-sustaining.

Responsibilities will include: identifying and qualifying farms and farm aggregators (suppliers) relative to buyer’s demand; contacting those suppliers and “selling them”; onboarding them to LFS’ technology; and helping them scale to meet demand.

The job is not limited to these duties - LFS is a startup and as such everyone must be willing to do everything. We are each in charge of our own, and the companies, success. So candidate must be a self-starter.

Ideal candidate will have experience in sales, understand generating a pipeline for results, and be able to be their own boss. Business of food knowledge is a plus, but not required; supply side experience a plus;  and a passion for good food is also expected.

 Compensation:

Compensation is currently a combination of equity and weekly consulting fee, but will turn into full time salary with excellent benefits very quickly.

 Location:

Northeast, US - Washington DC to Boston for the rest of 2012. Expanding rapidly thereafter.
