About The Position

Company
Everflux Technologies is an early stage regenerative agtech startup that makes cutting-edge natural and biological inputs for agriculture. Our mission is to transform the way we farm in America and the world, to work in harmony with nature, grow healthier crops and reverse climate change. Our products deliver superior performance while improving soil and the environment, at a competitive price. They include a liquid biostimulant, an inoculated biochar and a non-toxic natural pest repellent. The methods were invented by a pioneering organic and biodynamic farmer.
 
Role & Responsibilities
The primary job of the operations manager is to run our manufacturing and warehousing facility. Currently this demands about 20 hours a week, but this could quickly ramp up to full-time as the company expands. Activities will primarily include:
 
·       Manufacturing product through a fermentation process
·       Overseeing supply chain and deliveries to the facility
·       Occasionally sourcing new suppliers
·       Working with contract manufacturing and packaging partners
·       Warehousing product and keeping track of inventory
·       Fulfilling and shipping orders to customers
·       Keeping the facility organized and clean
·       Troubleshooting problems as they arise
·       Planning for scaling-up and opening of new facilities
 
Skills & Qualifications
 
·       Experience in warehousing and logistics
·       Ability to operate a forklift
·       Organized, meticulous and pays attention to detail
·       Excellent problem solver who is able to anticipate problems that might arise
·       Not afraid to get dirty
·       Able to perform physically strenuous tasks
·       Experience with, or an understanding of, fermentation (beer, wine, kombucha) is a plus
·       Owning a pick-up truck or other vehicle for transporting materials is a plus
·       Basic computer skills, including ability to use email, MS Office programs, Google documents and other cloud-based software
 
Benefits
Looking for a career where you can do good for the world and do well financially at the same time? That’s what we’re all about. As this is an early stage company, there is significant upside in the equity package. Additional benefits include:
 
·       Work for a mission-driven company that is solving some of the world’s biggest problems, including food security and sustainability, water pollution and climate change
·       Support and empower the often-unsung heroes of society: farmers
·       Opportunity to help set many of the standard procedures for the company’s operations
·       Opportunity for promotion to Chief Operations Officer and overseeing what will eventually be a national presence
·       Competitive wage
