About The Position
A high-performing, experienced Director of Sales for a new and exciting Southern hot sauce company. Recently profiled by Food & Wine Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, Southern Living and CBS This Morning. Lots of fun times ahead.
Red Clay is a modern Southern hot sauce and hot honey bringing a new kind of heat by putting flavor over fire. We’re a fast-growing food startup based in South Carolina, shaking up the hot sauce industry with healthful, delicious products and cool, digital-savvy branding. In the past 12 months, we’ve grown 4X year over year, and we’re forecasting to grow another 3-4X for 2020. This is an ideal time to join this exciting brand, recently featured on CBS This Morning, Food & Wine Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, Southern Living and Charleston Magazine. We launched at the Fresh Market nationwide in May and have confirmed rollouts for Whole Foods Market and Star Market in 2020.

About You

We are looking for a self-motivated, high-performing individual who can work independently but will also be a team-player in support an exciting, very fast-growing brand. The right candidate will have 3-5 years of direct sales experience in the food & beverage industry. She or he will have worked with both distributors and major accounts directly (preferably include UNFI). She or he is organized (can handle complex forms and manuals and follow instructions well), persevering (lots of follow-up via phone, email etc) and detail-oriented. The right candidate can charm, is energetic, loves being around people and doesn’t like taking no for an answer.
