About The Position
Seeking a highly motivated, entrepreneurial Sales / Manager Brand Ambassador with 3+ years of relevant sales experience to join the founding team of a recently launched, disruptive liqueur
What is UME Plum Liqueur?
UME Plum Liqueur is a newly created plum-flavored spirit founded in 2020 by two successful women from high-powered careers in fashion and finance. UME was created with a vision of bringing to market a drink that is an experience in and of itself.
With an alcohol content of 17%, UME lives in the fast growing aperitif category. Made with real plums, dark cherries and grapes, UME is delightfully tart and mildly sweet. The magic of UME is not limited to its ethereal taste - with its royal purple hue that transforms as it is mixed, UME is a Purple Potion, unlike anything available on the market today.
About The Opportunity:
We launched UME Plum Liqueur in NYC in June 2021 to an overwhelming response, selling out the first production run in just two weeks. In the first month of launching, the Purple Potion has achieved menu placements at top tier restaurants and mixology bars, we have been featured alongside large brands at high profile cultural events, while expanding our presence in off-premise accounts.
Due to our rapid growth, we are seeking a highly motivated, entrepreneurial Sales Manager / Brand Ambassador to join the team at an exciting moment in the Company’s development. This candidate will have the opportunity to work alongside the founding team as we rapidly expand UME’s presence across the NY region.
The ideal candidate brings 3+ years of industry experience, including relationships and knowledge of the NYC market. Excitement and passion about an opportunity to introduce a completely new brand to the market is a must. Creativity, enthusiasm, and a passion for learning and growing alongside our product will be keys to success in this role.
Why is this a great opportunity?
You have the opportunity to change the way people drink, reshape and revitalize the cocktail landscape. You will be joining a visionary founding team who developed a game-changing beverage that brings delight and joyful surprise to those who experience it. This is not a job in a major corporate machine - you will be responsible for creating strategy, directly affecting the development and growth trajectory of an exciting new brand. Compensation will include equity incentive to align the Company’s success with yours.
Working at UME Plum Liqueur is a chance to question the staid, old guard of drinking and celebrate a new era of togetherness and sharing genuinely delicious, sensual beverages.
