We are open to candidates interested in combining 2 or all 3 of the following positions into a single full-time position if there is interest in doing so.
About Prudent Produce
Providing central Iowa with Good Food Delivered since 2010, Prudent Produce is a privately-owned food hub that operates from our family’s century farm with the joint purposes of helping people eat well all year long while providing an outlet for well-raised Iowa foods via our #GoodFoodDelivered service. To that end we believe in helping our customer partners access local when possible, always organic produce and a whole lot more, while purchasing products from grower partners at fair prices.
Positions available for immediate start.
Master of Orders
Each week, we coordinate orders of Good Food that will come from dozens of places in peak local growing season, and be distributed to hundreds of homes or organizations. We are looking for a detail-oriented person who can help us keep it all straight, make adjustments when things do not go as planned, and make sure that our consumers get the Good Food they depend upon.
This involves knowing what is available from farms and distributors on a weekly basis, creating the contents for our weekly pre-filled bins, monitoring the orders during our order cycle (noon Friday to 9AM Sunday), using our software tools to tabulate product demands, and communicating orders to the farms and distributors. Must be excellent with spreadsheets and software systems and an effective oral and written communicator.
This role will be 10-15 hours per week. 8:30AM to 12:30PM on Sunday is required. Another 4+ hours between noon Thursday and noon Friday is required. Another 1-2 hours on Saturday (remote, and flexible during the day on Saturday). Initially much of these hours will need to be onsite to become familiar with our process. After several weeks this could be partly or mostly remote. Pay starts at $20 / hour.
To apply, send an email to Tony Thompson ([email protected]) with the position(s) of interest as the subject.
Include a resume or link to a LinkedIn profile, as well as a brief explanation of your interest in and fit for the position.
