Shaka Tea, a growing, 100% plant-based, 0g sugar/0cal, herbal Hawaiian tea company is expanding! We are looking for experienced and high-energy Area Sales Managers with deep ties in the region who believe in our mission, vision and commitment to health of our consumers and sustainable agriculture in Hawaii. As a fast-paced startup, you must have a high degree of drive, initiative and flexibility. Having a joyful personality is a major plus.
The Area Sales Managers are accountable for selling and managing Shaka Tea across all channels, overseeing and managing our growing DSD network. Developing and managing programs to generate and increase sales of Shaka Tea is the primary focus of this role, in addition to working closely with management to achieve sales goals and increase brand reach and velocity in the Denver, CO metro area.

Critical for success in this role is a highly entrepreneurial candidate who will work closely with our distributors in retail and food service, with a major focus on growing case sales at store and chain level. Regular distributor ride-withs, sales meetings and customer account calls are crucial for winning in this territory and growing Shaka Tea sales.
A deep commitment to sustainability and socially-driven business practice at large scale is essential. A highly competitive attitude with a deep sense of appreciation for the ‘thrill of the win’ and belief that socially-driven enterprise CAN become big businesses is important. We want every day to be filled with joyous work and create a culture rooted in the habit of winning whilst simultaneously practicing ‘be the aloha (goodness, kindness, love, respect)’ that we wish to share with our 0g sugar, healthy, sustainably grown, Hawaiian, herbal teas.
