About Ripple

Ripple produces the most innovative and consistent products in the marijauna market, including: Ripple Dissolvables, the O.G. fast-acting, water-soluble powder; Ripple Gummies, clinically proven to be 2X faster than the competition; and Ripple Quicksticks, the most convenient and fun way to get the fastest THC.

At Ripple, our mission is to improve people’s lives through cannabinoids. We give people consistent experiences they can count on, and we give those experiences two times faster. We pride ourselves on great products, great people, and great science. We are singularly focused on quality, which to us means doing things the right way, right from the start. We know that success isn’t found in shortcuts or silver bullets. We put in the work, and damn right we’re proud of it. This is a wild, wild industry, and we love working in it, but only with those who want to do things right.

About the job

  • Ripple is a 100% vaccinated company. All employees must either be fully vaccinated or in the process of becoming fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

At Ripple, we believe marketing is a contact sport and intercepting and educating consumers is vital for the success of the brand. Our Brand Ambassadors are often the first experience a consumer has with our company  and our products, and it’s imperative that the experience is positive, memorable, and effective. This isn’t a “trade show” gig, this is a permanent position where you will work independently at your territory’s medical and adult-use dispensaries, promote the unique features and benefits of Ripple, and build authentic relationships with budtenders and retail staff.

Your role is to educate a wide range of audiences about Ripple in a meaningful and genuine way. We don’t take the local mall’s food court “free sample” approach. We engage with consumers by asking them thoughtful questions, so we can understand their needs and guide them through our product offerings. 

Ultimately, you are the face of the Ripple brand in your territory. Your attitude, approach, and abilities will directly impact the success of our field marketing efforts and growth within our accounts. While the majority of your time will be spent within retail locations, you will also be called in to support larger events and grand openings.

What you’ll be responsible for:

  • Working a minimum of 3 shifts (9 hours), with the potential to work as many as (25) hours a week depending on your availability and market needs.
  • Gathering vital information and intel from events and in-store activations and completing digital reports within 24 hours after your event or shift.
  • Managing a small inventory of promotional swag and material, including in-store vendor day collateral (table, signage, rug). 
  • Working with management to understand the competitive landscape and market trends. 
  • Capturing in-store information such as merchandising and branding points.
  • Representing the Ripple brand and effectively communicating our value propositions and technical differentiators

What we’ll love about you:

  • You’re responsible and reliable. You show up with your best self, every time. 
  • You’re organized and proactive. You love using tools and systems that make you more effective and efficient in your work.
  • You have a flexible schedule, with open availability nights/weekends for (3) hour shifts.  
  • You’re a natural extrovert who loves spending time with people of all stripes. You love the challenge of initiating discussion with total strangers. 
  • You have an understanding and passion for the THC market and are eager to learn more!

What you’ll love about us:

  • We are a team of competent, motivated, diverse, and decent adults.
  • This isn’t your typical 9-5 desk job...actually, it’s not a desk job at all. 
  • There is growth potential. Really. We will nurture your development if you demonstrate a desire to learn.
  • Full mileage reimbursement

Qualifications:

  • 1+ years of experience in a public-facing role (bonus points if you have experience in food/hospitality or retail) or currently enrolled in a college or university studying communications, marketing, or public relations.
  • OUTGOING. You’re not shy, you’re not quiet, you’re not easily intimidated. You are often the “life of the party,” but responsible enough to show up on time for your shift the next day. 
  • Comfortable using digital platforms and technology to input data, organize your schedule, and communicate with other team members.
  • Ability to learn and communicate brand-specific features and terminology of Ripple products.
  • Entrepreneurial, adaptive, and collaborative.
  • Must live in your assigned territory (no relocation assistance offered).
  • Clean driving record with reliable transportation. You will be reimbursed for mileage to/from events.
  • 21+ 
  • Ripple is a 100% vaccinated company. All employees must either be fully vaccinated or in the process of becoming fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

Compensation:

  • $25/hr with the potential to earn additional compensation based on event performance and metrics.
