GO Box Needs a Rider!

Do you get excited by the challenge of working on your bike, pulling a hefty trailer, and helping to reduce waste?

We’re a small, mission-driven company that provides reusable takeout containers to downtown food vendors and their customers.

We’re looking for an energetic, upbeat, and strong-legged person who can brave the winter rains of Portland and still be smiling when they deliver and pick up reusable GO Boxes to customers.

So far we’ve eliminated the use of almost 90,000 disposable containers, and we’re hiring a new bicycle delivery person to help us achieve our mission of doing away with throw away!

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • A safe and courteous cyclist (respects drivers, uses hand-signals, wears helmet, etc)
  • Someone who is responsible, reliable, and self-directed.
  • A person with a sturdy bike to pull our trailer for deliveries (you use your bike, we provide the trailer).
  • Somebody that is able to follow directions, work independently, and has a good head for numbers.

The position:

We need a rider to start by filling in a few hours a week on an as-needed basis, which we expect to turn into something more regular over time. We pick up and deliver food containers in downtown Portland Mon-Fri, from about 10 am to about 3 pm, and most GO Box shifts are about 2-4 hours long.

If you’re interested in being an integral part of a bicycle-based business, we’d love to hear from you!

Compensation: $12/hour

How to Apply: Send an email to laura(at)goboxpdx.com with 2-3 paragraphs telling us why you’re interested in working for GO Box, your bicycling background, and all relevant skills.
