Salesperson extraordinaire

hiring sales ad salespeople


We’re a profitable, female-founded, Kitchener/Waterloo startup funded by Y Combinator, the world’s most commercially successful accelerator program. We make customized packaging for small businesses. We recently surpassed $2 million in sales, and growing. We work with 450 businesses in Canada and the US.

Our goal is to make drop-dead-gorgeous, branded packaging available to all businesses. In doing so, we’re opening up the $130 billion food and beverage packaging manufacturing industry to the small and feisty players among us – something that hasn’t been done before.

We’re looking for a few great salespeople. What’s worked for us: we’re compassionate, cheery, and helpful. We love food businesses; we’ve been there ourselves. We coach and empower our clients to blossom into the absolute best they can be. We’re educators; we love sharing our deep understanding of lithographic printing technology, the bright splendour of pure Pantone inks, the unforgettable draw of a great pattern and a clever font. We want to talk about strategy, and the return that’s possible for the small business that enables its customers to market on its behalf. We hold ourselves to the highest standards, and are building the type of business we want to see in the world. We show up, always.

We’re poised to transform, refresh and inspire an industry that represents 1.2% of GDP.
