UK-based EU Sales Representative

UK Based
Did you know that over 30% of fresh produce grown in the world goes to waste and never reaches consumers?

At Hazel Technologies, Inc., we think this waste is unacceptable. We are a USDA-funded startup company that is reducing the huge amounts of waste in our global food supply chain every day. Our work has been featured in TechCrunch, the Chicago Tribune, and Crain’s Chicago Business, and we need your help to expand our impact!

Job Description: 

The UK-based EU Sales Representative position at Hazel Technologies’ London office will be responsible for customer relationship management and business development for our growing customer base in either the Southern Europe or Northern Europe and South African territories.
