Do you love a good challenge? If you’re high energy, creative, organized and have a passion for locally produced products and craft beverages, then we want to meet you! The position we are looking to fill is tough, and the person that fills it needs to be as well. This position requires flexibility, a “can do” attitude and the drive to manage, promote and strengthen the Black Button brand message and mission. If this describes you, then please read on. You might just be the kind of crazy we need on our team.
THE CHALLENGE: The Black Button Brand Manager is charged with cultivating our brand platform, overseeing our brand messaging, and driving market growth throughout our target markets on the East Coast. This role requires knowledge of the many industry regulations and laws that vary by state. Positioned well for growth, we are still relatively unknown, especially outside of our home market. The brand strategy combines social media, online advertising, and guerilla marketing, with a mix of public relations and media outreach.
BRAND AMBASSADOR/CONSUMER EDUCATOR
We are looking for several part-time Brand Ambassadors who will be assigned to liquor store tastings and other offsite events throughout the Greater Buffalo Area.
- Bartending experience is ideal, but not a must
- Experience in sales is encouraged, but not required
- Certainly, an interest in craft spirits, cocktails, wine & beer would be needed!
Bartending experience is a must, along with an interest in craft spirits, cocktails and craft beer. As the Bartender, you join the team that represents Black Button Distilling as Consumer Educators in our Tasting Room. Responsibilities include product samplings, brand and process teaching, cocktail making, retail bottle sales and general guest entertainment as a hospitality professional.
Our Buffalo location is open Thursday and Friday evenings, Saturdays day & night and Sunday afternoons. We will consider candidates that are available for all or parts of these hours.
Additional work hours will be available in the bar when special events are booked on off days. Offsite work is available at festivals and liquor stores if applicants desire to represent us as a Brand Ambassador at sample and sell events.
To apply, send your résumé with a 1 page cover letter to cheers@BlackButtonDistilling.com
