Production Team Member - Portland Bee Balm
Oregon, Portland , 97201 Portland USA

Hey there Portland!

Portland Bee Balm is a local, all-natural lip balm company and we are looking to hire a new full-time member of our Production Team to help out with our entire production process. The position’s schedule would be Monday through Friday at 40 hours a week, with flexible start and end times. No experience in this line of work is necessary, just a positive attitude and an eagerness to learn!

We are a small, 9-person team working together to make lip balm the best way we know how with the highest-quality ingredients we can source. We care about each other, our customers, our vendors, our local community, and the planet, and we strive to evaluate the impacts of all our decisions with care. We have an employee profit share program and an open-books policy, meaning all company financial information is shared with every employee. We are a growing company, and we want someone with drive, honesty, and integrity that is excited to join this kind of environment and continue to build it with us.

The work we enjoy on the Production Team is hands-on and tangible, and covers the entire start-to-finish of a tube of lip balm. Each of our batches is thousands of tubes, and the steps we take in our process are done by hand with care, attention to detail, and some complementary use of very simple machinery. This is a product people put on their bodies so we hold our work to a high standard, both personally and as a team. We enjoy working with our hands and get a lot of satisfaction from creating things each day.

Our company core values are listed below. If all this sounds good to you, get in touch!

Data-Informed Accountability

Numbers don’t lie.

You can’t spell accountability without ‘count.’

Own your mistakes (it’s okay, we’re human!)–once we know how it happened we can get value from the opportunity by learning what it has to teach us.

Continual Innovation and Improvement

Every year we should look back and be shocked and proud at how much progress we’ve made and how much we’ve improved.

We have respect for the finite resources of the planet and our time on it.

We build the road we’re on. We stay flexible and adaptable in our mindset and practices.

Human Team

Each voice is heard and considered/valued/respected.

Each person's role and contribution is essential in moving the company forward.

People do their best work when they are able to give sufficient focus and respect to priorities outside of work.

We support and rely on each other–we are self-driven in keeping our commitment to our teammates.

Be Honest with Reality

See things as they are, not as you wish them to be.

Paying more attention than anyone else is our superpower.

Portland Bee Balm is transparent about the company’s current state and where we are going.

Full-time M-F

$16.50/hour, biweekly payroll, and employee profit share (paid quarterly)

Company-matching retirement plan

Health insurance benefits (coverage costs shared between company and employee)

Paid vacation

Paid holidays

Convenient inner NE office/warehouse location

Transportation benefit

Great teammates to get stuff done with!
