Full Time

DisSolves - Business Development Manager

Company Background:


DisSolves makes a natural, edible packaging that we use to pack single servings of powdered food products into pods, making them more environmentally friendly and convenient. DisSolves replaces the non-recyclable, foil packets currently used in beverage packaging with our seaweed-based packaging that comes from renewable, sustainably harvested, and vegan ingredients. In fact, DisSolves’ packaging is so gentle on the environment that it is actually healthy for people to eat. With our pods, the end-user simply drops the serving in water, mixes, and enjoys.


We are hiring another business development manager to take over a mix of existing accounts and new sales territory. To excel in this role you should be an active listener, have a compelling sales personality, and a hunger to chase and close new business from cold calls and inbound warm leads. The business development manager will be responsible for building relationships that will lead to new, indirect sales channels for DisSolves. Mainly these relationships will focus on contract packaging associations, contract pod packagers, eco-friendly packaging market places, and more.
