Status: part time with full time potential
Tamarindo Board is a small family run Paddle and Surf business based in Hampton Roads. Our warehouse in is Chesapeake, VA. We have officially been in business since 2016. We are looking for a dependable, dynamic part time person to help with the day-to-day operations and sales, which can grow into a full-time position for the right person. Integrity and the ability to learn quickly are more important than experience. In addition to surf and paddle products, we also distribute Surrey Bikes (www.BeachSurreyBikes.com) and commercial arcade machines. This position requires someone that can think and operate like an entrepreneur, has excellent customer service and interpersonal skills, is able to problem solve independently, and learn a variety of tasks and skills needed to operate a small business.

Hourly pay with bonus/commissions. Full time salary potential.
We are hoping to find someone to start over the fall/winter who can work from our warehouse in Chesapeake and begin to become familiar with our products/company. Initially it will be doing odds and ends, shipping products and meeting with retail customers; then, if doing well, add a wholesale rep role. Flexible work hours/schedule but require 4-5 hours on Saturdays, and establish a schedule of 4-5 hours at least two days during the week. More hours may be needed in the spring/summer. We are pretty laid back and easy to work with, but do expect results, not just hanging out on the clock.
