Summary

Miss Grass is looking for a Illinois Brand Manager—an energetic mover and shaker who lives and breathes the Miss Grass ethos and wants to share it with others by growing the MG product line. The ideal candidate is extremely personable, strategic, resilient, creative, and motivated—a total superstar when it comes to sales, marketing partnerships and account management. You’ve got that entrepreneurial hustle, love the challenging and ever-changing environment of the cannabis industry, and thrive on the road and in the field. Above all, you know weed and love weed—you geek out about the science, cultivation, benefits, effects, and products, with a sensitivity for its complex history and a devotion to promoting conscious consumption.
You will identify, manage, and nurture relationships with dispensaries, buyers, budtenders and the MG community throughout Illinois. You’ll educate budtenders and consumers on Miss Grass’ brand story, mission, and unique product offering. Prior cannabis sales experience and relationships are definitely a plus, but we’ll train the right person. This role is full-time, based in Chicagoland area. Miss Grass is an equal opportunity employer. We consider all qualified applicants for employment without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, protected veteran status, disability or any other factors prohibited by law.
