Tradewinds Specialty Imports
Chantilly, Virginia

Job Location: DMV Area
Washington DC, Maryland and Northern/ Southern Virginia

Position: Sales Representative

What we have to offer: Tradewinds Specialty is a DMV based importing/distributing company of fine alcoholic beverages. Our portfolio consists of a collection of sustainable, organic and wines, spirits and craft beer/cider from the USA, Europe and South America. We are a diverse, yet small team of fun people, all with families of our own. Our success as a company is a direct representation of who we are as individuals and we take our reputations very seriously. We are a dynamic, forward thinking, hard working bunch. We collaborate, suggest ways to improve as a team, execute tasks in an efficient manner, and after that…we celebrate together and move on to the next project. On a day-to-day basis our assigned tasks and responsibilities are accomplished independently. However, we stay in close contact and help each other out whenever needed. We get excited about tackling new projects, and have worked hard to create and establish systems that will allow the right person(s) to jump right in, add his/her unique flair to our current crew, and follow along quite easily.

We are looking to grow our Sales team immediately, so if you are someone who is looking for a career that guarantees growth, (both personal, financial and professional) enjoy working on your own without needing to be micro managed, and have some knowledge or desire to learn more about the expansive world of wine and spirits, then please keep reading!

What we need from you: Although we are a small company, we have a big portfolio, big territory and big clients, and big goals that are always being expanded. Having your own car that is dependable enough to be your mobile “office” is an absolute must. After that, you’ve got to be the type of person who is capable of seeing the word “no” as a response, not a final answer, have a strong inner focus on self-improvement, be super organized, efficient and motivated to see your own financial growth. In order to follow our systems in place you should know how to use computer software (calendar, excel, email, social media etc.) to help organize your time and track your progress. Your main focus would always be on opening new accounts, growing existing accounts, constantly setting and meeting new goals.
Our company is focused on fine wines and spirits, so although it could be a relatively simple transition (theoretically) for someone who has a solid working knowledge of wines, regions and food pairings, this is absolutely not a necessity! Regardless of prior knowledge or experience, you’ve got to be eager to dedicate time to independently study our portfolio, and have a natural hunger to learn more in order to be successful at your task of selling our products.
We need you to be friendly, approachable, good at managing the many different personalities you will inevitably come across on a daily basis. Patience, understanding, tolerance, and acceptance of others is a big deal to us and is completely non-negotiable.

If you feel like this speaks to you, we would love to meet you and begin the conversation that will hopefully lead to you being the next member of our crew! Please send your resume and a brief bio to Esalgado@TradewindsSpecialty and
