- H.Bloom, a flower and plant delivery service, is hiring for two positions — “one will focus on identifying and managing florists across the country who will fulfill deliveries in locations where we don’t currently have a floral market, while the second will work with our existing floral partners and oversee their fulfillment of the deliveries.” See posting below.
“H.Bloom is the fastest growing flower and plant delivery service in the world. We offer weekly flower and plant service to nearly 700 business customers such as hotels, restaurants, retailers, offices and buildings. Current customers include The Ritz Carlton Hotel, The W Hotel, Hugo Boss, Tesla Motors and Omega. Started just three years ago, H.Bloom is headquartered in New York City and currently operates in eleven cities across the country.
We’ll be embarking on a nationwide campaign with a luxury retailer to deliver flower arrangements to their top customers. The first project will run from about February 10 until around March 7. Then there will be a short break before we begin a second, much bigger campaign, which will run from the beginning of April into June.
We’re looking to fill two positions: one will focus on identifying and managing florists across the country who will fulfill deliveries in locations where we don’t currently have a floral market, while the second will work with our existing floral partners and oversee their fulfillment of the deliveries. Both roles will require intense attention to detail, the ability to juggle multiple balls at once, and the willingness to give feedback and request changes if arrangements aren’t meeting our standards.
This role will be paid weekly @ $14/hour. You can expect to work 40 hours each week with all overtime paid at time and a half. While there is no guarantee of follow-on work, it will be a good learning opportunity and a chance to work in a fast-paced start-up environment. If you’re interested, please submit a resume and brief cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Short-term Opportunity’ in the subject line. We are looking to interview and hire for this role immediately.
