ABOUT THE COMPANY

Kin Slips was founded by a passionate group of entrepreneurs hell bent on reimagining cannabis and developing the most efficient products possible. Our commitment to providing the best cannabis experience began with our sublingual strips—a revolutionary infused product that is discreet, reliable, all natural, and that heightens the way cannabis is used in everyday life. Beyond the quality of our product, we intend to inspire trust in the science and benefits of cannabis through meaningful conversations and education at the community level. 

We are currently looking for individuals to join our growing team, folks that share and practice the fundamental values shaping our company and lending to a rewarding work / life experience. 

Our Values

  • Take pride and never settle for standard

  • Stay hungry to learn and eager to teach

  • Be mindful, reliable, and accessible


Brand Builder

Multiple locations: San Diego, East Bay + Sacramento, and Los Angeles - $20/hour + travel expenses

We are looking for some awesome people to help us take our Brand Builder program to the next level. As a Brand Builder, you will interact directly with consumers, retailers, industry partners, and the cannabis community at large to educate them about Kin Slips and sublingual science. Brand Builders are strong communicators who promote trust in our brand, the science of cannabis, and engage with the local cannabis community.

In this role you will be expected to:

  • Develop and maintain relationships with retailer partners, distribution partners, and the cannabis community at large.

  • Be the face of Kin Slips through hosting product demos, staff trainings, and attending cannabis events as a member of our team.

  • Enter accurate data into our internal CRM to ensure clear communication and maintain a company-wide source of truth.

  • Create and implement strategies for identifying new prospects, and identify best practices to continuously improve our business strategy.

  • Keep up to date with educational materials, cannabis regulations, and other industry relevant information.

  • Maintain a reliable form of transportation and make in-person visits to retail partners.

What makes you the right person?

  • You align with our mission, support our product, and are generally all around awesome.

  • You aren't afraid of failure and enjoy trying new things.

  • You probably enjoy consuming cannabis, or at least feel passionate about its healing effects.

  • You have an understanding of the California cannabis regulatory framework. If you don't know what the regs are, this job probably isn't a fit for you.

  • You can speak eloquently about cannabis, science, and other relevant topics, and genuinely like talking to people.

  • You live in the area, and have a strong desire to get to know the people shaping the industry in your town.

  • Also, it’s a very mobile position. You need a car and the ability to work flexible hours.

As a professional, be buttoned up!

  • You write full sentences when you write e-mails (with no grammatical errors!).

  • You don't need to be micromanaged, because when you say you will do something, you actually do it.

  • You see something isn't working. Your attitude is more along the lines of "let's fix it!" rather than "UGH NOTHING WORKS!"

  • You like to go above and beyond. Setting, achieving, and surpassing goals is your thing.

  • You are looking to build a career with us, and want to help scale the company.

  • You understand relationships take time to develop, and are willing to put in that time.

Sound fun?  Sound like you?
