We know that the job market is hot right now, so let us get right to the point. Why would you want to work with us? What sets us apart?
The position is currently available for 30 hours/week, $30-$35/hour depending on experience. The work schedule is Tuesday-Friday from 9am - approximately 5pm. About half our clients are in San Francisco, and half in the East Bay. Regardless of where we work for the day, we start at 9am in the East Bay, and end around 5pm back in the East Bay - and, of course, travel time to, between, and from clients is paid.
First, we are small, very small. You’d be our fifth team member. Two owners (business and life partners), two employees. We are parents, artists, caregivers, environmentalists, and outdoor enthusiasts. We are fascinated by plants. One of our owners has been in the field for 2+ decades, since teenagehood, and is committed to being the ethical boss he didn’t always have. We are rooted in the humanity of each other, of our clients, of all of Earth and her creatures.
The company is in a time of growth, and we imagine that the job you start with won’t be the job you end with. To begin with, this position will take on day-to-day management of our soon-to-be autonomous maintenance team and will participate in design and build projects.
Key required qualifications include prior experience with gardening, leadership, a desire to be in the horticulture field long-term, and reliable transportation to/from the Montclair Hills/Piedmont Pines area (a company truck is provided for on-the-job transportation).
