FLOOR TEAM NYC – NATURAL WINE & CRAFT SPIRIT SPECIALIST
Verve is a leading wine retailer for quality-seeking and curious drinkers. We dig wine made by small and limited production winemakers and skilled craftsmen whose connection to the land is just as important as what goes into the bottle. Our commitment to good wine in all ways means that for us, wine can be both fun and fancy, but never intimidating or exclusionary. Over 50K (and growing) wine drinkers trust us for everyday bottles, collection-worthy gems, inspiration for hanging out with friends, and everything in between. Our digital platform offers nationwide shipping and fast and convenient delivery from our brick and mortar locations in Tribeca, NYC, Pac Heights, SF (named Best Designed Wine Shop in the US) and Lincoln Park, Chicago.
We’re looking to add a team member who’s deep into the world of natural wine and craft spirits. Maybe a little obsessed with one or both. You are creative, maybe with some background in design, or music, or art. You love to stay ahead of trends, tell stories in creative ways, and search out new winemakers and distillers. You thrive on creative energy and love looking for ways to get good juice in the hands of curious drinkers.
This position is a member of our Floor Team and works full time from our Tribeca Store, engaging with customers in person, on the phone, or via email.
