We’re hiring for the positions of Technology Coordinator and Physical Plant Manager.

 

People’s is hiring for the positions of Technology Coordinator and Physical Plant Manager.  People’s is a dynamic and complex living workplace: a grocery store, a member-owned cooperative, a collective and much more.

The Tech Coordinator works with People's Co-op information systems, provides technical support to staff, maintains technology and addresses co-op equipment needs.  In addition to offering tech training and support to all co-op staff and teams in achieving goals, the Tech Coordinator serves the co-op in working more healthfully and intelligently with technology.  This position is also responsible for all computers and peripherals, cash registers, printers, copiers, phone systems and extensions.

The Physical Plant Manager is responsible for maintaining and developing the indoor and outdoor spaces of the co-op using sustainable building and maintenance practices and ensuring that all equipment is in good working order and that the Co-op is clean and safe.

Both positions also work shifts on the retail floor where they are responsible for accurate and courteous cashiering, providing prompt and welcoming customer service, keeping the store fully stocked, and taking care of how the store looks and feels.

Both of these positions also require in-store co-management as a member of our worker collective. As a collective, we manage our Co-op prudently as a service to People’s member-owners, in line with the goals established by their elected stewards, the Board of Directors. In addition, the Co-op and collective are committed to fostering human rights and social and economic justice in our community and workplace.  Making a commitment to People’s Co-management requires hard-work, dedication, high yet reasonable expectations, bravery, compassion, flexibility and a willingness to grow.

The positions currently being offered are each 32-40 hours per week with some on-call time and flexibility in making your own schedule. The compensation includes: $12.58/hr to start plus a fabulous benefits package: Medical & Dental Insurance (including access to Naturopathic Doctors & Acupuncturists), paid personal time off, annual raises, a 19% discount on purchases at the co-op, a Staff Benefits Exchange Program (reduced rate services from participating wellness practitioners & bike mechanics), along with an empowered work environment.

The Technology Coordinator position is open until filled.  You must complete an application in order to be considered for an interview..  You may submit your application via email HERE, or you can drop it off at the store.
