The Sales and Marketing Associate role requires an ability to work independently as well as part of a growing cooperative team of eco-geeks. Occasionally the Sales and Marketing Associate may be asked to travel (usually within the Atlantic Region).  This position reports directly to Oberland’s CEO Greg.  Oberland is currently located at 10 Ragged Lake Blvd with a new expansion facility opening on the adjacent Grassy Lake Dr in January 2023.
