Sales Development Representative

Napa, California

Who we are:

Nakedwines.com is creating a community of wine drinkers and winemakers who are changing the wine world for the better. Our customers support talented, independent winemakers across the USA and the world, in return for access to exclusive hand-crafted wines at amazing prices. Because we fund winemakers upfront, Nakedwines.com can remove a huge chunk of the costs that would usually be passed back to the customer.

Nakedwines.com started in the UK in 2008 and by 2012 Naked Wines launched in the US and later in Australia. The US business recently celebrated our 6th anniversary and we are delivering profits along with significant growth. We have a marketing, operations, finance and customer service team approaching 100 people based in Napa, and a production site in Kenwood.

Come be a part of a culture of fun, hard-working people in a laid-back environment where employees come to work in flip flops and jeans. All of our staff members are very friendly and helpful, so before long you will be coming to work with your friends.
