Highly successful and expanding Texas-based trading company is seeking to expand their team of Ingredients Traders to broaden their footprint in the US market. This is a great opportunity for a true self-starter who can thrive on their own and does not need or want to be micro-managed.
You will find an exceptional career and financial opportunity for a driven and self-motivated trader who has at least 3-5 years of ingredients trading or logistics experience and has a good grasp on what they are doing. This company needs someone who has dealt in the ingredients industry, has some customer leads, enjoys the challenge of logistics, and can "swing the hammer" and get things done.
Not only does company leadership not micro-manage, they do not want to micro-manage. They want people who will come in and do their jobs, and if it is warranted that you get in your pickup or on an airplane to go see a customer, you go do it. They live by the mantra, "If you bring value and take care of your customers, they will take care of you."
The ideal personality for this position is someone who would love to run their own company but does not want the headaches; instead, you can come in and run your own business within their business.
A Bachelor’s degree in Ag Economics, Ag Business, Finance or a related area is an asset, but more than the right degree or personality type, what really matters is finding the right person who has their head and heart wrapped around the ingredients trading business. Experience with an ingredients trading company or similar experience in a trading and / or logistics position will be valuable.
We are seeking good ingredient trading candidates who have a competitive nature and a vast knowledge of your own current business. A solid knowledge of the organics or non-GMO pipeline or an ingredients trading background in the animal feed business (animal by-products / fats and oils) would be some examples of the wide variety of backgrounds that will be seriously considered from any qualified and motivated candidate. This is NOT a position for traders who have worked exclusively with high volume grains, energy, stocks, derivatives or other non-ingredient type products.
This company specializes in trading primarily animal and vegetable by-products but has a lot of room to expand. They are very much open to expanding into new domestic trading markets and geographies depending upon the background and knowledge of the traders they bring onto the team.
You will be a part of a team environment where everyone is responsible for their own desk and business within the business, but you will find that everyone also cooperates and supports each other by working together as a team to get things done when needed.
They take ownership of all products they trade and move them primarily by truck, although a candidate with a good rail background would be an asset. They do not currently work in nor do they desire to enter the export market outside of North America.
This company offers a very lucrative, well-defined financial opportunity, and there is nothing ambiguous about it. You will know exactly how you will be compensated. When you put a trade together, you will know what you are going to make.
They have a guaranteed compensation plan that helps their traders work into a very transparent and financially rewarding sliding scale commission structure based off of the gross profit of the trades you will make. They do not want people who get comfortable but need performers who will perform, are driven to win, and who appreciate being very well compensated for their successful efforts. They expect a lot but will reward you with one of the best compensation and benefits plans in the industry.
You will have a solid support staff who will assist you with the business you generate. They consistently promote an atmosphere of accountability, competition, transparency, and camaraderie within their team as each person is accountable for A/R and the bottom line of their own business.
Located in the rural outskirts of one of Texas' most desirable cities, this opportunity will allow you to live in the heart of the city, a family-friendly suburb, a rural community, or in a secluded home in the country. You will have nearby access to some of best educational, entertainment, and recreational opportunities anywhere in the nation.
Compensation will start out as a guaranteed salary until you have enough business to live on commissions. You will be presented an opportunity to earn over time a mid-six to seven figure income along with a benefits package that is second to none.
