    Enjoy working in the food industry but tired of working in restaurants?
    Come work at Ritrovo!

    We are an award-winning importer and wholesaler of high-end Italian specialty food. We ship all over the US and to Canada.

    We are looking for either two part-time people, or one full-time person, to add to our small team to work in one or both of the following positions.

    Front Office:

    The front office is where the phones are answered, orders are written, and the daily warehouse flow is scheduled. We communicate with our distributors, wholesalers, and brokers via phone, email, and even Fax! There are several clerical tasks associated with this position, including maintaining inventory information for the online sales platform FAIRE, creating sales reports, creating sales materials, assisting in planning sales events, and so on. The front office also coordinates and staffs trade shows and demos (when conditions allow). This job requires polite customer service skills, accurate English language communication skills, attention to detail, and good organizational skills. Knowledge of QuickBooks, Excel, Google Drive, Dropbox, and Outlook a plus.


    The warehouse is where inbound containers are received, bailed, and product is organized. Orders are then pulled, packed, and shipped out. We pack boxes to ship via UPS, and we stack and wrap pallets to ship LTL. This job requires attention to detail and a strong safety mindset. You must also be able to lift 30 lbs. regularly, and up to 80 lbs. occasionally. The warehouse crew is on their feet most of the day on a concrete floor. Knowledge of shipping software and QuickBooks is a plus. Forklift skills would also be helpful.

    Some Benefits of Working at Ritrovo:

    Health Insurance: Employees working at least 26 hours per week qualify for Medical, Dental, and Vision coverage after 60 days. The employee contribution is $50 a month.

    Predictable hours: We operate 9-5, Monday through Friday. The part-time front office job would be roughly 1-5, M-F. The part-time warehouse job could be adjusted to either mornings or specific days of the week. If one person wanted to do both, they would likely be in the warehouse for the first half of the day, and then catching the phones and emails and doing front office stuff for the second half of the day.

    Sampling Allowance: We ask that employees take our products home to test in their own kitchens. This improves employee product knowledge.

    Semi-regular happy hour at the end of the day on Friday.

    Convenient location: We are located near the 1st Avenue S bridge. There is a bus stop about ½ mile away. DO NOT APPLY IN PERSON!


    Wages vary depending on experience, combination of positions, and whether you choose to participate in the health insurance plan. Starting hourly wage range is $17.25 – 18.50 with health insurance. Without health insurance, the current Seattle minimum wage applies (currently $19.97/hour).

    If this sounds like the job—or combination of jobs–for you, please email an introductory letter with a resume attached to:



    Front office position is filled.

    Warehouse position is now part-time/full-time. Please see new job posting 3/1/2024.
