Job Description:

Field Sales Manager - Chicago, Illinois

Dreaming big is in our DNA. Forging our own path and creating meaningful experiences is what inspires us. We are a female-owned and led company, empowered to make our own rules to democratize the wine industry. We are looking for boundary pushers that are not afraid to kick down doors and who are resourceful, ambitious, and resilient. We are in growth mode and looking for strategic talent who is looking to amplify their career growth by leading & developing, and training with cross-functional experiences.


Founded in 2015 by Marian Leitner-Waldman and her husband, David, Archer Roose is dedicated to producing affordable luxury wines with minimal intervention. How? Marian and David created the concept of a traveling vineyard.

Instead of building a winery and committing to a specific geography and varietal, they wanted to offer wines from the most-renowned regions around the world. So, they fostered personal relationships with small, adventurous winemakers who preserve terroir, and approach viticulture with craftsmanship and deep respect for the environment. Through these close partnerships, we’re able to produce unique, natural wines within 20 miles of their harvest location and bring them to you.

We continue the tradition of our namesake’s intrepid spirit: scouring the globe for sustainable, luxury libations. Journey with us by experiencing our collection of consciously crafted, worldly wines.
