Willie Nelson's pot company, Willie's Reserve, has posted a number of new job opportunities in its Colorado division, including slots for Compliance Office, Bookkeeper, Production Manager, Sales Director and Extractor.

Before you pack up your beat-up acoustic and tie-dye tapestries, though, you should know these are real jobs that require some actual background experience. If you want to work for the company that plans to offer Coloradans a wide range of marijuana products grown by independent farmers starting this summer, you'll need to have some serious credentials.

From Snoop Dogg to Willie Nelson, Pot Industry Tries to Build Brands

For instance, the Director of Extraction/Lead Extractor position seeks someone who will be responsible for the company’s "overall extraction setup, staffing, equipment purchasing, processing protocols, strategy, and day to day production while supervising a team of extraction technicians." Qualified candidates will need to have "strong interpersonal and communication skills," be "highly motivated [and] detail oriented," be able to implement a consistent production program and have two-plus years of experience in the cannabis and/or commercial laboratory industries. A degree in chemistry/biochemistry/engineering and mechanics is preferred.

 

 

Bragging rights might be enough, but from the looks of it the pay isn't bad, either. The Production Manager gig pays $65,000 plus performance based incentives.
