We’re seeking a talented, passionate and self-directed Controller to join our team.


Important note: This position is based out of East Fork’s Portland satellite office.

The Controller’s primary role is to provide a steady financial hand for East Fork as it grows. The Controller will develop and maintain a dynamic accounting system, interface with tax professionals, participate in budget planning and ensure compliance in a range of areas. East Fork is effectively a startup, so this position will also support others on the business team, a collaborative group that includes the Sales Manager, CEO, President and Education Manager.

  • Attend events as an East Fork representative

  • Occasionally visit the farm to help out and get your hands dirty


  • Annual salary: $46,500

  • Paid vacation: 4 weeks


  • Schedule: The Controller sets their own schedule, but should average at least 40 hours per week. The business team tends to work M-F.

  • Travel: This position requires a minimal amount of travel. You’ll be provided use of a company vehicle or compensated for miles driven at the standard IRS business rate (currently $0.545 for 2018).

  • All team members are expected to participate in East Fork’s culture of self management, constant improvement, and be flexible to the constant changes of a dynamic business and industry.


If interested in the position, please send an email to info@eastforkcultivars.com with subject line “Controller” that includes your resume, three references and a brief “cover letter” in the body of the email that explains in a few paragraphs why you think you’d be a good fit for the position.

      Question - Construction Services: I'm collecting construction bids for a commercial construction project by the airport, and I was wondering if anyone knows of anyone they'd recommend. (Bonus points for woman or minority owned businesses!) I've been searching woman's trade organizations online, but I can't seem to find just a list of local female contractors. Any tips?
