Talking Rain Beverage Company – Why Work For Us?

We were founded in 1987 in Preston, Washington. Since then, we have developed into an industry leader that creates and promotes brands using innovative ingredients and ideas. Our progressive thinking carries over into the Sparkling Ice® refreshingly bold portfolio of Sparkling Waters, Lemonades and Teas.  We continue to devote extensive time into research and development to perfect and expand our brand experience. Bold taste and bold refreshment have made the Sparkling Ice® portfolio one of the fastest-growing non-alcoholic beverages in the country.

In the last five years, our team and volume have grown exponentially.  We have established national distribution partners, are in every national account, and we have taken an advanced approach to marketing.  We truly enjoy developing our brand and our relationships, with customers and consumers.  Our progressive DNA drives us to be an innovative global leader in building beverage brands the people embrace, trust and enjoy

Our Innovative spirit ignites a collaborative work culture that embraces curiosity and forward looking teammates.  This collaboration allows us to continue to build our foundation as a category leader in the industry, with our distributor partners and our retail partners.  The tapestry of creativity, skills, and knowledge that make up our team allows us to create a culture filled with continuous company engagement activities and transparency within our team.

Moreover, Talking Rain has been committed to giving back to our local community and partnering with cause-related organizations since we first opened our doors.  Since then, we have expanded and support hundreds of nonprofits across the Globe. Such organizations consist of Village Health Works, Children’s Miracle Network, and the Susan G. Kommen foundation, to name a few.

We encourage you to research more on Talking Rain and take a peak under the umbrella…


Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provides critical treatments and care for kids in hundreds of communities. Talking Rain is a proud affiliate, donating $50,000 from the sales of Sparkling Ice beverages.


The Talking Rain family is committed to supporting breast cancer research by donating a portion of the proceeds to the funding of breast cancer research, screening and education.


Whether it’s in our own Pacific Northwest backyard, or in communities throughout the United States and all over the world, giving back is a part of Talking Rain’s DNA and a compass that guides the heart of our company.

    I have been working at Talking Rain Beverage Company full-time (Less than a year)


    Flexibility and autonomy to implement change--no saying "the way it's always been done."
    Everyone is really nice and willing to help.
    Fun, positive culture with lots of events.
    Lots of responsibility. May not be for everyone, but I love how much responsibility I've been given and how much of an impact I can make. Daunting at times, but a really great opportunity.
    Really great benefits.


    Some growing pains from the rapid expansion. Always working to hire more employees to account for the increase in workload.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making sure to hire for the culture, not just the role.
