Super Body Fuel is a small, self-funded food manufacturing startup in San Francisco’s industrial Dogpatch neighborhood. We make it easy for people to take control of their health and achieve their ideal diet, regardless of time, money, or dietary restrictions. That is, we make nutritionally complete, powdered meals available in diet plans ranging from ketogenic to high-protein. Our products are engineered for optimal nutrition and the widest possible accessibility. That means they are not only affordable and tasty, but also vegan, hypoallergenic, and free of artificial sweeteners and added sugar.
We’ve been growing organically for the past few years, without the aid of an advertising budget or venture capital (though we did get some nice coverage in The New York Times and Forbes!). Now we’re looking for a Production Assistant to help us take the next step in scaling our business and bringing optimal nutrition to the world.
As a production assistant, you’ll be responsible for turning ingredients into finished products. This includes measuring and mixing ingredients, packaging products, and keeping batch records, as well as cleaning and maintaining the manufacturing facility and equipment. Your focus is on meeting quality standards, following safety procedures, and producing quickly and consistently enough that our customers never have to wait for an order. You’ll work alongside one other production assistant, as well as the warehouse manager, who is responsible for supplying you with ingredients, and the shipping manager, who is responsible for shipping out products to customers.
In this role, you’ll be working part-time or full-time at $16-18/hour at our Dogpatch facility. Opportunities for more hours, more pay, and advancement to management or marketing roles may become available as our company grows.
You like working with your hands and easily slip into a meditative flow state while doing repetitive tasks. You have an eye for detail and notice when an ingredient measurement is off or a bin has not been thoroughly washed. More importantly, you care about quality and take the time to correct a problem even when it’s not convenient. You are always eager to help out your team and to be the kind of person they look forward to working with each day. You have no problem remembering all of our operating procedures or asking questions when you aren’t sure what to do. And at the end of the day, you feel genuine satisfaction looking over a shelf full of finished product and a spotless workspace with everything in its place.
Previous kitchen experience is a plus. Good writing skills are a must for future advancement opportunities.
Super Body Fuel is growing and we are looking for employees who want to grow with us and make a difference in the world. If you are interested, please send us your resume along with a few sentences telling us about the food that you eat (or don’t eat, if that’s more interesting!). We like people who really care about what they do, so tell us what inspires you to join our team.
