 Foodies are our jam!

Do you stay on top of current food trends and new restaurant openings for fun? Do you have a passion for people and community? Does your dream job include being paid to eat out and call it “research”?

We are hiring an Operations Assistant / Culinary Guide in San Francisco. As a guide you will work between 4-16 hours a week plus 3-5 hours per week as an operations assistant. This will require a mix of remote and on the ground work. We do not have set work hours, but the position will require schedule flexibility and quick response times.

As a culinary guide you will host our culinary experiences by rolling up your sleeves and delving into hospitality while nerding out with guests about incredible food and drink. As a culinary host, people are drawn to your outgoing and positive attitude. You’re usually the one to host cocktail parties, walking around offering water and making sure guests have had enough to eat. You have an eye for detail and reading people - are they having a great time? Do they have a napkin? What can you do to make their experience awesome?

Not only do you drool over avocado toast, but you are organized and detail oriented. For reminders you trust your handy and helpful friend Slackbot, you nerd out when new features are released in Asana, and you love checking off tasks from your to do list. Asking questions and collecting resources is innate to you since you know it will get you closer to a solution. Flexibility, reacting quickly, and thinking on your feet is a skill you feel you can show off to others. You are a problem solver and love puzzles so building a project timeline and hitting deadlines is satisfying to you.

This is a fast paced, start-up environment that is growing quickly. Thinking on your feet and creatively, while problem solving with a growth mentality is crucial. We are a fast growing business, so there is growth potential for the right candidate.
