A major part of our business heavily depends on our skilled employees in the field, our “Chefs On Road” (CORs), who bring our operations to life by driving, preparing, and serving our customers with an exceptional hospitality experience. Our business is unique, and so are the people that help make this come to reality. We want to attract and develop a world-class team of CORs who are motivated and trained to carry out the company’s mission. As such, we have created a new job profile that is unique to the market but consists of bringing together general management and best practices in organizational development with a 360 focus on the COR community.

You will also develop and implement talent management strategies in partnership with the People (HR) team to ensure CORs are having the best possible employee experience. You will help scale this program as we tap into new markets across the country and ensure that we are building an organization that thrives and grows through different attraction, retention, and development programs that you’ll develop. This is an opportunity to truly create a new labor profile as well as directly shape the culture at a high-growth startup.
