The role includes regular problem solving, a high level of productivity and output, extreme attention to detail, hyper organization and cleanliness, and a drive for excellence.

We source exceptional products from local farmers and producers; as such, an obsession with quality and a deep respect for seasonal produce are requisites. 

What We Offer: 

Competitive compensation, including health benefits. A work environment based on the non-negotiable core values of nourishment, respect, equality, sustainability, positivity and professionalism. Management who cares deeply about your well being, satisfaction and success. Opportunities for long-term growth and evolution. 

Primary Responsibilities: 

  • Take initiative, working as a team leader to foster a respectful and nurturing workplace.
  • Work with Chef and Sous Chef to ensure all food preparation and execution is done consistently and efficiently, upholding company-wide standards and policies and minimizing labor cost.
  • Demonstrate excellent line work ethic, knife skills, cleanliness, and a professional attitude. 
  • Exhibit stellar organizational habits pertaining to all areas of the kitchen and storage.
  • Demonstrate the ability to help lead a team through the tumult of varied services.
  • Assist in ordering, receiving, storage, sanitation and consistent execution of food at the highest possible level of quality.
  • Assist in daily and monthly inventory of all food products work to minimize waste.
  • Implement and communicate standards of operations and service. 
  • Enforce the proper and thorough maintenance of equipment and facility on an ongoing basis.
  • Hold the team to the highest standards pertaining to sanitary practices for food handling, general cleanliness of kitchen areas, and compliance with operational standards.
  • Maintain an unquenchable thirst for knowledge regarding farmer’s market produce, vendors, and fresh seasonal cooking!
  • Work with chef and lead cooks to inspire and create dishes for the menu as well as food/products/offerings for the market.
  • Do everything within your ability to help Botanica thrive, excel and grow!
