Job Details

At Rocket Farm Restaurants, the core philosophy that defines our culture is “We serve the person who is serving the guest.” Our culture is not something we act out on the floor of the restaurant. It starts with how we treat and serve one another in the kitchen – with dignity, respect, and care. We believe there should be no difference in how we treat and serve one another in the kitchen and how we treat and serve our guests in the dining room. We hope you agree and will consider joining us!

The Optimist brings a seaside fish camp experience to landlocked Atlantans with high quality, sustainably sourced seafood and beach-food classics that transport you to your favorite seaside haunts.

The Optimist is looking for an energetic and precise Sous Chef!

The Sous Chef will be able to effectively and professionally lead the kitchen in the absence of the Executive Chef. The ideal candidate is a natural leader with the drive and ability to maintain a cohesive team, while efficiently delegating and working calmly under pressure. 3-years of progressive culinary experience preferred, one of which in a Lead Cook or Sous Chef position. Apply today and become part of a dynamic, innovative, and heartfelt group of unique individuals!
