Job Description

Munchery is looking for an Executive Chef passionate about “tech and taste.” We’re using technology to bring together chefs and the ones they serve in an unprecedented way. We believe good food should be convenient, diverse, healthy, and frankly, taste great. We all must eat, and we’re tired of the lack of innovation in food. Join our talented team in building a service that changes the game.
We began our journey in Seattle a few weeks ago, and are looking to expand our culinary team with people who want to join an amazing culinary team. Our menu changes daily, and our cuisine styles cover the map (depending on what the chefs want to create), so the work is never boring.
If you are passionate about food and cooking, we want you to work with us. If you bring to the table strong leadership skills, a good work ethic, and a humble attitude, this is the place for you. Bilingual is always a plus. We run a fast paced kitchen, and we expect everyone to keep up.

Better is…
 Position is Monday – Friday days.
 No front of house stress, because there is no front of house.
 Creative freedom to constantly create tasty new dishes and offerings.
 Only limited by your passion, imagination and ingenuity to bring your ideas to life. No limits on cuisines, themes or styles. Variety is the name of the game.
 Build your brand beyond the kitchen walls. Your face and name on your creations and in front of thousands of people daily.

Even better yet…
 Starting salaries above & beyond market rates.
 100% covered medical, dental & vision benefits.
 PTO and most major holidays off.

Sound a little different than any job you’ve heard about before? That’s because it is. We’re creating better jobs, for the best chefs in town.

Executive Chef Requirements:
 10+ years experience, most recently as Executive Chef or equivalent, running well-established fine dining establishments or high end catering.
 Experience managing multiple locations via a central commissary a plus.
 Experience designing a food service HACCP plan.
 Marketing, press, and PR experience representing the dining establishment a plus.
 Skill and techniques necessary to develop and execute menus across a wide culinary spectrum.
 Dedicated team players with proven ability to lead and educate others.
 Experience in-scale food production preferred, maintaining rigorous high quality and safety standards a must.
 Strong palette and ability to develop food concepts from the ground up.
 Expert in using local ingredients and cooking with the seasons.
 In tune with all the latest food trends.
 Is forever a student of food, always looking to expand knowledge base and skill set. It’s both an art and a science.
 Strong foothold in local food community with close ties to purveyors and artisans a plus.
 Proven expertise in inventory and food cost control.
 Food Safety Manager Certification, or capable of obtaining it prior to starting.
 Experience maintaining a food service HACCP plan.
 Amazing communication skills, both written and verbal.
 Tech savvy is a big plus. We like to solve problems and create opportunities with tech – even in the kitchen.
Responsibilities
 Researching and developing new menu concepts.
 Executing the full-scale production of the Daily Menu.
 Work with the Culinary Manager (CM) to plan weekly and daily menus.
 Work with the marketing and photography team to deliver visual assets, written descriptions, and other marketing assets as needed.
