Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal
Do you want to join us in building something new at the intersection of food and technology to help advance the restaurant industry and connect everybody with their favorite meals?
Then Kitch might just be the right thing for you!
Kitch is a venture-backed firm that is on a mission to get your favorite restaurant to step into your home, and deliver you a worthy dining experience.
Food delivery is a growing part of our routines. It’s easy, convenient, and there are more and more restaurants available. However, not everything is perfect. Many of our favorite restaurants still don’t make it to our dining tables. And most restaurants haven’t conceived their food to travel across town inside a backpack, on a motorbike.
Kitch is here to fix this. We’re a kitchen. We are not a delivery app, and we are not a restaurant. We’re a kitchen that is distributed all over town and that houses the most exciting restaurants. A kitchen where the most creative chefs will cook new and exclusive dishes, as well as their most popular classics. A kitchen where everything is designed from scratch to order food and eat it at home — from the ingredients to the packaging.
We are a Lisbon-based startup and our team is composed of former executives at major tech, food-delivery, and food & beverage companies and brands internationally, with extensive startup and strategy consulting experience. We are looking to grow and develop by attracting extraordinary people with outstanding talent.
You are passionate about building something from scratch. You are a creative thinker, ready to go beyond the standard solutions and unafraid to explore paths that are not obvious to reach your goals. You are excited about bringing a new concept to an industry that is largely established.
You love food, and you are excited about embracing the challenge of reinventing the kitchen for the modern age, enabling restaurants and customers to benefit from technology and innovation. Bringing a new concept to an industry that is largely established is something you look forward to doing.
Finally, but not least importantly, you have a great attitude and are a team player.
We are looking for a Restaurant Business Development Manager to lead restaurant acquisition efforts and to lead the management of Kitch restaurant community.
Your overarching goal is to build and lead our Restaurant Acquisition and Management efforts. Kitch is about bringing the city’s favorite restaurants and we don’t compromise on who integrates our community. Developing the right relationships with restaurants, and creating the right processes and procedures as Kitch scales, will be core to achieving this goal.
Your first goal is to lead our Restaurant Acquisition. It’s early days at Kitch and we are laying the foundations to bring the favorite restaurants in our cities to Kitch. It will be up to you to develop the relationships with these restaurants and create the right conditions for them to join Kitch.
Your second goal is to lead our Restaurant Management efforts. As we are building our business, we are developing a very close relationship with our community of restaurants. As we scale, we don’t want to lose that proximity. Therefore, creating the right structure to keep working closely with our community of restaurants is a core objective for us.
Your third goal will be to scale our Restaurant Acquisition processes as we scale our business, launching new locations, and opening new cities. We don’t compromise on the restaurants we bring - and that’s we will keep doing even as we scale.
Your final goal will be to help us develop our Restaurant offering. There is a lot that goes into deciding what are the restaurant categories that we bring to a location, and how we select restaurants. We expect your input, working so closely with the industry, and being on top of the latest trends, to be an important component of how we evolve the way we select food categories and restaurants.
