Job Description

Blöde Kuh is a small artisan and vegan food company looking to hire a dynamic and energetic individual to bring on as an Operations Coordinator.

We’re a very mission-driven company where we focus on doing the right thing and doing it well. We encourage open communication and two-way transparency.  This is not a 9 to 5 job, but we do make it a point to prioritize work-life balance for all our employees. The right applicant for this job will feel comfortable primarily working alone but cooperating with multiple groups within the company. A well-thought-out food philosophy and an understanding of the state of our current food systems will make a candidate stand out.
