Company Description

Curds & Co. is on a mission to bring great cheese and happiness to the people.

We€™re a new neighborhood cut-to-order cheese store in Brookline Village and we are going to conquer this ambitious mission day-after-day by building a 21st Century cheese store. We are layering all the important parts of sourcing, buying, and selling cheese in a mom-and-pop-sized shop with a delicious and rigorous core of startup strategies, know-how, and data. We will sell cut-to-order cheese and pairings, teach classes, host events, sell wholesale to the local restaurants, and offer a cheese subscription service.

Job Description

You might be who we€™re looking for if:

  • You are a senior cheesemonger looking for a great place to put your roots down and build something big and meaningful.
  • You are a seasoned junior cheesemonger who is looking to level-up and fully commit to the world of stinky, gooey, brothy, grassy, lactic cheese with a load of ideas you€™ve been dreaming up but until now have had no say in implementing them.
  • You are a cheesemonger who always wanted to open their own store but just didn€™t have the means to do it alone.

Why you€™d want to work here:

  1. You think traditional cheese stores can be intimidating and you want to help run the most amazing and least intimidating cheese store that ever was.
  2. You want to wake up every morning excited to check on your cheeses and share them with your really smart and curious local clientele.
  3. You€™ve always wanted to build your own optimal cheese inventory and show off your seasonal favorites.
  4. You can€™t think of anything more delicious than finding unusual, extraordinary food pairings for cheese.
  5. You like working outside-the-box if it makes work easier, people happier, and you heart gladder.
  6. You believe in working smarter and not harder.
  7. You love the idea of educating the customer through day-to-day interactions, our own videos, signage, and classes.
  8. You like to attend events like ACS, the Fancy Food Show, and would love to compete in Cheesemonger Invitational, and take the CCP test one day.
  9. You are stoked that you get to help develop our cool "cheese & pairing" subscription service, Curdbox.
  10. You want to make big cheesy ideas happen.
