Who we are: 

Crafty’s mission is to help companies craft better workplaces by providing the services and technology to deliver a modern, comprehensive food & beverage program for their employees, no matter where they work.  After operating with a vertically integrated supply chain (i.e., directly fulfilling orders from Crafty-operated distribution centers) in Chicago and the Bay Area, our team launched a third party fulfillment model that has rapidly scaled our coverage into over 25 markets globally, in just a year’s time.

At Crafty, we have a diverse, high-powered team, comprised of folks in technology, supply chain operations, field operations, sales, account management, and more. Our workplace is dynamic, fast-paced, and just plain fun; we pride ourselves in having an amazing mix of humans who make up our team!

Who we are looking for:

Your experience (preferences, not requirements):

  • 4+ years in a Client Service Desk role with 2+ years leading a team
  • Experience effectively communicating cross-functionally
  • Food & Beverage experience (nice to have)

Your proficiencies:

  • Customer Relationship Management platform (HubSpot, Zoho, SFDC, etc) super-user
  • Ticketing system (HubSpot, Zendesk, etc.) super-user
  • Google Suite

You are:

  • A client obsessed individual with a commitment to having a client-first approach. The client is at the center of everything you do and you are not satisfied unless the client is satisfied.
  • A strong leader with the ability to oversee all aspects of a complex and evolving function.
  • Team oriented and a coach at heart; passionate about the development and success of your team.
  • Self-starter who is extremely results and detail-oriented.  Extremely hard working.  We are a startup with the mentality that no job is too big or too small for us.  You are resourceful and hustle because that’s just how you work.
  • Calm and collected in the line of fire. On a day where everything that could go wrong has gone wrong, you find a way to stay positive.
  • Passionate about growth.  We have a bright future ahead, which depends on our team’s spirit, morale, and work ethic.
  • Extraordinarily organized. Detail-orientation is an absolute must. You have tried-and-true methods in your arsenal for staying organized and on top of it all. 
  • Quick learner. You can pick up anything with minimal interaction or teaching and can teach the next person just as well as you learned it. 
  • Adaptable. As the circumstances change, you change your focus with it.

Must have received or be willing to receive the COVID-19 vaccination by date of hire to be considered. Proof of vaccination required.

You are considered fully vaccinated:

What we offer:

Our people mean everything to us. When you join Crafty, you’re joining a team of passionate, smart hooligans who work incredibly hard and know how to get things done. Building the structure to support our team as it continues to grow will have a tremendous impact in enabling our growth today and shaping the company that we become. 

We are proud to offer a compensation package that includes an option to join our Crafty healthcare plan to cover health, dental, and vision plans, 401k, paid time off, equipment certification courses, and parental leave.
