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:

  • 2 years of experience in Talent Acquisition, including experience with non-exempt roles
  • In-depth knowledge of full-cycle recruiting and employer branding techniques
  • Familiarity with a variety of different interview processes and styles
  • Knowledge of California hiring practices is ideal
  • Hands on experience with posting jobs on social media and job boards
  • Experience with HRIS, ATS, Sourcing and Recruitment Marketing tools
  • A sense of ownership and pride in your performance and its impact on the company’s success
  • Experience building and sourcing from a growing and diverse candidate pool


You are:

  • A problem solver. You’re deliberate on how you approach challenges and see them as opportunities to build better.
  • Of high integrity and judgment. You’ll have to exercise good judgment and discretion at all times as it relates to confidential and sensitive information. 
  • Entrepreneurial minded. Building and rebuilding is part of what drives you. You are excited by creating processes and continuously improving them.
  • 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. 
  • Extremely hard working. We are a startup with the mentality that no job is too big or too small for us. You know how to hustle, but more importantly, you know how to hustle smart. 
  • 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 and promote that attitude across Crafty. 
  • Passionate about growth.  We have a bright future ahead – which depends on our team’s spirit, morale, and work ethic.
