Next Crop Stagiaire (HQ)

New York, United States · The Next Crop

Description

Overview

With Dig Inn's Next Crop Program, you’ll work hands-on with our Support team and will gain valuable insight into the restaurant industry and develop leadership skills. Next Croppers work cross-departmentally within a specific area of focus in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment. You know no task is too small (Next Croppers help order lunch, handle customer service, and keep our office organized) but know that accomplishing these tasks quickly and efficiently leads to more responsibility and new projects. We're looking for go-getters, people as passionate about changing the food system as creating systems and organization–ambitious team players who knows how to get sh*t done. Also, we talk… a lot. Good communication skills are paramount – you’ll need to stay on top of messages, juggle multiple project threads, and close the loop (if you see something, do something.) A love of hospitality, food, and the restaurant industry is a must.


Dig Inn's Next Crop is a paid experience similar to an internship. Next Crop programs are paid hourly and offered summer, spring, and fall on a rolling basis and require a commitment of 25–40 hours per week. We are currently hiring for the summer program, May–August (dates flexible).

We believe our food choices have the power to leave the world a little better than we found it. Our mission is to train the next generation of cooks, chefs, and restaurateurs, and help small and mid-sized farms scale sustainably. From paddock to plate, we’re building community.

SUSTAINABILITY/SUPPLY CHAIN (Location: HQ in Nomad)

We keep our farmers on speed-dial, have excel formulas memorized, and know the difference between a brunoise and a batonnet. Our knack for numbers is rounded out by culinary expertise. Quite literally, we get the farm to the table. We read extensive reports on mindful waste management, work with local partners to achieve zero waste, and geek out over farm visits to learn about diverse farm models.

CULINARY R&D (Location: Food Hub in Hunts Point, Bronx)

We're the people who can taste-testing different food and talk about it for hours. From culinary inspiration to recipe tasting, testing and scaling, you want to be a part of the process from A to Z. Our R&D team works at our Food Hub in the Bronx where the vegetable magic happens.

ACCOUNTING (AKA NUMBERS)

Every department relies on our reports to get a real-time picture of their efforts—think of us as the (delicious!) salad dressing making all the other ingredients taste good. Sure, we do a lot of number crunching—but seeing tangible changes week to week in the restaurants gives our reports a real sense of meaning.
