Sales & Business Development
New York, NY, USA · Miami, FL, USA
Posted on Thursday, May 16, 2024

was founded with the belief that restaurant operators and service providers should have a much better way to operate their businesses. As a first step towards our mission, we have built a SaaS-enabled marketplace that helps fast-growing restaurants manage their 🛠 repairs and maintenance, empowering them to focus on their customers.

Repair and maintenance is the heartbeat of any restaurant's operations, yet the existing management methods are complex, expensive, and time-consuming. With ResQ, restaurants can simply get connected to qualified service providers, submit jobs, track progress, and pay, all in one place.

We are trusted by the world's leading restaurant brands and are venture-backed by top-tier global VCs - and we are just getting 🚀 started!

Stage 1️⃣: Send us your resume and a note about how your story connects to ours. Feel free to focus on what you have learned rather than just a list of responsibilities. Tell us your story! We’ll aim to tell you quickly if it is not the right fit so you are always informed.

Stage 2️⃣: Successful candidates will meet with People and Talent Lead. It will be standardized to keep things fair but also with enough room to show your uniqueness. We’ll communicate the salary range now for full transparency. If you like us and we also think there is a fit, we’ll invite you to the next stage.

Stage 3️⃣: An interview with the hiring manager who will ask you more in depth questions about your experience and skills. Come with questions!

Stage 4️⃣: This round will be a panel style interview where we will have you present a Case Study to our team. We will leave time for feedback, some additional questions from our team (who doesn’t love more questions?!) as well as time for you to ask questions.

Stage 5️⃣: This is the final stage in the process where you will meet our CEO, KJ. This stage will be more of an introductory call and less focused on your in depth skills and knowledge.

We are a mission-driven team and have a big vision to revolutionize the service industry. While on that journey, we recognize that building a startup is very hard. Turning vision into reality in a fast-growing environment takes superhuman efforts and is often one of the most difficult, yet rewarding, things one can do.

We do our best to ensure transparency during all stages of the interview process but we realize it's a lot of information 📚 to take in at once so we wanted to centralize everything to make it easier for you to navigate through. We have created a Talent Notion page which will help you learn more about us during the recruitment process.
