Kitchen Manager

Pok Pok Restaurants seeks dedicated and driven restaurant professionals to lead our Back-of-House.

Who you are:
You're a leader! You know the best way to make a difference is to get involved. You are (or wish to become) a student of the food and food culture of Southeast Asia. You positively influence a team, nurture their curiosity and build enthusiasm around quality work. Your standards are high, and you enjoy challenging your team to rise above what they thought was possible.

You'll achieve our mission by:
° Learning all recipes, techniques and procedures in Pok Pok repertoire and being prepared to step in when a need arises. Your curiosity for the food and food culture of Thailand and Southeast Asia will only increase.
° Meeting Pok Pok's exacting standards in regards to cleanliness and maintenance of all areas, equipment and facilities. You know what needs to be fixed before it's broken.
° Studying weekly financial analytics for areas of opportunity. Crafting employee schedules to meet labor targets. You may or may not be a wiz on the financials, but if you are ready to learn we will teach you.
° Maintaining clear and professional relationships with all Pok Pok's constituents: vendors, service providers, and other industry professionals and fostering an atmosphere of trust and responsiveness. Coming into something new, you understand the importance of a humble approach. Building these relationships will take time, effort, and patience.
° Honing and demonstrating strong analytical skills: setting priorities, proactively addressing problems, adapting. You remain focused and composed in the eye of the storm but know when to ask for help.
° Relentlessly upholding the quality of all food. Tasting everything always! You understand that above all else, the food has to be right! This is your mission every day.

What we're about:
° Pok Pok strives to create a strong sense of place through mindful reproduction of the food and food culture of Thailand and Southeast Asia. 
° Pok Pok's culture embraces 'we' in language and spirit. Our managers work alongside our staff and show great pride in our culture of cooperation among the FOH and BOH.
° Managers are backed by our operations team and offered outlets for education and growth in many areas of restaurant management from financials, to human resources and leadership, to facilities maintenance. 
° Pok Pok pays its team members competitively. Health, vision, and dental are a starting point for all salaried exempt employees. Depending on the position, we also incorporate paid time off, vacation, dining stipends and bonus options.
