The Role

The head of operations will have the opportunity to help build a high-profile startup from the ground up. Our team is moving fast and we’re looking for mission-driven talent with a bias for action and a drive to accelerate change. We’d prefer a creative, autonomous, and growth-minded builder that is willing to bring all they've got to disrupt and rebuild the very broken food industry with us. This is an “all hands on deck” lean team, and we’re looking for a hungry and driven individual who is willing to dedicate themselves to our mission, and has the desire to grow into an operations leadership role with us.

Tactically, this role will work directly alongside the COO to build out operations at Sunrise. Initially, this will include supporting category & inventory management, communicating with customers and suppliers, hiring & managing operations staff, and delivering orders on our cargo e-bike. The Operations Manager will be the face of Sunrise to our customers and will play a key role in delivering our mission to build the future of food.

There is equity ownership in Sunrise involved. We strongly prefer a candidate who is passionate about our mission and wants to stick with us for the long-term.
