We’re looking for a hard-working, hands-on, people-person type go-getter to join our team on a part-time, occasional basis. Our newest rockstar on staff will be assisting during catered events and covering shifts when needed to hold down the House.
Each member of our team is trained and prepared to do a little bit of everything in the House, juggling a variety of roles and tasks across all of our lines of business. This time around, we are looking for another set of helping hands to cover occasional daytime coworking shifts as well as provide occasional service assistance for nighttime and weekend events. You’ll have a mixed bag of responsibilities during the various kinds of events we host here at the House, which run the gamut from simple meet n’ greet member mixers to catered food and wine private event rentals.
In return, we’re offering a great hourly rate + tips where applicable, experience working in and learning about the aspects of our unique business, and the opportunity for an increased role in the future (if that interests you). Experience in catering and/or hospitality is a plus, but what we need most is a hard-working, proactive, go-getter type with a natural feel for gracious service. This is NOT a desk-based role: you’ll be on your feet, being active and engaging socially with our team, members and guests. We also need someone with flexible availability, as we’ll be asking you to cover shifts on an occasional basis with little notice.
This position will begin with a 30-day training/trial period to make sure it’s a fit on both sides. Compensation will be the same during the training period, and we’ll meet at the end of the 30 days to discuss next steps.
Hours + Compensation
- Hours during training: 2 four-hour daytime shifts per week, with 2-4 night/weekend events per month
- Hours after training: 2-4 daytime shifts and 2-4 night/weekend events per month, but will vary; must be flexible and able to pick up shifts with little notice
- Compensation: $15 per hour + occasional gratuities
- Start Date: early June
The kinds of tasks you’ll be taking on:
- Handling day-to-day activities in the coworking space: assisting members, serving drinks, setting up/breaking down the bar, light cleaning, and managing operations of the House (internet, music, printer, etc.)
- Responding to walk-in inquiries from prospective clients: providing tours, explaining our services, and representing our culture and community
- Setting up, assisting and breaking down for events: moving and storing furniture, checking and restocking bathrooms, inspecting and cleaning up front and back patios, implementing setup lists and floorplans, and resetting everything after the event.
- Catering assistance: light food preparation, plating and styling, serving guests, setting up for events, and cleaning kitchen and service areas afterwards.
- Helping out at the bar, serving drinks, and assisting with random bar tasks: getting ice, restocking and refilling, washing glassware and flatware, cleaning and tidying.
What you get from us:
- Above-market compensation and additional gratuities during catered or bar-open events
- A jack-of-all-trades experience, with the chance to be involved in and learn all aspects of a business in a new + rapidly growing industry
- An opportunity to work with and be around a supportive, successful and creative bunch of folks
- Potential for increased responsibility – we’re always looking for leader types that could help us run this shindig down the road
- Shift drinks, great coffee, and great people! We love our team and our members, and think you will, too.
- A high school diploma and 2+ years work history
- Experience in and a passion for the hospitality industry
- Flexible availability, with a willingness and ability to cover shifts with little notice
- Ability and willingness to take on physical tasks including: frequently moving about the space completing tasks; moving furniture, including larger and heavier items with assistance; cleaning, organizing, and tidying; washing flatware and polishing glassware
- An hospitable “do anything” spirit and a capable, can-do attitude – you must be able to work both collaboratively and independently and jump in without being asked, and enjoy (literally) getting your hands dirty
- Experience, ability and comfort with in-person sales activities, including making first contact with prospective clients in person and representing our services to them
- Excellent communication skills, both spoken and written
- Hands-on cooking, catering or food preparation experience, particularly in a professional environment

- Finally, include your ideal number of hours per week and the days you are available, keeping in mind that what we’re looking for most is flexibility and availability.
