Job Description

Prep Specialist/ Full Time+ $40,000/yr

Amazebowls is a Los Angeles based acai bowl company, but we've always pushed ourselves beyond our bowls. From our famous Nut Butter to vegan caramels to coconut creams, we like to create fun, interesting toppings and add-ins that really let our customers (and us) play with their food. Our commitment to clean ingredients translates to whole flavors that both taste good and make people feel good. Amazebowls believes anything we can make ourselves is better than what we can buy already processed, and it's a lot more fun! As we continue to expand our menu, our growing family could use some Back of House help in our Prep department.

The ideal Prep Specialist candidate is someone who:

  • Loves food! We all love food and the relationship it builds with others
  • Is self-motivated; works well with minimal to no supervision and makes deadlines
  • Is detail-oriented; we always give our best to our customers, and our products and ingredients reflect that
  • Loves to learn new things
  • Has strong verbal communication skills, Spanish speaking a plus!
  • Has a flexible schedule and personal vehicle
  • Is adaptable to change; we're always trying out new recipes or new ways to create things
  • Has prior experience in food, prep, or kitchen spaces. This isn't required, but is definitely a bonus!
  • Is dedicated to maintaining a clean, organized work space
  • Keeps a positive attitude

What to expect:

  • Freezing large amounts of fruit for use in our products
  • Cold-brewing coffees, teas, etc.
  • Producing a variety of nut milks and butters
  • Prepping large volumes ingredients/toppings in a timely manner for location use and use at events
  • An at-times fast paced work environment; we're a rapidly growing company and we don't intend to stop
  • Learning new recipes and replicating them in our Prep Kitchen space
  • Organizing hard goods in our storage spaces, some short travel required
  • Long periods of standing with some repetitive motion in the form of reaching, pulling or bending
  • Friendly, diverse people and delicious food!
