Fresh Truck Market Manager

About Fresh Truck

Fresh Truck is on a mission to radically impact community health in Boston by getting food to those who need it most. We rethought the traditional grocery model and made it mobile by converting school buses into 300 sq. ft. mobile food markets and food education learning spaces that increase access to healthy food and foster health-centered community food culture. We love Boston, we’re obsessed with our mission and we’re committed to meaningful, long-term social impact. We take our work seriously, but at the end of the day we have a great time selling fruits from a bus, so we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

Job description

Our Market Manager is Fresh Truck’s face in the community that keeps us running on time, fully stocked and delighting our customers. You will have the opportunity to shape Fresh Truck’s growth by supporting the innovation of our supply chain, customer experience, and community engagement. This role requires a diverse skill set blending food purveyor, dockworker, truck driver, and customer service representative (and occasional therapist). We’re looking for someone with an unrelenting passion for community building. This job is both physically and intellectually challenging— you’ll be tired but fulfilled at the end of each day.

What you’ll do

  • Drive a full-size, 39ft school bus
  • Support all direct operations for Fresh Truck’s food retail program, including check-out, bagging, restocking, customer service, and minor bus maintenance
  • Communicate with vendors, supply chain partners, community partners, and community residents
  • Work directly with Fresh Truck’s leadership team to design and execute marketing/community engagement initiatives to build brand awareness and drive sales
  • Educate, mentor and support operations interns and volunteers

Who you are

  • You embrace working within diverse community settings and with a strong sense of social justice; being multilingual and/or a Boston native is huge a plus
  • An excellent driver, accustomed to driving in an urban environment; strong preference for individuals with experience driving box trucks and large vehicles
  • Relentless organizer capable of improvising to ensure delivery and fulfillment
  • Grit – you’re willing to get your hands dirty, comfortable with some heavy lifting (50 pounds) and will stop at nothing to make things happen
  • 1-2 years of experience in one or a combination of the following: operations and supply chain management, food retail, and/or food service; experience with an early stage startup is a bonus

What you’ll get

  • $15 hour and $10/ shift in free food; any additional purchases are 50% off
  • The opportunity to shape Fresh Truck’s growth
  • A network of food health advocates and partners
  • Work day in and day out to make Boston a healthier city
