Who is REKKI?

REKKI is an app designed by chefs for chefs to make ordering between restaurants and suppliers easier, more efficient and more accountable. We see it as our duty to reimagine the supply chain for the food industry. We believe independent restaurants are fundamental to society - they provide a space to connect and actually talk to each other - and we work to make them sustainable businesses. 

We are obsessed with the people who work to feed us. As a team, we spend a lot of time with people in the food industry, eating their food and listening to their stories. We love the grit and determination, the sweat, the wild stories, and the banter they have to share. These people work tirelessly so that others can indulge in experiences and expand their horizons. We build REKKI for them

We have proven international success in 6 countries, and that was just the start: We are now ramping up for further expansion. 

 

What will you be doing?

As a Business Development Manager at REKKI you will be at the forefront of our global expansion, ensuring the app is adopted by restaurants rapidly. You will be responsible for engaging with world class chefs and hospitality professionals, demonstrating the app and wowing them with your knowledge and ability to relate to the issues in the hospitality world that REKKI can help solve. 

This exciting role involves wearing many different hats and working dynamically. Top performers will be given the opportunity to grow and flourish into more senior roles, spearheading launches in new territories or managing teams.

 

What you'll need:

To succeed in this role, we are looking for candidates who:

  • Have a huge drive for success. We focus on numbers and believe in aiming for the stars. You have a history in over-performing and are considered best in class. 

  • Exude passion. You are infatuated with the restaurant industry and obsessed  with improving the lives of the people that work in it. 

  • Crave a challenge. You like pushing boundaries and going the extra mile. You are ambitious and highly motivated. 

  • Highly confident. You are comfortable networking with different types of people and finding ways to collaborate with them to help launch and grow REKKI. 

  • Consistently take initiative. You are confident in working with limited resources under tight deadlines, and not afraid of going into the field on the ground level. Constantly changing environments do not phase you. 

  • Have an international mindset. You enjoy travelling for periods of time and feel comfortable embedding yourself in a new city and culture. You speak English fluently but additional languages are a plus.

 

What we offer you:

  • Opportunity to revolutionize the supplier <> buyer relationship in the hospitality industry. 

  • A position that offers a variety of career and resume building experiences.

  • Opportunity to travel to some of North America and Europe’s best cities.

  • Exposure to a team of smart, passionate  people at one of the most exciting and best-funded early stage global startups
