ROLE: Commissary & Delivery Operator


TYPE: Part-time, 25 - 30 hours/week min, overnight shift


Truebird is a seed stage start-up that sits at the intersection of food & beverage, automation, and real estate, currently headquartered in Brooklyn.

Our starting mission is to give people an amazing and affordable cup of coffee, wherever they are. Our first step on this journey is to introduce automated Micro-Cafes that serve incredible espresso drinks with a pretty magical experience.

Working at Truebird provides a truly special opportunity to grow a company from the ground up, working alongside a deeply experienced, mature team.


The Commissary & Delivery Operator replenishes and maintains our micro-cafes and related equipment during evening / overnight hours. The Commissary & Delivery Operator will drive a company vehicle along an established route of Micro-cafes for nightly servicing; they are the face of the company and must project a professional and positive image of the company at all times while maintaining excellent client and customer relationships.

This position will also be responsible for the operations at the commissary, which is our back-of house kitchen. You will be responsible for adhering to food safety procedures and guidelines, ensuring that food is responsibly prepared and stored for the deployment to the micro-cafes, and cleaning components of the Micro-cafe once they are returned to the commissary. This role requires attention to detail and the ability to work on repetitive tasks with little supervision. Beyond doing basic food preparation, you will be receiving & stocking items, and cleaning & sanitizing food contact parts for daily operation.
