  • We value the strength in teamwork, and strongly believe that it’s the key to Crisp’s success. By bringing together bright, motivated creators, wherever they live and work, we are leveraging humanity’s diversity of experience and background in order to understand the challenges facing our food supply, and solve them together. Come join us, and help build the type of business you’d like to be a part of.
  • We are a socially conscious, distributed team. We give you the opportunity to solve challenges in the global food industry while living where you’re most comfortable and working in areas where you can help foster and grow the community that you are a part of.
  • We believe in transparency, diversity, merit and fostering a culture of empowerment, personal impact and career growth. As our VP of People, you will build out Crisp’s People Operations function by creating and implementing policies, procedures, and tools to support Crisp’s employees and managers. Overseeing human resources and recruiting, you will lead by experience and drive proactive initiatives that keep Crisp ahead of our future needs and continue to make us the best place to work. This is a hands-on role where you will be able to implement and leverage all the best practices you’ve learned at prior companies.

This is an evolving role with ample opportunity for growth that will report to the SVP of Finance. Whether you are coming from a startup or corporate background, we are looking for a candidate who appreciates the significant impact to be made in smaller organizations, and relishes the opportunity to shape their own role and the future of the company.

  • Customer focused. Our customers are at the forefront of your day. You prioritize our customers’ voices to ensure their needs are met.
  • Ambitious, curious, and resourceful. You are innately curious, and you aren’t afraid to work hard. You are self driven, you take direction well but are able to be creative to find results on your own when asked. You are driven to succeed because your hard work and results make you proud.

  • Work smarter and harder. You often identify a problem, create a solution and bring it to a state of completion – with others, or even on your own. You find ways of eliminating or automating stuff that is uninteresting or wasteful.
