DIG is looking for a dynamic Strategic Operations Manager to join our growing Financial Planning & Business Analytics team, reporting into the Chief of Staff to the CFO. This role will be exposed to many moving parts of our restaurant group and will be a critical, strategic thought partner, working across the organization to drive value.

  • Experience thriving when under pressure and multi-tasking.
  • An entrepreneurial spirit - you don’t mind rolling up your sleeves and getting scrappy.
  • An interest in the restaurant industry.

You will: 

  • Identify, prioritize, structure, and solve an array of other complex business problems, using analytics and business judgment.
  • Proactively identify and implement cross-departmental solutions to help scale our business.
  • Work closely with internal teams to continuously improve processes using qualitative and quantitative data.
  • Provide deep analytic support and business context to identify and drive critical growth initiatives.
  • Partner with functions including finance, tech, operations, supply chain, real estate, and marketing to support our growth as we expand into new markets and business lines.
  • Translate strategy into specific business initiatives and develop tools to measure and evaluate them.

  • Phone reimbursement
  • Equinox gym membership, based on eligibility
  • Commuter benefits

The company is built on a culture of driven curiosity and ambitious innovation, finding and implementing new solutions to offering a simple, healthy, affordable meal. Our mission is to build a better food system (one vegetable at a time) that offers a better deal to customers, cooks, and farmers alike.

The next few years will be a period of expansion, as we open in new cities and use the platform we’ve built for a better conversation around sourcing, cooking, and the business of food. 

And did we mention free DIG for all employees? We strongly recommend the sweet potatoes.

DIG believes in the power of a shared table to bring people together as we are committed to building a culturally inclusive team. Diverse candidates encouraged to apply.
