Department: Dining Alliance

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

Company Overview:

With over 20,000 locations and over $3 billion in buying power, Dining Alliance helps independent restaurants stay competitive by combining their purchasing power in order to lower their costs and increase quality.  Dining Alliance also is an incubator of several brands and companies that are disrupting and revolutionizing the foodservice industry through technology, innovation and customization.

Dining Alliance is the nation's largest purchasing organization for independent restaurants. Our company has experienced explosive growth in the last few years and our CEO won Boston Business Journal's 40-Under-40 Award.

Company & Team Culture:

We are looking for a positive, enthusiastic and creative team member to join our marketing team of 4 people. We support 8+ companies within our family of owned brands. Our priorities are often shifting quickly as we operate similar to a Marketing Agency serving our various stakeholders.  The person that takes this job will need to pride themselves on being a team player and being able to jump in and figure out any task they are given. At any given moment the 4 members of our department are likely focused on 7 separate projects.  We work in a fairly loose structure of independence and collaboration.  We are looking for candidates who like to take a project and run with creativity and confidence.  If you prefer to operate with lots of oversight, tight and consistent objectives, clear goals and pre-determined expectations of results, you may find this job hectic, stressful and unfulfilling.  If you love working with a wide set of challenges, managing multiple priorities and capitalizing on opportunities to contribute your own unique designs and ideas -- Dining Alliance is the perfect place for you!
