  • Chef

    culinary grad loves food well-traveled Read More

    We’re looking for a chef who can develop recipes, train people, and implement new dishes across all our restaurants. You’ll be working with all of our brands and will have plenty of autonomy to innovate and experiment with new food. But it’s not a completely artistic endeavor: you’ll need to approach cooking with a solid understanding of both the science of cooking and what it takes to develop food in the context of a business.

    Since we’re a medium-sized restaurant company, recipe development will require some operational knowledge because each recipe will need to be rolled out to several branches. You need to be organized and systematic with your approach to cooking.

    Tasks & Responsibilities:

    • Develop new recipes.
    • Improve upon existing recipes.
    • Scale recipes to different batch sizes.
    • Train kitchen staff on technique and procedure.
    • Document procedures.
    • Improve kitchen efficiency.

    Work Qualifications:

    • Culinary graduate, preferable Enderun or a foreign school.
    • Has traveled to at least 3 different countries; understand different cuisines very well.
    • Appreciates a diverse variety of food. Loves fast casual food as opposed to fine dining.
    • Appreciates Asian cooking techniques as much as classic French-style training.
    • Up-to-date with current trends in food.
    • Appreciates experimentation.
    • Manages time very well.
    • Particular attention to plating and presentation.
    • Obsessed with getting food out hot and fresh.
    • Cannot stand mediocrity in all aspects of cooking.
    • Works very well with a team.
    • Insatiable curiosity and lifelong learning.

    Perks & Benefits

    • Work from home or anywhere you want.
    • Plenty of autonomy and freedom to do things your way.
    • No time tracking. (We care about your output, not how you spend your time.)
    • Unlimited vacations.
    • Competitive pay.
    • Plenty of food. (This gets old really fast, though.)
    • Work with a really young, dependable, and supportive team.

    How to Apply:

    Send us three things:

    • Your CV.
    • A short “About Me” essay in 300 words or less explaining your background and why you’d be a great fit for this job.
    • Your work, such as photos of food you’ve made yourself or recipes you’ve developed before.

    Send all the details over to hello@eatlowbrow.com. There is only one opening, so you’ll need to act quickly.

    If we like what we see, we’ll respond within 2 days to set an interview with you.

    In Lowbrow, we look after our people. In fact, we plan out the entire careers of our team together with the growth of our company so we take hiring very seriously. The catch: we set the bar really high. If you decide to apply, be prepared for a serious challenge, but also expect a terrific, supportive team who’ll help you succeed no matter what.

  • Business Development Officer

    peoplepeoplepeople Read More

    Just a quick note: experience is not necessary! We’re more concerned with talent, learning speed, culture fit, and character. If what you read sounds like something you’d be good at, but you’re anxious about having no experience, just go ahead and try.

    We’re looking for someone who wants to build great relationships with our investors and external partners. Our current team is mostly made up of heads-down, awkward people so we need someone who can help us go out there and do the selling and people stuff for us.

    Tasks & Responsibilities

    • Manage relationships with investors.
    • Seek out potential new investors and strategic partners who can help grow the business.
    • Nurture relationships with the media and influencers.
    • Negotiate and structure deals for the company as we grow.
    • Assist in the construction of new restaurants.

    Qualifications

    • Loves meeting people.
    • Loves presenting.
    • Enjoys negotiating and deal-making.
    • Has the rare ability to leave people feeling positive despite possibly tense or stressful discussions.
    • Doesn’t mind the traffic and can tolerate moving around the city.
    • Possesses a sharp business sense.
    • Can answer difficult questions with grace.
    • Genuinely believes in what Lowbrow is doing and can sell our company to others with 100% authenticity.
    • Enjoys the whole culture of food and restaurants; very in touch with the local and global food scene.
    • Relatively good with numbers.
    • Has deep insight and critical thinking to respond to difficult questions.
    • Self-aware.
    • Knows strengths and shortcomings.
    • Knows how to sell not by being loud and domineering, but by being thoughtful, empathic, and likable.
    • Does not get easily bullied or intimidated by different types of people of varying degrees of authority.
    • Comfortable with saying “no” without coming off as an asshole.

    Perks & Benefits

    • Work from anywhere you want. (For this role, it will depend on where your meetings will be.)
    • Plenty of autonomy and freedom to do things your way without a micro-manager looking over your shoulder.
    • No time-tracking. (We care about the value you’re bringing to the company, not how you spend your time.)
    • Unlimited vacations and leaves! (For real and no guilt-tripping.)
    • Plenty of food. (This gets old really fast, though.)
    • Free books for learning. (Just make a request and we’ll buy it for you.)
    • Work with a really young, dependable, and supportive team.
    • Work is never boring.

    Expectations

    • Our culture values trust and freedom so our policies and rules are extremely loose compared to most companies. This also means that conversely, our standards are very high.
    • We will give you the space to perform, but you’ll have to make use of that space. Of course you’ll get plenty of help along the way and we’ll train you as best as we can. You won’t be alone on this journey.
    • We care about preserving a culture of high-performing, kind, dependable, and trustworthy people. As soon as we see individuals who don’t fit the mold, we part ways as fast as possible. We don’t wait for toxic people to ruin our culture. We have zero office politics.
    • We prefer hiring young people. The vast majority of our hires are people 25 years old and below. We do this because we don’t want to hire people with bad habits from bureaucratic companies and we want to learn from you (because we’re not getting any younger.)
    • We generally give new people 3 months as a trial period to test for fit. More than half of new hires do not last beyond 3 months because we want to keep our standards high. However, for those who did get through, the overwhelming majority don’t leave.
    • Pay range for this position is from 20k–30k monthly. It’s a range because your expectations will depend on what you ask for. The lower your ask, the more room you have for error. (The reverse is also true.) If you’re a top performer with a great track record, we can also offer more than that if you make a strong case for yourself.

    How to Apply:

    • Submit a short “About Me” essay in 300 words or less. What you write entirely depends on what you think is important.
    • Optional but helpful: Your public social media accounts. We check these for culture fit: to see your values, hobbies, and personality.

    Send all the details over to hello@eatlowbrow.com. There is only one opening, so you’ll need to act quickly.

    If we like what we see, we’ll respond within 2 days to set an interview with you.

    In Lowbrow, we look after our people and we don’t just say that because we’re luring you into a trap. In fact, we plan out the entire careers of our team together with the growth of our company so we take hiring very seriously. The catch: we set the bar really high. If you decide to apply, be prepared for a serious challenge, but also expect a terrific, supportive team who’ll help you succeed no matter what.

  • What is Lowbrow?

    If you’re not familiar with Lowbrow, the best way to learn is to take time to eat in our restaurants. Make sure to do this before sending your application so you understand what we're doing and what we want to do.

  • How do you hire people?

    We look for drive, curiosity, self-awareness, self-learning, talent, kindness, accountability, and the hunger to be the best—all of the above.

  • Do I need great credentials?

    It helps, but it’s not very important. Both of our founders are college dropouts.

  • Where’s your office?

    We don’t have one. We meet when we need to and we communicate and manage our projects mostly online via apps.

  • What’s it like working at Lowbrow?

    It’s a high-pressure, low-stress work environment. Everyone is expected to perform at their peak, but we don’t like ad-agency culture where people literally die from exhaustion. We manage this by making sure that everyone gets plenty of rest, works smart (not hard), and takes control of their own schedules.

    We want work to be meaningful and energizing for everyone in our team.

  • Wow your site is so colorful, you guys must be so fun!

    We’re just dropping a trail of candies to lure unsuspecting children to a boiling pot. Our work is really fun, but it's also really challenging.

  • What’s difficult mean?

    It means you’ll never reach whatever ceiling it is you’re trying to hit. You’ll always feel inadequate and you’ll have to find ways to keep on clawing your way up. That’s how we all learn.

  • Wow, you’re horrible people!

    On the contrary, we don't like horrible people. There's a saying that goes "You're the average of the five people you spend most of your time with," and we believe that's true. We really make sure we're surrounded with the nicest and most talented people we can find. This way, we can keep on raising the bar and making sure everyone's happy and productive.

Lowbrow Culture

L is for Loser

Our name Lowbrow is a daily reminder that we’re uncultured losers, so we always have to keep on trying.

We Want Plates

No mason jars, no donut burgers, no salted egg ube cake on a chopping board. While we’re always trying out new things, we don’t want to ride the next big fad.

High-Performance Naps

Napping is a vital part of everyone’s job. So is performing at your peak and pushing the bar higher for everyone.

Dumb Food, Done Smart

We like cooking food that most people eat—but we obsess over getting it perfect. Otherwise, we’re no better than Mcdonald’s.

Friends Fries

Work feels incredible when you like hanging out with your coworkers. We make sure we get the right people for the right friendships.
