Launch Director - Jobs
By Bean, Brewbike HQ, 04/28/2021
Brewbike is changing the future of business for the future of all of us. We launch lean student-run food and beverage retail on college campuses across the country. In the process, we’re equipping and enabling the next generation of American entrepreneurs. Brewbike was founded in 2016 by undergrads at Northwestern University. Since then, we’ve raised $4M+, expanded to campuses nationwide, and trained hundreds of young entrepreneurs.
As a Launch Director, you will oversee Brewbike operations at one or more universities. This includes managing our campus teams of ~20-40 student employees who operate their campus operations on a day-to-day basis, implementing solutions to improve daily operations, and leading growth initiatives. This role is an opportunity to work at a startup that’s taking off, to work with a small, tight-knit team, to have lots of autonomy and influence over a growing company, and to build real skills and have real impact.
