Kured – Store Manager

Kured is the first quick-service charcuterie café concept located in Beacon Hill (we also have a shop in NYC!). We started as the “Sweetgreen” or “Chipotle” for charcuterie boards, and have since expanded into gourmet sandwiches, brunch, coffee, and all-things charcuterie small-bites! We garner inspiration from Madrid and the social-oriented culture of Europe, where it is commonplace to eat charcuterie with friends, and reminisce in good company. Our goal is to make charcuterie more accessible to people, and power conversation among our customers. 

We’re looking for a store manager to join our Kured family and oversee our Boston operation. This starts with our flagship store in Beacon Hill, and eventually will include oversight to other Boston locations as we expand. Our store managers are the heart of our business, not only at the store level but community-wide in Boston. The ideal candidate leads enthusiastically, is a great community ambassador, skilled people developer, entrepreneurial, great at multitasking and priority management, has high personal standards, and is warm and genuine. As a startup, your work will be instrumental to both daily operations and long-term growth across the Boston restaurant ecosystem.

  • Ability to work a flexible schedule based on business needs – willingness to get your hands dirty despite manager title, and work the line, cash register, or prep station if need be and support staff ongoing throughout the day 
  • Able to work ten hour-plus shifts, plus ability to stand, sit, or walk for extended periods of time 
  • Maintain exceptional food safety and security standards
