State Park – Line Cook

You’re thinking about working at State Park? That’s great, we like it too!

State Park is a “restaurant disguised as a bar”, that’s been shaking drinks and playing tunes for the people of Cambridge since 2013. We provide skilled, focused hospitality while keeping the vibe and selections pretty laid back and accessible for whomever decides to come hang. At State Park you’ve always got a good chance of running into a drink or band that you haven’t had the chance to enjoy yet, and you’ll get to make a new friend while you’re at it.

Our menu is stacked with playful twists on bar classics and nods to the history of the neighborhood watering hole, complete with a pool table and pinball machines. On the employee side, we have things like secure scheduling, 20% fair wage surcharge on every check, and a pretty sweet button that says ‘I Work Here’ on it.

We bet you’d make an excellent addition to the team!

We are looking for a passionate and experienced line cook, looking to learn and grow. The ideal candidate is self-motivated, well organized and has a commitment to excellence. The Line Cook is responsible for working a station as a member of a team, while keeping with our standards of food quality and restaurant cleanliness. Qualified candidates will have some experience in a kitchen-driven or fine-dining environment. They will have a solid understanding of prep, set up and break down of a station, working service, and cleaning the kitchen at the end of service.

Joining Vincent’s and the three Mamaleh’s locations under the banner of Big Dipper Hospitality Group, State Park is able to provide more traditional career infrastructure than many neighborhood bars. Our HR department is extremely helpful when it comes to walking staff members through the benefits associated with working at BDHG such as, parking, discounted gym membership, Matched Simple IRA, and health insurance (for full time employees).

If this sounds like fun to you, drop us a resume and a short note and we will chat soon!

In Good Spirits,
