We’re looking for our first business operations and strategy hire to help us create a more sustainable food system. You are a jack of all trades, like to get things done in the scrappiest way possible, and enjoy the strategic, the tactical, and the stuff that just needs to get done. And most importantly, you share our values. This position is based in Oakland, CA and offers competitive salary and equity.
Tezza is an early-stage public benefit corporation focused on climate change and sustainability. Our vision is a world where on every menu, grocery shelf, and table, the most exciting foods are also the most sustainable. To achieve this, our mission is to use modern, high-throughput science to discover cultured foods that tap into the diversity of the microbial world.
We are starting with a new category of aged, hard cheeses—that happen to be made from plants. The dairy industry produces more than 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions—more than aviation—and poses further sustainability as well as animal-welfare challenges. We provide better, more affordable, and healthier products that bring people together around a shared love of food.

You will be working with us on our business execution and overall strategy. Some of your responsibilities will include:
What do you get out of it?

You can learn about our values, hiring process, and benefits here.
To apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a resume and responses to the following prompts (a conversational, unpolished tone is fine):
