With Dig Inn's Next Crop Program, you’ll work hands-on with our Support and Restaurant teams and will gain valuable insight into the restaurant industry and develop leadership skills. Next Croppers work cross-departmentally within a specific area of focus in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment. You know no task is too small (Next Croppers sometime help handle customer service, keep our office organized, etc.) but know that accomplishing these tasks quickly and efficiently leads to more responsibility and new projects. We're looking for go-getters, people as passionate about rebuilding the food system as creating systems and ambitious team players who know how to get sh*t done.
Also, we talk… a lot. Good communication skills are paramount – you’ll need to stay on top of messages, juggle multiple project threads, and close the loop (if you see something, do something.) A love of hospitality, food, and the restaurant industry is a must.
Dig Inn's Next Crop is a paid experience similar to an internship. Next Crop programs are paid hourly and on a rolling basis and require a commitment of 20–40 hours per week (we're flexible based on your schedule, but prefer full time!

- Prep vegetables for photo shoots, trainings and special events as needed.

Dig Inn is a farm-to-table food company with over 25 locations in New York and the Northeast, serving seasonal vegetables and culinary comfort food on an urban scale.
The company is built on a culture of driven curiosity and ambitious innovation, finding and implementing new solutions to offering a simple, healthy, affordable meal. Our mission is to build a better food system (one vegetable at a time) that offers a better deal to customers, cooks, and farmers alike.
Since getting started in 2011, we have focused on the essentials of our mission- building kitchens, training chefs, and developing one-on-one relationships with over 50 partner farms. The next few years will be a period of expansion, as we open in new cities and use the platform we’ve built for a better conversation around sourcing, cooking, and the business of food.
And did we mention free Dig Inn for all employees? We strongly recommend the sweet potatoes.
Dig Inn believes in the power of a shared table to bring people together as we are committed to building a culturally inclusive team. Diverse candidates encouraged to apply.
