Shift Leader



Washington, DC, USA
Posted on Friday, July 28, 2023
Hey there, we’re Foxtrot.
Foxtrot is the digitally native evolution of the corner store – a one-stop shop for those seeking thoughtful curation that’s a reflection of themselves and their city – offering a curated collection of daily essentials in-store and delivered in under an hour via our app and website.
Our spaces offer all the most-loved aspects of neighborhood cafes – beautifully designed interiors that wrap you in the welcoming aroma of freshly brewed coffee, comfortable lounge areas to work and relax, and chef-prepared meals to snack on throughout the day – while bringing together mindful people, brands and goods to create a community of discovery and joy.
Since launching our native app in 2013, we now operate a robust e-commerce business and have opened 20+ retail stores in Chicago, DC, Dallas, and Austin, and are rapidly scaling to take this first-of-its-kind omnichannel brand nationwide.
We are continuing to grow in the DMV with a new store opening in Logan Square this fall!
As a Shift Leader, you will assist the Store Manager and Assistant Store Manager by leading and coaching the team. You will be responsible for the day-to-day operations during your shift, which may include leading a team and managing the cafe, customer experience, and/or online ordering.
