Job Description:

Who are we?

Kodiak Cakes is a fast-growing natural food company located in the scenic Rocky Mountains of Park City, Utah. Our journey with food began by restoring the tradition of whole grain flapjacks from the American frontier. In the process, we discovered that foods made closer to nature are not only more wholesome but taste better and are packed with clean energy. We rely on that clean energy from nature to fuel our active, outdoor lifestyle in the mountains.

We make the best-selling whole grain flapjack mix in the nation and also sell toaster waffles, baking mixes, oatmeal, and syrup at a number of retailers. We're expanding rapidly as our business continues to grow year-after-year and need to build our team with people that share our passion for the outdoors, bring industry experience, thrive in an entrepreneurial culture, and want to make an impact on the front lines of the food revolution. We believe that eating real food closer to nature, being active outdoors, and preserving local nature will bring back that old, balanced partnership with the wild that our forebears forged out on the frontier. We embrace the spirit of the Kodiak - a pristine wilderness with a rich ecosystem - and we rely on that spirit of the Kodiak to inspire the work we do, the food we eat, and the way we play.
