Who we are 

CloudKitchens helps restaurateurs around the world succeed in online food delivery - our goal is to make food more affordable, higher quality and convenient for everyone. 

We take underutilized properties and transform them into smart kitchens so they can better serve restaurateurs, customers and the neighborhoods they’re in. Every time we launch a new facility we create jobs in that neighborhood, and we’re proud to provide a wide range of cuisines and options for healthy food at an affordable price.

We're changing the game for restaurateurs whether they’re entrepreneurs opening their first restaurant all the way through to your favorite global quick-service restaurant chains. 


What you’ll do

  • Provide legal support for the labor/employment needs of a global company. 
  • Partner with HR team members to develop strategy and approach on employment-related legal matters. 
  • Draft company policies and procedures for compliance and update as required. As well as review and draft contracts, separation agreements, and other employment-related documents. 
  • Assist with management of employment litigation and/or arbitration. 
  • Provide daily legal advice on issues such as leaves of absence, workplace accommodations, terminations, workforce restructuring activities, investigations, discipline, wage and hour, workplace safety regulations (OSHA), and related matters.


What we’re looking for

  • Qualified attorney with 7+ years of experience in a combination of in-house companies and law firms. 
  • Deep experience in employment law, including counseling and litigation experience.
  • Self-starter with the ability to multi-task and problem solve, plus strong oral and written communication skills.
  • California Employment law experience required; global experience a significant plus.
  • Comfortable interfacing directly with managers and business unit leaders. 


Why join us

  • Growing market: You’ll be focused on an $80 billion market that’s projected to reach at least $500 billion by 2030 in the US alone. 
  • Changing the restaurant industry: You’ll be part of a team that helps restaurants succeed in online food delivery. 
  • Collaborative environment: You will receive support and guidance from experienced colleagues and managers, helping you to learn, grow and achieve your goals, and you’ll work closely with other teams to ensure our customers’ success.


What else you need to know

This role is based in our Los Angeles office location. We believe that people do their best work when they are together. As a company, we’re in the marketplace of ideas and innovation. When you’re constantly innovating, changing how an industry works, inventing new products and processes - and we are doing all these things - we believe we’re better as a team in-person. That’s why all of our teams (except for our field-based roles) are now working from one of our office locations 5 days a week. Looking forward to sharing more about a Career of Substance at CloudKitchens!
