  • Collaborate on launching our Pinterest board and help maintain our presence on that platform

2. Website recipe development:

  • Brainstorm and draft creative recipes using our veggie burgers, and help in the kitchen to test them

Time commitment: 2 days / week (14-16 hours), minimum 3 month commitment. Training will be in person at first, but will thereafter switch to on- and off-site depending on what kind of work needs to be done—there’s a lot of flexibility here with the hours. 

Stipend: $40 / day
