Part-Time Remote Support Team Member – Workweek Lunch (2 Positions Open)

Hi! I’m Talia Koren, the founder of Workweek Lunch, and I’m looking for TWO patient and detail-oriented Support Team members to be there for our lovely customers when they run into issues using our site, have account questions and more. 

This role is ideal for someone who loves to be a helping hand and knows the value of amazing customer service. Knowing how to cook is a major plus. You’ll be talking directly with customers on multiple platforms, so being able to manage different channels and stay organized is a must.

We already have a few Support Team members, but as our company grows we need more folks to help our customers! That’s where you come in.

We’re looking for two Support Team members based in the US. One for weekends only (a few hours every weekend) and the other is for weekdays during business hours.

Please read the full application before applying! More details below.

Summary of the Support Team Roles

The below applies to both roles.

  • Our customers generally need help with issues such as using our new website and understanding its functionality, logging in or updating their account, canceling or re-starting their memberships and other changes to their accounts.
  • We manage support requests and customer questions through email, our Facebook group and Slack.
  • In addition to Slack and Facebook, we use Google Suite and Mailchimp.
  • Knowing how to cook will help a lot in this role, as you may need to answer cooking questions occasionally.

About Workweek Lunch:

WWL is an online meal plan subscription and food blog dedicated to helping people all over the world meal prep to save time, money and eat more homecooked meals.

I started WWL in 2016 as a food blog and Instagram account and we launched the subscription in 2018. The subscription includes weekly meal plans, tested meal prep recipes, a meal planning tool and access to a private community.

It’s the only meal plan subscription that aligns with Intuitive Eating and is not made for weight loss, calorie counting or food restriction, which is one of the main reasons people come to us over our competitors. WWL has been featured in the New York Times, Women’s Health, Buzzfeed, The Kitchn, NBC Better, Prevention and more.  

Scroll to the bottom of this page to read more about our company culture and mission.

WWL has big plans to scale up in 2021 and the years to come. We’re launching our new incredible membership website (the future home to all these recipes) which will help us continue to build our member base. We’re also developing new products to help our customers and readers improve as home cooks. 

Our Culture & Mission

The mission behind Workweek Lunch is to help people create their own systems around food that allow them to live a more full life. It’s easy to feel bogged down by worrying about every meal. Our content and services help busy folks with meal planning, recipe searching, grocery list making, food budgeting and learning how to streamline the cooking process so they can spend less time in the kitchen and more time doing what’s important to them.

We currently have a small entirely remote team of two full-time employees (including me) and a handful of contractors based all over the country. Everyone on our team is friendly, inclusive and we’re all self-starters. We’re passionate about serving our community and customers, learning more about the ins and outs of our industry and having fun while working, of course!

At WWL, we work hard and we get it all done, but it’s important to us that work is never a source of stress. We’re making meal plans, not saving lives. We value our work and having a life outside it, which is parallel to our philosophy around meal prep and food.

Workweek Lunch is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Workweek Lunch does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, non-disqualifying physical or mental disability, national origin, veteran status or any other basis covered by appropriate law. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, merit, and business need.
