Zoku needs Night Sidekicks that easily connect to people, provide a warm welcome and help residents from A to B instead of being a traditional formal waiter. As a Night Sidekick, you will be our residents’ go-to person, connector and problem solver during the night. You will need to love sharing advice, looking after people and building a nest for our residents and always striving to provide service in better and more creative ways. The job of a Night Sidekick is highly versatile, flexible and focused completely around Zoku’s residents and making them feel at ease while connecting them to others. It involves welcoming, checking in and out our night owls, cleaning and making sure breakfast is ready in the morning.  

The Night Sidekick position reports to the Duty Managers. 

We will be opening our third location in Vienna, Austria, in, Q2 2021. Located in the central Second District of Leopoldstadt, Zoku Vienna will be close to the Vienna University of Economics and Business, the Messe Wien Conference Center, and the iconic Prater park.
