Zoku needs 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 Sidekick, you will be our residents’ go-to person, connector and problem solver. 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 Sidekick is highly versatile, flexible and focused completely around Zoku’s residents and making them feel at ease while connecting them to others. One day you might be welcoming residents helping them to check in and out, the next day you might rock the Kindred Spirits Bar, showing off your barista skills, while helping out serving people in the Living Kitchen the day after that. The Sidekick position reports to the Duty Manager on shift.
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.Apply here
Whatever position you are filling for the day, all Sidekicks are responsible for being the first point of contact to anyone walking through Zoku’s doors. You are the glue that holds this place together and responsible for the social atmosphere within Zoku. Above all else, our main mission is to make people happy as we are in the business of taking care of people.
Below you will find a glimpse of what the main responsibilities are per position:
As the first person to run into, you’re taking care of residents, checking them in/out and answering any of their questions.
At the Kindred Spirits Bar, you’re both a barista as well as a beer master, preparing all drinks and serving people while acting as a social connector among residents, guests and members.
As the chef’s right hand, you’re helping him/her with running breakfast/lunch or dinner smoothly while welcoming, assisting and socializing with anyone grabbing a bite.
You help welcoming all guests coming in for their meeting and help create a special experience for them, setting up the space as well as providing them with service during the day.

3. Working at Zoku
Will you join the team? How exciting, we can’t wait! We are planning for you to start working at Zoku mid-March, depending on our final opening date. We are planning to open Zoku’s doors in April 2021 – fingers crossed.
A place you can call a second home, even on your first visit.
So much more than a long stay hotel. It’s a neighborhood.
Where the neighbors borrow more than a cup of sugar.
They share ideas and ambitions.
They mix the local lowdown with the global highlights.
Where the word on the street keeps you streets ahead.
For this is a ‘good company’ company where everyone can bring their dreams to the table.
Where those busy connecting the world can catch up with each other and the scene surrounding them.
Smart and uncompromising, Zoku is a hive of smart lofts and friendly spaces, designed so you can stay connected, well rested and throw yourself into your work, your play and our city.
This is a place that is furnished to fit, not to split.
Encouraging each other to live, not exist.
To dream, not sleep.
To smarten up, rather than dumb down.
To go at it together, rather than alone.
Together we can work hard, play strong and rest easy.
Whilst we blur borders, combine cultures and live our dreams.
