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. One day you might be welcoming residents helping them to check in or out, the next you might rock the 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.

Above all else, our main mission is to make people happy at Zoku 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.
