Are you ready to be a part of a passionate and dedicated team that's changing the pet food game? At Rebel Raw we're crafting all-natural, raw food that helps cats and dogs live longer, healthier lives. We're a tight-knit family-owned business that's been dedicated to making premium pet food since 2014. We use only the best human-grade meats and produce to make our fresh, high-quality pet food and treats. Our human food commercial kitchen in Atlanta is where all the magic happens.

Job Description

We are seeking motivated individuals to join our dedicated team in our commercial kitchen. As an integral part of our daily operations, you'll be responsible for a wide variety of tasks, from production tasks, receiving shipments to packing customer orders.

Our ideal candidate is someone who is detail-oriented, organized, and motivated to take on any challenge that comes their way. You'll be relied on for your problem-solving skills and ability to work independently, while also being a team player.
