Merchandising Associate - CPG
**USE LINK AT END OF DESCRIPTION BELOW TO FORMALLY APPLY - QUESTIONS IN APPLICATION ARE MANDATORY**
Here at STADIUM, we’re focused on team lunches, and client lunches.
What makes us different is that we’re the only company where groups can order meals from different restaurants and have them delivered together. Eg.. Bryan can order a burger from Shake Shack, Peter can order a salad from sweetgreen, VJ can get a vegan sandwich from by Chloe etc. and have it arrive at the same time, hassle-free. Each lunch is neatly packed and labeled with the diner’s name.
Our goal is simple; we aspire to make organizing lunch easy and provide options that everyone in the group will enjoy. But, our company is complex and full of challenges. We intersect technology, B2B sales & marketing, food, and logistics.
