We are a high performing, hybrid team that aims to make people’s lives better every day. Our goal is to work smarter, not harder, but the problems we are tackling require hard work, imagination, and a willingness to collaborate, brainstorm, support, and learn from each other. We are a family that aims to function as a well-oiled machine. Retaaza is a place for personal and professional growth and where excellence is rewarded and failure is a side effect of the continual learning process. We have high expectations of each other and of the organization and ask that our team members show up with a positive, can-do attitude that is uplifting to others around them. We authentically care about each other and the stakeholders we are serving. The passion that we bring to Retaaza and our personal work ethic makes deadlines, and the unavoidable stress, easier. We expect team members to feel a sense of accountability for the success of the people they work with every day and for the success of the business. We want everyone to come to work feeling like they can unapologetically bring their whole self. Our work requires heart, humility, excellence, creativity, and respect. Ultimately, the work, and our mission of refreshing the way we feed community, is bigger than any individual.

At Retaaza, we value diversity and inclusion in all forms. We strive to have a workforce that is reflective of the communities we serve, and we believe that a diverse team brings unique perspectives, skills, and experiences that enrich all of us. We are dedicated to empowering every individual and promoting a culture of inclusivity and belonging. We take pride in being an equal opportunity workplace and welcome all qualified individuals to apply.

We can’t wait to welcome you to our team.
