Hey there, welcome to Foxtrot.
We’re the digitally-native evolution of the corner store—the one-stop-shop for those seeking thoughtful food experiences that are a reflection of themselves and their city. We offer a handpicked curation of daily essentials in-store and delivered in as little as 30 minutes, via our app and website.
Alongside our investors like Almanac Insights, Momofuku founder David Chang, Sweetgreen co-founder/co-chief executive officer Nicolas Jammet, and most recently D1 Capital Partners, we’re building an omni-channel brand that seamlessly marries e-commerce delivery, proprietary inventory technology, and the feel-good community of neighborhood stores.
Our storefronts offer the most-loved aspects of the neighborhood: beautifully designed interiors that wrap you in the welcoming aroma of locally-sourced coffee, comfortable lounge areas to work and relax in, and chef-prepared meals to snack on throughout the day. And all in a space that joins mindful people, brands, and goods to create a community of discovery and joy. And our swift app and online store further highlight the Foxtrot experience, delivering a new kind of convenience that brings the store straight to your door.
Since launching in 2013, we now operate in Chicago, DC, Dallas, and Austin, rapidly scaling nationwide.

In this role, you'll be the go-to person for optimizing our HR tech (UKG) platforms and ensuring they run smoothly for our organization. You'll handle employee data like a pro, keeping it accurate and confidential while finding ways to make our processes more efficient. You'll also be one of our go-to for our team members, answering their questions and treating them like the shopkeepers we are.

  • Skilled in managing sensitive employee data with integrity, confidentiality, and compliance with privacy regulations.
  • Capable of maintaining and updating people-related dashboards for real-time insights and data visualization.
  • Strong communication and customer service skills to address FAQs and escalate complex inquiries.
  • Experienced in employment compliance, auditing, and ensuring accuracy and consistency of HR policies, procedures, and reporting to mitigate risks.
And we couldn’t round this out without mentioning some of the perks of working here, right? Beyond all the coffee you can drink, you’ll also enjoy our comprehensive (and growing) benefits program, 401(k) with an employer match, discounts while shopping, and more!
