Miso Robotics is transforming the food industry, and making lives better. We've developed an AI-powered kitchen robot named Flippy which automates the most repetitive of kitchen tasks, such as operating a deep fryer. Flippy is fun to watch, but under the hood, he’s powered by a sophisticated AI platform – all driven by our proprietary deep learning experience and patented technologies.
Miso is a well known first-mover in food AI, and it continues to enjoy that first-mover advantage today. The company has raised over $100 million from crowdfunding, which we believe makes it THE most successful crowdfunding story in history. It has successfully piloted its products with the most prominent global brands in food, and now it’s time for the company to partner with institutional capital and super-charge the commercialization of what we do.
The challenge of bringing AI and robotics into commercial kitchens requires many disciplines to work together, and the composition of our teams at Miso reflects this multidisciplinary approach. We’re proud to have built a world-class team, and we’re looking for more exceptional people to join us.
If you believe, like we do, that the future of the kitchen involves artificial intelligence and robots (HINT: It definitely does!), and if you want to count yourself among the handful of amazing people on the leading edge of creating them, then Miso Robotics may be the right place for you!

As the Chief of Staff at Miso Robotics, you will be working closely with our CEO and executive team to support Miso’s critical initiatives. You will be the right-hand person to our CEO, facilitating efficient decision-making and ensuring execution, follow-through, and accountability. This is a new role for Miso, and there are tremendous learning opportunities within this role.
You’ll get direct experience in how to manage and operate a company. Working directly with the CEO, you’ll spend ample time together and will develop a high level of trust to execute on the things most important to the success of the company. You’ll have eyes on and/or drive big projects at the company, and will leverage your innate ability to manage both up and down, stay organized, and seamlessly collaborate. You’ll truly help to share the company’s future. This position is a career launchpad that will give you the ability, experience, and confidence to move into a senior position earlier in your career than you otherwise would have. Every day will likely look different, and you’ll be juggling and prioritizing multiple projects and tasks at once. And you have to execute on initiatives big and small with little guidance.
The pay range for this position is $120,000- 140,000 + equity + benefits. Since the company is pre-revenue, we all view our equity as being a key driver of why we choose to work at Miso. Our salary ranges are determined by data from our industry peers, the level of responsibility, job-related skills required, training, education, experience, and the current stage of Miso’s growth. The range posted for this role represents a range that Miso Robotics, in good faith, believes it is willing to pay at the time of this posting.
