Greenhouse Supervisor
At Lufa Farms, we’re on a mission to build a better food system and, at the heart of this, is growing food where people live and growing it responsibly. This led us to build the world’s first commercial rooftop greenhouse in 2011, followed by the world’s largest less than a decade later. With four urban farms (and counting!) producing year round, we need exceptional leaders to oversee and coordinate day-to-day operations.
The Greenhouse Supervisor is responsible for the smooth and efficient day-to-day operation of one of our rooftop greenhouses. The Supervisor participates in the hiring, coaching, and evaluation of greenhouse staff, schedules work in the team’s calendars based on operational needs, works alongside the team to ensure work is done, maintains high safety standards in the greenhouse, and schedules maintenance and repairs. The Supervisor also monitors all greenhouse activities to ensure the health of the plants and quality of the harvest is optimized. If you are an excellent manager we encourage you to apply, even if they’ve never worked in a greenhouse - we can teach you that part.
