Social Media Intern


We are looking for a creative and multitalented social media whiz to join our team! Starbird’s Social Media Intern will be integral in helping us to grow Starbird’s marketing efforts and persona in the community. We have a lot of exciting ideas in the pipeline and are looking for someone who is not afraid to jump right in and get his/her hands dirty, who loves learning on the job, and isn’t afraid to ask a lot of questions.

Starbird is the nation’s first super premium fast food concept. Our first restaurant opened in the heart of Silicon Valley in Sunnyvale, CA in June 2016. Since then, we have opened new Bay Area locations in San Jose and Foster City as well as in Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ERs. Additionally, we are excited to announce our upcoming newest location opening in the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) later this year!

Starbird reimagines fast food to meet the needs of a new America, keeping the good parts and fixing the bad ingredients, tastes and experiences. The star of Starbird’s menu is our “positively delicious chicken” that’s hand cut, hand battered in our signature gluten free batter, and small batch fried, and highlighted in sandwich, salad, taco and tender box form. We also bake our own bread and make all of our sauces and spreads from scratch.
