Head Chef

About Us
Generator is on a journey. Appropriate, given that we're a hostel accommodation brand. The journey began in London, swung through a heap of European capitals and is now leaping the Atlantic to land in Miami. Fast Company named us one of the top 50 most innovative global companies. We, of course, agree. And now we want a pretty awesome Director of Food & Beverage for Generator Miami. 
 
Here's the 'We're different' bit. Our spaces are safe and seriously social, in the proudest part of the beating heart of the cities we love. Cultural action, creative pulse and an outstanding way to waste some of the finite time the universe has given you - that's what Generator offers. Holds true for staff and visitors equally, and while chic design is always the backdrop, every Generator in every destination reflects the unique beat of that city's heart.
