Subject:  Job Specification

Position:  Senior Accountant & Controller

Target Compensation:  $90,000 - $115,000

Start Date:  February 2019

GATC Company Description:  GATC is an innovative, new poultry business with ~18 months of operating history, founded and headquartered in New York City and New Jersey.  The GATC vision was conceived and created to address a void in the rapidly expanding poultry market for chef-driven, artisanal and delicious turkey products outside of traditional whole-turkey and sliced deli meat consumption.  Approximately 60 percent of U.S. turkey consumption occurs in the month of November, and we are addressing the substantial market opportunity to make turkey a “year-round bird” and staple in every American’s diet as consumers seek more healthy alternatives to red meat and chicken. 

Today, GATC is an eight-person team with over 70 years of collective consumer branding and culinary experience.  The team also boasts two James Beard award-winning culinary experts and visionaries in the “clean” and organic foods space.  GATC raised capital from third-party investors in the fourth quarter of 2017 and gained significant distribution in 2018 across over 400 stores, one e-grocery platform, and growing.  We will target over 1,000 stores by year-end 2019.  As a result, we are looking to expand our team to pursue these exciting new opportunities and launch our business into the next phase of growth in 2019.  We are a small team and a very collaborative and flat organization, so this is an opportunity to have a large impact day-one and manage a significant silo of the business as we grow.
