Job Description

Rasa in Washington, DC is looking for one squad member to join our squad. Our ideal candidate is self-driven, punctual, and engaged.

RASA is a new Indian Fast Casual restaurant that is bringing the adventurous flavors of Indian cuisine to Washington, DC in a creative way. We are a locally-owned small business that opened up six months ago in the Navy Yard in SE. Since opening, we've been voted DC's Best Fast Casual Restaurant and Best New Restaurant of 2018, and are looking to bring on more talented, creative, upbeat, positive, hardworking and fun-loving people onto our squad as we grow.

At RASA, we serve chef-driven, local, seasonal, and healthful food. In food and in life, we don’t believe in toning down the spice. Life in flavor is more fun, so we live life to the fullest, and are looking for squad members who do too. We know that our squad is the most important ingredient to our success, and as such, we are looking to bring on the best. 

At RASA, our squad works hard, plays hard, contributes to our communities, and helps one other achieve our shared goals of providing awesome service to our guests, sharing delicious meals, and making the most of each moment. Attitude is more important than experience here, as we will teach you everything you need to know to be successful. We firmly believe your job should be something you look forward to and will have a playful, creative, and lively work environment, where you will be regularly interacting with both our guests and fellow squad members.
