Text Rex Recommender (NYC)

Located in New York, NY

Responsibilities: Responding to user text message requests for restaurant recommendations on The Infatuation’s Text Rex platform.

Status: Freelance/Contract

Are you a restaurant savvy person that is constantly fielding texts from friends about “where to take someone on a third date for dinner in Soho, but nothing too formal because let’s not get ahead of ourselves here?” The Infatuation is in need of your services for our Text Rex platform.

Text Rex is a real time restaurant recommendation service provided by The Infatuation. Users send requests via SMS, and those messages end up in the hands of a real, live human being who responds with expert suggestions. Launched as a private beta in May, thousands of people are already using the platform, and new people are requesting access hourly.

To keep up with demand, we are in need of recommenders to work on a contract basis, covering weekday evenings between 7pm and 11pm and weekends between 8:30am and 11pm.

Interested? Send an email to sarah@theinfatuation.com with why you are the most qualified recommender in the game, along with one choice for the ideal restaurant for the following situations:

  • Lunch in Williamsburg
  • Casual dinner on the Upper West Side
  • Drinks and a light bite near Brooklyn Academy of Music
  • Date Night in the East Village

Note: Due to the high volume of submissions and the fact that we’re a small team, we may not be able to respond to each email. If it seems like a fit, we’ll be in touch!

We’re looking to the Infatuation community to help us decide where to go next, and where to eat when we get there. Do us a favor and fill out this survey.
