Season is May 1st - October 31st. Must have a valid driver’s license and be able to stay the whole season! Housing and meals included.

Why SHR?

Spotted Horse Ranch is unique in our location with reference to the town of Jackson, WY. We are located 30 minutes south of town which sets us 45 minutes from Grand Teton National Park and 1.5 hours from Yellowstone. Our close proximity to these world-famous Parks are a huge attraction for both our guests and staff. Downtown Jackson is also a huge draw with great restaurants, unique shopping, museums, art galleries, and a thriving nightlife on the square. 

We are a smaller ranch with a max capacity of 36 guests which assists in a tight knit ranch family each week. One of the many perks is taking advantage of the breathtaking scenery while hiking, horseback riding and fly fishing during your time off! The ranch sits right on the banks of the Hoback river and is surrounded by the Bridger-Teton National Forest as well as the Gros Ventre Wilderness Area. These public lands offer the ability to explore absolutely anywhere you desire! 

The ranch hosts two weekly cookouts in our outside dining area across the river serving steak one night and brisket the other. Cookouts are completed with a dutch oven dessert, an outside bar and live music for everyone to enjoy.

We seek an assistant chef who brings the necessary energy, creativity and dedication to achieve this challenging task. We need adaptable workers who are attentive and responsible as the average work day on the ranch can be fast paced and changing. 

We require previous culinary experience and an outgoing personality. We take pride in a creative, western based food experience and serve our guests family style.
