Get Yo-Self a Job

The Nautilus Restaurant Group is an incredible and unique place to work. We have three restaurants, all with their own character and personality, but at each we seek to find staff that share our passion for food, drink, energy, atmosphere, and social experiences.

  • The original home of The Nautilus, on nantucket, is an intimate and energetic, with just 32 dining seats and 18 bar seats in a single small room with an open kitchen. 
  • Also on Nantucket we have the Gaslight, a Japanese Izakaya themed live music venue with about 100 seats in a variety of settings including over 20 seats at our wrap around bar and another 20 seats outdoors on our patio. 

At all of our restaurants we expect our staff to be able to consistently and professionally provide all of the necessary ingredients for our guests to feel empowered to simply let their guard down, enjoy themselves, try new things, and have extremely memorable sensory experiences. We want talented people with great personalities who are open to learning more in the world of food and beverage. We want those people to then be excited to share that knowledge with others.
