Counter Person/ Barista
Description: Front of House work at Elephantine Bakery entails, most straightforwardly, serving customers food and coffee. At a more fundamental level, this work balances the soft skills of welcoming guests and nurturing a sense of community, with more technical ones, including moving quickly, working efficiently, multitasking, and thinking ahead. This work is vital to our mission at the Elephantine—our counter team is responsible for creating our atmosphere, reflecting our cultural values and making every guest interaction as positive and memorable as possible.
Description: Working in a small team, our bakers manage the production of a suite of scratch made pastries and breads. We also make all of our creams, fillings, and glazes in-house. We use time-honored artisanal techniques, primarily in the French tradition, to craft our breads and croissants. Baking work straddles two programs: yeasted products, including breads/viennoiseries, and sweets. We are looking for dynamic people to slot into our existing program and to help expand our offering to new frontiers as well. This work is best done by detail-oriented, quick-thinking, highly observant people who are passionate about process and technique.
