Location: Fremont (Seattle)
Team Size: 5-7
Status: Hourly, Non-Exempt
Hours: 6 or 7 a.m. to 3 or 4 p.m.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR
The Flying Apron's Baking & Production team is looking for a new, 1-2 year experienced prep and production baker. We'd like someone with large-scale operational experience - or - the interest in producing in a large environment. We need a baker that is OBSESSED with making batters, doughs, breads, pies that are CONSISTENT and beautifully prepared to spec every day. We operate and produce products daily to support our retail and wholesale operations. Shifts can start as early as 6 a.m. and will generally conclude by 3-4 p.m. daily.

MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHO YOU ARE You take pride in your work. You are curious. You ask questions, communicate and pay attention. You seek out efficient methods for stocking and replenishing raw goods so they flow with the needs of recipes and movements of the team. You understand that when the work is done it's time to go home, but that you don't go home until the work is done. Cleanliness is second nature to you; you insist upon sterilizing between shifts, understand the value of a clean and neat work space and dream about new side-work and cleaning projects. You're a stickler for consistency in end-product delivery, and know the shortcuts to speedy prep, or have a knack for figuring out how to assembly-line production when necessary. You are systematic in your execution of tasks; you thrive off of the hustle and buzz that a rockin' kitchen provides.

WHAT'S REQUIRED Degree in the culinary arts or 2-years industry experience in baking specifically Weekend availability we have a 7-day production requirement with shifts that are regular and rotating, so weekend availability is required.

WHAT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE Experience in a chemically challenging environment -- we're gluten-free and plant-based here, this is a completely different ball game, baking-wise Gluten-free or vegan baking background, especially working with the combination of the two
