Barista/Coffee Assistant

Hobart /
Enterprise – Kitchen /
Full-time
This isn’t a cafe, nor a restaurant.

We’re a software company, located in North Hobart. We’re a team of 50+ people who are passionate about making a positive change in the creative industry. Our digital art application, Procreate, is used by the world’s leading creative professionals and millions of artists world-wide.

The garden is where we congregate everyday, where people exchange ideas and share conversation over great food and coffee. More than food service, our kitchen team exemplifies care and strives for impeccable quality and in everything they do.

Focus on exceptional quality 

Given our non-traditional environment, your role isn’t constrained by business and profitability. This means you can truly focus on quality when it comes to food and coffee. You’ll be working with a chef who has honed his craft in top-tier restaurants across Australia, and an experienced team lead with passion and the knowledge and drive to back it up.

You will also have the opportunity to really get to know your regulars - they are your colleagues!

Who are we looking for? 

Given the central nature of this role, we’re looking for someone who loves caring for others, is friendly and loves to chat and banter. 
We have a few self-professed coffee aficionados who appreciate quality, so if you have a background in specialty coffee, you'll always have someone to discuss the finer points with. (We are also open to training you if you already have a foundational knowledge and experience in coffee-making.)

Seperate sections, one team!

Besides your core responsibility for coffee, you’ll be helping out with daily kitchen activities such as deliveries, stock monitoring, basic food preparation, dishwashing and generally keeping the kitchen clean, organised and fully functioning. As we have a lean team, it is important to us that you can show initiative, work fast, efficiently, and unsupervised. Restaurant or coffee shop management experience will be valued highly.

    • A social, friendly and engaging personality
    • Demonstrates initiative and proactively solves problems
    • Experience in high-volume barista position (300+ covers/day solo)
    • Ability to efficiently and effectively manage your time and various competing priorities
