Job Details
Hewn, an independently owned and nationally recognized artisan bakery in Evanston, IL. is looking to hire an experienced and dedicated Bread Baker to join our team.  Applicants must have at least two years of artisan bread baking experience in a retail and/or wholesale bakery, and/ or be a recent culinary graduate (AA in Culinary Arts) (Please do not apply if you do not have this experience.). This position is perfect for an early riser, as shifts start at 2 am.  You must have experience using commercial bread ovens, as well as professional experience mixing, shaping and scoring sourdough loaves, baguettes, ciabatta and other items.  This is not a management-level position - this person reports directly to the Head Bread Baker and is a member of the bread baking team.  Experience with laminated doughs and brioche is a plus, as the bread team works with our pastry team on several items as well.  ServSafe Food Handlers and Allergen certification is required.

We make naturally fermented artisan breads and pastries by hand, from scratch, every day. We use locally sourced organic flour and grains. We are looking for someone who can work both independently and with a team and who is committed to producing high-quality, consistent work.  We recently moved to a larger space in Northeast Evanston and we need additional bakers to meet both retail and wholesale demand.

Hewn has been recognized in the New York Times, Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Chicago Magazine, Midwest Living, and many other local and national publications for our commitment to making naturally fermented artisan breads and pastries. We have a wonderful team of people who share our commitment to making the best possible products. We are a part of Evanston's progressive and unique food and drink scene, and we appreciate being in a diverse community. 

The safety of our staff is of utmost importance at this time.  Those being interviewed for the position will do so via Zoom for the first stage of the hiring process.  All staff do daily health checks as well as weekly COVID surveillance screening tests with a local lab.  Our staff wear masks at all times in the bakery, and we all assist with daily and weekly cleaning and sanitation protocols.

Please email your cover letter and resume for consideration. Pay is competitive and we offer health care benefits for our full-time employees. A simple IRA plan is also available.

All applicants must be able to lift 50 lbs and be on their feet for several hours.
