THE ROLE: BAKER (UWS)

Bakers make a variety of artisan breads and pastries each day including loaves, baguettes, rolls, cakes, muffins, brioche and more! Our bakers collaborate closely with one another in addition to receiving mentorship from our Head Bakers. The ideal candidate will find joy in making others happy with products they make and shape by hand.

- Work to efficiently scale, mix, portion, shape, proof, and bake-off multiple bread doughs, as well as scaling, mixing, portioning, and baking of multiple cake batters all while ensuring consistency and maintaining Levain's standards of delicious quality
- Maintain high levels of cleanliness and organization of assigned work areas, adhering to sanitation/health regulations and company policy
- Problem solve with Head Baker, baking team, and bakery management around any issues in regards to quality, quantity, or ingredients
- Use a variety of kitchen tools and equipment such as: stand mixers, convection/deck ovens, cutting tools, rolling pins, lames, electric scales
- Set a positive tone for the team/bakery for the day (our bakers are the first to arrive each morning!)

What we’re looking for:

- Prior baking experience specifically in breads and cakes preferred
- Food Safety Manager Certification required
- Passion for what you do – you enjoy the process of creating something from start to finish and are motivated to continuously hone your craft and technique.
- Adaptability and flexibility – you recognize that in the food industry, anything can – and will – happen and you’re able to calmly troubleshoot issues.
- Eye for detail – you’re meticulous about the items you create and understand the technique and patience it takes to create consistently high-quality products.
- Collaborative spirit and commitment to Levain’s core values – you’re a team player and willing to lend a hand or elevate those around you. You add your own individuality to an already positive and uplifting work environment. --A good sense of humor doesn’t hurt either!

Full-time; multi-shift availability needed- early mornings start times (between 4:30am - 6am); weekend and holiday availability required

  • $22-25/hour

Benefits:

  • Dynamic work environment with a warm and supportive team
  • Health, vision, dental insurance with employer-funded HRA
  • Additional supplemental benefits: employee assistance program, citibike reiumbursement, 14 weeks paid parental leave

About Us:

Competitive swimmers and triathletes, Pam Weekes and Connie McDonald passed their grueling workouts by engaging in passionate conversations about starting their own company and baking, which ultimately inspired them to leave their respective careers in fashion and finance. They opened a small bread shop in 1995, which they named Levain Bakery.

One day, they created an ultimate chocolate chip walnut cookie to give them energy while training for a triathlon. They decided to sell a batch in their bakery, and they flew off the shelves. An icon was born. The cozy shop on West 74th Street quickly became a neighborhood favorite and a destination for epicurious travelers from around the world, hungry for the world-famous six-ounce cookies.

From the start they baked everything fresh on-site each day and donated the day’s leftovers to charity each night, actions that remain solidly in place over 25 years later. Levain Bakery now has locations across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic with more to come, plus ecommerce gift boxes.

We strive every day to embody our company’s five core values:

  • Welcome All- we are all in it together
  • Work Hard and Be Nice- we go above and beyond
  • Lead with Heart- we do the right thing
  • Rise Up- we are proactive
  • Savor It- we are present and find the fun!
