Job Details
Hewn, an independently owned and nationally recognized artisan bakery in Evanston, just north of Chicago IL, is looking to hire an experienced and dedicated Bread Baker to join our growing team.  Applicants must have at least one year of artisan bread baking experience in a retail and/or wholesale bakery, and/or be a recent culinary graduate  (Please do not apply if you do not have this experience.). 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.  Experience with laminated doughs and brioche is a plus, as the bread team works with our pastry team on several items as well.  Applicants should be willing to work afternoon/evening shifts and weekends. 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 need additional bakers as our business expands.

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. 

Please email your cover letter and resume for consideration. Pay is competitive and we offer Medical, Dental, Vision, Long Term Disability and Life Insurance for our full-time employees. A simple IRA plan is also available.  A moving stipend is provided for staff needing to move to the Chicago area.

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

Part of Hewn Bakery

The word "hewn" is a way to connect the past with the future. Everything at Hewn is made in-house, from scratch daily. We source our grains from local, organic farms, and all of our breads are hand-mixed, hand-shaped and naturally fermented without commercial yeast. We appreciate our partnerships with local farmers, and we enjoy creating new items using heritage flours.

Regardless of experience, every new baker hired at Hewn goes through our extensive training program. Each staff person is provided with opportunities for professional growth. We have a wonderful team of people who share our commitment to making the best possible products.

Hewn has been recognized in the New York Times, Chicago Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, Saveur magazine and many other local and national publications for our commitment to making naturally fermented artisan breads and pastries. We are a part of Evanston's burgeoning food and drink scene, and we appreciate being in a diverse community.
