Dandelion Chocolate is growing! We’re always scouting for hard-working, motivated chocolate enthusiasts:
Our first focus is ensuring that every customer experience is great. You will train with Four Barrel Coffee, spend a day with our chocolate production crew learning how to make chocolate, and attend our Chocolate 101 & 102 classes. After that, you’ll be ready to dive in and share your knowledge of chocolate with visitors and regulars alike. Each day begins by reading the Daily Operations report where, along with your schedule and tasks, you might learn fun facts about the newest pastry on the menu, that there will be a private chocolate tour coming around noon, and to expect a tv crew the following morning.

Your mornings typically start with a team meeting to review the day’s tasks and goals. After prepping chocolate molds in the tempering room you work your way through a pile of chocolate covered dishes that need to be sparkling, orderly, and ready for action. While delivering a new bag of cocoa beans, you see that our storage space needs more organization so you proactively take a few moments to clear a walkway so there is a safe, clear path for everyone to move through.

We are building out a new space! We are looking for individuals to be part of the core building team at our new factory location, 298 Alabama Street, and to make our vision for a larger factory and chocolate destination into a reality. Our ideal candidate takes pride in their work and easily integrates themselves into a team. You appreciate working in a collaborative environment and your team knows they can depend on you when they need an extra hand. (read more)
We are constantly testing to improve our process/flavor, developing our teams, and welcoming visitors into our open factory/cafe. You will supervise and plan production operations, and manage the team of chocolate makers. You’ll be reporting to the Head of Production and working closely with other managers (Packaging, Flavor, Quality, Alabama Production). You’ll be responsible for planning and executing our chocolate production to meet the highest quality standards. One of the most important aspects of this role will be eventually transitioning the team and space from production goal focused to production with an emphasis on education (training other chocolate makers), limited runs, and learning all there is to know about the nuances of small batch chocolate making.

If any of the above roles sound like a potential fit, we’d love learning more about you and what you’re looking for in your long-term career. Please include 2-3 sentences about your long-term career plans and how this particular opportunity at Dandelion Chocolate might help prepare you for that long term vision. We do our best to respond to each candidate, typically within 7-14 days. To apply for a role in the future, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dandelion Chocolate constantly invests in its people and culture. We offer excellent perks including subsidized medical, vision, and dental benefits as well as the option to enroll in our 401k program. Hourly and salaried team members accrue paid vacation and sick time. Our team members also enjoy commuter benefits, local gym discounts, and lots of chocolate tasting opportunities.
Our culture is fun, hard-working, and we love to learn. While no two days are the same, we’re always experimenting whether that’s testing different roasting profiles, tasting a new nibby scone recipe, improving our customer experience, or trying out a new prototype chocolate making machine. We look for folks who give 110%, roll with each day’s unexpected surprises, and bring out the best in others.
If you have any questions regarding current or future openings please email us at email@example.com. We do our best to respond to each candidate, typically within 7-14 days.
