Dandelion Chocolate is growing! We’re always scouting for hard-working, motivated chocolate enthusiasts:
There’s definitely no typical day as an Office Manager. Your morning might start off with lightly organizing the multi-use office space to prepare it for upcoming meetings, classes, and daily deliveries. With emails and the space tended to, you turn your focus to the upcoming holiday projects. Today you are gathering vendor & business contacts for this year’s holiday cards which includes checking in with managers, organizing a master spreadsheet, and coordinating with our third-party card writing vendor. In the afternoon, you walk 5-6 blocks to our Alabama Street factory to update the emergency signage now that we switched insurance carriers. Always adaptable and ready to re-route, you are ready and eager to pause projects to help a fellow Dandelion connect to the printer, find a needed item, scan a document, or answer a question.

A day might start with a daily call to coordinate with the fulfillment team to stay on top of what is currently available. Most of your day is following up on leads to see if Dandelion Chocolate is a good fit and help them understand who we are. You have a quick call with someone organizing an upcoming trade show you’ll attend. You work with the Creative department to make new product suggestions based on what you are seeing in the market. At the end of the week, you track your activities against weekly targets and quarterly goals. You are also sure to keep a close eye on the customer experience, making sure it runs smoothly and making note of any hiccups that could be improved. (read more)
Our ideal candidate is a seasoned, mature barista who is excited to learn and share that passion with others. You develop authentic rapport with guests, can work independently as necessary, and you have the savvy know-how to navigate unexpected situations with confidence (a guest asking for the blowtorch so they can toast their own marshmallow, a Japanese camera crew unexpectedly dropping in, or a regular calling to request someone to hand their hot chocolate to them through their car window as they drive by so they don’t have to park and risk waking their sleeping baby). You aren’t intimidated by a long line of excited people and you love making spaces more efficient in downtime so you’re ready for the busy period. (read more)
We’re seeking a Director of Finance who will make sure we never risk losing the trust of the farmers, customers, or the public through seamless operations, strategic planning, cash management, budgeting, and financial analysis. Your goal isn’t to drive profits and mine every penny. Your goal is to help us build a sustainable business where each team understands how their day-to-day decisions impact long-term financial targets and to develop a sustainable business plan where we produce some of the best chocolate and chocolate experiences in the world. Reporting to the CEO, you’ll work closely with the exec team to make strategic recommendations with the intent to roll up your sleeves and drive change forward as necessary. (read more)
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 email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We do our best to respond to each candidate, typically within 7-14 days.
