Rogue Coffee Company is a new, local, independently-owned specialty coffee shop coming to uptown Saint John early summer 2017. We are seeking an outgoing, experienced individual for the role of Lead Barista.

The Lead Barista is responsible for the quality of our coffee and hospitality program. He/she serves as a role model to their team with their own hospitality, drink and food preparation, as well as takes significant responsibility for on-the-job education and training of those team members. This is a great role for someone who has already demonstrated a high level of skill and performance in coffee, food and hospitality and wants to help nurture others to do the same.

You will:

  • Ensure that the drinks, food and hospitality consistently meet Rogue Coffee’s high standards by educating, coaching and developing new and current team members

  • Regularly taste coffee drinks made by baristas at Rogue to ensure consistently high quality that meets our standards
  • Offer positive and/or constructive feedback to team members on the quality and consistency of drink preparation, food preparation, cleanliness, professionalism, and customer service
  • Be knowledgeable on each rotation of coffee offerings through cuppings and coordination with the Manager
  • Be knowledgeable on each food offering through coordination with the Manager
  • Release new coffee offerings, working with the manager to decide when new offerings will be put on bar and then educate your team about them
  • Organize and lead public, coffee-related events to reach out to new guests and engage existing guests to have a stronger connection to your coffee shop

You are:

  • Someone who enthusiastically shares your knowledge and passion with others and thrives in helping groups of others learn, especially when ‘geeking out’ on coffee and food
  • A role model for others who is a shining example of our coffee and food quality and hospitality standards in how he/she approaches preparation and serving our guests
  • A fantastic teacher who loves coaching others and is patient and adaptive in helping learners of different styles and backgrounds succeed
  • A superb and direct communicator who imparts information to individuals or large groups effectively and delivers constructive feedback in a way that is effective and kind
  • Professional and reliable – your Manager and teammates can always depend on you and get a timely response or assistance
  • Someone who thrives in a fast-paced work environment and is able to keep a calm demeanour during periods of high volume
  • Excited to grow as a leader by learning and developing yourself in coffee knowledge and practice, people development, and store operations
  • Physically able to stand and walk for up to 4 hours without a break, bend and stoop to grasp objects, climb ladders, and lift loads up to 30 lbs. unassisted

You have:

  • 6+ months working in a specialty coffee retail environment
  • Strong technical barista skills in all areas of drink preparation (i.e. brewing, espresso, milk)
  • Basic math and computer skills
