  • You learn quickly and are able to adapt to Maman’s unique culture
  • Smart, no ego, upbeat, friendly, & efficiency oriented
  • Flexible schedule that will include weekends, holidays, and special events
  • If we get stuck in an elevator together, you’ll crack a joke and we’ll laugh along the way

What's in it for you:

  • Join a fast-growing company committed not just to serving the best cookies & coffees but to building a national brand
  • Competitive salary, healthcare, & sweet perks for always going the extra mile and living our values

Keep in mind that Maman is growing and developing everyday. We all do a little bit of everything & like to roll our sleeves up and get our hands dirty to help a colleague out.

We are looking for awesome, hard-working people that are all about creating the most memorable experience for every single Maman customer.
