Full Time Assistant Manager Postition 

About Us:

7ate9 Bakery is a locally owned café and bakery specializing in cheesecake. We are woman-owned, minority-owned, queer-owned. We are neighborhood people who believe in building community and supporting local entrepreneurs. We believe in harnessing the talents and creativity of our team members. You can find us at 199C Highland Ave in Somerville.

We are opening multiple new stores over the next year and are looking for people who want to grow with us and help shape our vision. This position will grow into a higher management position. Our staff don’t just work here, they help build our business.

About Position: We are a small team consisting of only 4 front of house staff. In this sense, the Assistant Manager position does not have the same requirements as in other, larger establishments. The Front of House Assistant Manager is responsible for all FOH service, operations, and trainings, in addition to helping on the floor. We believe all positions should be learning positions. We believe boredom is painful. All staff members receive weekly or bi-weekly trainings to ensure growth and learning opportunities. We like to gauge the interest of all staff (be it in marketing, accounting, customer service, event management, small business development, etc) and provide a path for staff to grow into these roles within our company. We are a team of fun, hard-working people, who want to build something big together.
