Job Description :
About UsDandelion Chocolate is a bean-to-bar chocolate factory in San Francisco’s Mission District. We make chocolate from only two ingredients, cocoa beans and cane sugar, and travel to origins as often as we can to build good, trusting relationships with the producers who grow and ferment the beans we buy. We strive to make some of the best chocolate in the world, and now we’re looking for a Head Chocolatier to lead the team that turns our chocolate into handcrafted, single-origin confections.About the JobWe are constantly testing to improve our process and flavor, developing our teams, and creating new and innovative treats. You will supervise and plan operations and manage our team of chocolatiers. You’ll report to the CEO and work closely with other managers (Chocolate Production, Creative, Product, Operations, Packaging, Flavor, and Quality.) You’ll be responsible for planning and executing our confections production to meet the highest quality standards.While there’s no such thing as a typical day, you may start your morning by meeting with your team to talk through the week’s goals and daily schedule. After the team huddle, you meet with one of your chocolatiers for your weekly 1-1. They mention that they have an idea for a more efficient way to package the bonbons, so you set aside some time for them to test prototypes later in the week. Just as you’re due to start a meeting with our Product Manager, the tempering machine stops working. With a text to reschedule, you drop everything to focus all of your attention on working with our mechanic to fix the machine. The next hour has you delegating troubleshooting tasks to the team, making phone calls to the Mechanic, a minor chocolate spill, and finally, a fixed machine. After lunch, you plan out the newest team member’s training and onboarding schedule and send a status update on an ongoing R&D project. You finish the day with some admin time where you outline your plans for developing your team, troubleshoot a packaging issue, and experimenting with concepts for the upcoming seasonal bonbon line. At the end of the day, you are sure to save some time to celebrate your newest team member’s birthday with ice cream from their favorite shop.About YouYou are always planning ahead to anticipate the needs of your team and what they will need to hit the team’s production goals. When speed bumps come along, you roll with it. You’re known for your positive, team-oriented, can-do attitude and leadership. People seek you out as someone who listens and helps problem-solve any situation. Your commitment to quality is obvious and you never cut corners or compromise on our standards. You are excited to work closely with a tight-knit team and make strong relationships with the managers across the entire organization. You know how to strike a balance between working with your team on the floor and taking care of all administrative and planning tasks. You’ll be measured by your ability to maintain a successful team and hit goals, deadlines, and flavor and quality metrics.Responsibilities
