Pastry Assistant

 

Starting Pay: $17/hour (plus tips)

 

Poeme Macarons is a women-owned, gourmet French macaron shop, opening our first retail storefront in Fort Collins on 3/19! We specialize in all-natural, uniquely-crafted French macarons in world-inspired flavors, and make a large variety of vegan macaron flavors as well. Our products are naturally gluten-free, but do contain nuts (almonds).

 

 

We are looking for motivated, detail-oriented pastry assistants to help the Head Chef with making our large menu of flavors at the new storefront! Poeme Macarons crafts a unique macaron that’s creamier and less sweet than your typical macaron, and we make all of our fillings from scratch (often using multiple fillings per macaron) to create a truly “gourmet” experience. Our shells are naturally-colored and flavored and we believe in creating a beautiful but non-artificial product!

 

We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated, and eager-to-learn candidates that are looking to help Poeme Macarons grow! Previous baking experience is required, but previous commercial bakery or macaron-making experience is not necessary (but is a plus!). We are willing to train the right candidate. Detail-oriented precision is required for these “diva” macarons. Working and communicating well as a team is very important. Having a food safety certification is also preferable.

 

A lot of things can go wrong when making macarons, so it is important that you are able to quickly recognize potential problems and provide adequate, quick-thinking solutions. Experience with previous French pastry techniques and the precision required for French pastry is a huge asset. Quick-learners and creative-thinkers are desired for this position. With the large range of flavors we will create each day, it is also essential to have good multi-tasking abilities.

 

Daily activities can include:

 

-prepping and measuring dry ingredients

-prepping fillings (pastry creams, fruit curds, jams, ganache, edible cookie dough/cake batter, a variety of buttercreams, vegan fillings, etc.)

-making meringue

-piping macaron shells

-baking macarons

-pairing and filling macarons with precision

-tasting and accurately adjusting fillings/macarons and ingredients to match Poeme Macarons standards

-communicating effectively with team members about inventory and needs

-assisting in new flavor creations

-working with vegan macaron shells and fillings and understanding the importance of no cross-contamination

-keeping your workspace neat, orderly, and clean

-cleaning and sanitizing the kitchen

-lifting up to 25 lbs

-eating macarons!

 

Hours:

We are looking for candidates that can ideally work 30-35 hours a week. This position has room for huge potential growth into full-time positions (with benefits) as Poeme Macarons grows in the next 6-12 months. Weekend availability is preferable. Generally, shifts will not start before 8am.

 

Previous Experience:

1-2 years commercial bakery experience (preferrable)
