Job Description

Koneko, a Japanese Cat Café on the LES is seeking a skilled, hard-working barista for our unique café. This position is full time.

Upon opening Koneko was featured in the NY Times Style section: https://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/08/fashion/at-a-cat-cafe-sipping-and-purring.html

We have also recently been featured on Animal Planet, MTV, Daily Beast, Buzzfeed, et al.

We are looking for a dedicated, friendly and experienced barista. We serve Stumptown coffee and a variety of teas from In Pursuit of Tea. Our cafe uses a La Marzocco Linea, 2-group head manual espresso machine.

Please have a minimum of one year’s experience in the cafe industry. Experience with third-wave coffee and a La Marzocco (or equivalent manual machine) is highly preferred. This position calls for food prep and service — experience working with food is also preferred.

The ideal candidate will have strong customer service skills, a love of animals (specifically cats!), display leadership skills, and be calm under pressure. We are only interested in those who check their egos at the door and are excited to work alongside a similarly driven and hardworking team.

This position is compensated hourly and would start immediately.
