MatchaBar is a matcha company founded by two brothers in Brooklyn, New York. MatchaBar opened its flagship--the country's first specialty matcha cafe--in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2014. In 4 short years, the team has opened 3 cafes and taken a bottled product to the national market. This summer we launched the Hustle, a sparkling matcha energy drink! All the while, the brothers remain on a simple mission: to bring matcha to the people, sharing better energy with the world around them!

Our Mission -- To Bring Matcha to the People!

Our Values -- Good Things Come to those who Hustle!

Do we believe in Karma? Magic? Santa Claus? We're not quite sure, but we do believe in the hustle. It's the backbone of our business, and is responsible for MatchaBar's very existence! The hustle is about going above and beyond to get the job done. Our community, the MatchaFam, defines itself by just this hard work, passion, and a sense of purpose.

MatchaBar is in need of strong baristas at its Silverlake location as we prepare for the busy fall and winter season.

The MatchaBar Silverlake store is a rad space in the awesome Sunset Blvd. We serve matcha, espresso, and pastries primarily through the walk-up window. Because this cafe is in a busy walking neighborhood and attached to a popular grab-and-go lunch spot, we have a steady flow of mid- to high-volume traffic, particularly during the warmer months. The Silverlake location is a cozy station for rockstar baristas with the ability to multi-task and find synergy with workflows.

MatchaBar is in need of fast-paced, engaging, enthusiastic, and motivated individuals to fulfill opening, closing, and mid shifts. Candidates must have open availability for at least 3 days per week, with full availability on the weekends.
