Salt & Straw is a small batch, handmade ice cream company based in Portland, Oregon. We created this company because we love to create great neighborhoods places, which means supporting local artisans, contributing to local PTAs and taking care of our team. We take a lot of pride that our ice cream is a reflection of the local community, so our entire menu was written using local cream and collaborating with a cast of farmers, chefs, cheese-makers, brewers, and butchers from all over Oregon.

Our kitchen is a crazy fun combination of high end pastry making and lean-focused manufacturing. Our head chef, Tyler Malek, has won multiple awards in the food industry including Forbes 30 Under 30, and Eater’s Young Guns Finalists. On top of that, our kitchen team is constantly working with the best chefs in the world for inspiration, training, and collaboration. Our kitchen team makes everything from scratch and puts incredibly innovative passion behind their work resulting in one of the most dynamic pastry kitchens to work for in the country.

For this position, Our support team is made up of some of our hardest working team members in the kitchen. This team is constantly working/lifting/organizing in a really cold freezer to help setup our production team and shop teams for success. While self-managing your daily schedule, it is also necessary to be constantly checking in with the leaders on the production floor and be trained on all levels of our kitchen in case help is needed. These team members are basically the sub-zero ninjas of our company.
