JJ Bean exists to honour people through great coffee, service, food, and spaces. We believe that everyone who takes part in the journey of coffee—from farmers to baristas—deserves to be fairly rewarded for their work.

We are committed to compensating our staff well above industry standards. Our “levels” system gives all of our café staff the opportunity to increase their wages as they improve their barista skills and coffee knowledge.

In addition to hourly wages, we offer quarterly and yearly bonuses, medical benefits, and generous staff discounts. After one year of employment, all employees are eligible for a wellness plan that enables them to pay for fitness, education, and general wellness courses. Also after one year employees are eligible to buy into the company as shareholders.

JJ Bean is Inspired Workplace Certified

In 2018, we were certified by Inspired Workplace. Our employees feel overwhelmingly safe and respected, believe very strongly in our values and products, and strongly recommend JJ Bean as a work place to others.


Current Openings

We’re always looking for coffee-loving, people-oriented baristas and bakers to join our retail cafes.

No experience required: we train successful candidates and promote from within. We look for keen, motivated learners who love people and coffee and bring a positive attitude to each day. An open/flexible availability is valuable. Being a people-oriented company, applications delivered in person to your chosen store(s) usually receive priority. But you can also apply using the form below to submit your resume.
