New York City

Gotan is a cafe that strives to truly embrace their idea of what a cafe in New York City should be- an establishment that merges an exceptional coffee program with an incredible dining experience, where you go as much for the coffee as you do the food. It’s not the easiest thing to pull off when paired with wonderfully warm service and hospitality, but it is what they feel is incredibly rewarding. If this sounds exciting to you, apply right now!


Gotan is looking for two experienced baristas to fill full-time positions for their new CHELSEA location. Experience in specialty coffee is preferred. The right candidate should be passionate about coffee and be a kind and welcoming person.

Gotan works with Counter Culture and they constantly rotate through their coffee lineup to keep things interesting. They also offer paid classes through their educational program at their NYC training lab! More perks are free shift meals and all the coffee you can drink.


  • Previous barista experience preferred (1-2 years)

  • Proficiency in latte art

  • Knowledge of different brewing methods

  • A friendly attitude

  • A strong desire to continue learning about coffee (and the larger coffee community)

  • Always growing your palate and sharpening your skills as a barista

  • Experience in a very fast-paced, high volume environment without sacrificing great service. You’re at your best and having fun when the pressure is on!


Salary based on experience (a food handler’s certificate gets you bonus points!)
