Join us!

It’s a big day here, as we’re officially hiring for Bi-Rite Market Divisadero, Bi-Rite Market 18th Street and Bi-Rite Creamery! Please take a moment to read a bit about what we’re looking for–information about how to apply is at the bottom of this posting.

Why do I want to work for Bi-Rite?

We’re opening a second Market in San Francisco at the corner of Divisadero and Hayes, and we need passionate, hardworking, detail-oriented individuals who love food and feeding others. Both of our Markets (and our Creamery) are looking to fill a variety of positions including butchers, cooks, deli servers, grocery stockers and more.

Bi-Rite is a learning community, with endless opportunity for on-the-job training and education about food and service. Our unique staff culture and generous benefits package sets us apart from other food businesses. We offer a 20% discount on purchases throughout the store, a medical and dental plan after 90 days, a meal with your shift, a 401K retirement plan after one year of employment, access to 18 Reasons classes and the opportunity for career advancement.

Just like Bi-Rite Market on 18th Street, which has been in the Mogannam family for 50 years, Bi-Rite Divisadero will serve its neighborhood and evolve over time to develop its own identity. We’re looking to hire a staff that wants to invest in building relationships in our new neighborhood. This is a great opportunity for anyone who loves a once in a lifetime challenge.

What’s Bi-Rite Market Divisadero going to be like? When is it opening?

Like Bi-Rite Market 18th Street, Bi-Rite Market Divisadero will be a one-stop-shop neighborhood market with a full selection of farm-direct produce, groceries, fresh meat & fish, prepared foods, a full-service butcher and deli counter, wine and spirits, a health and beauty section and more. It’s slightly bigger than 18th Street, allowing for the addition of an ice cream shop inside the Market as well as a full-service cheese counter.  The new market is scheduled to open in early March 2013.

What positions are available?

We are looking for cashiers, ice cream scoopers, deli servers, service butchers, cooks, produce and grocery stockers, supervisors and a visual merchandising assistant. Please visit for an up-to-date list. We will have many open positions at both market locations, as well as the Creamery, to accommodate this exciting expansion.

When will I start?

It depends on the position. Most staff will start working at Divisadero two weeks before the store opens. Divisadero is scheduled to open around the first week of March.

Will I be able to advance from one position to another?


I’m interested, how do I apply?

To apply, please visit, and search for Bi-Rite Market to find the available positions, and upload a cover letter and resume.

    Hi there, I am so happy that you are opening a 2nd store. I LOVE BiRite. I lived on 17th and Guerrero at the time when Bi-Rite was transitioning into its healthy, gourmet, yumminess. After a crazy day at work it always calming to to enter Bi-Rite and have the beautiful produce, friendly staff and enlivening environment spark creative ideas for dinner. Currently I am looking for work in a loving community environment that will support my passion for cooking, eating and teaching people about healthy, nurturing food. I am excited that you have new openings and hope that I will be part of your expanded work family.

    I am looking forward to shopping in the new space and hopefully work in it, Julie

    My name is Alyson Lewis. I’ve applied on for a cashier position at the new or existing market. I had a lovely experience visiting the market last time I was in San Francisco in October of last year. I bought amazing kiwi berries, my favorite ginger ale, cheeses, and produce.
    I worked in South Florida at a small grocery store as a cashier for the last 9 months before moving to where I am now at a 25 acre Natural Agriculture farm outside of Santa Cruz. Upon completing this volunteer program (which has been enlightening and exciting…) I am moving to San Francisco with an open heart and lots of energy!
    I am looking forward to hearing back from you all, and will most certainly be shopping here.
    Alyson Lewis
