We're hiring a Bookkeeper!

Curio Spice Co. is looking for an experienced bookkeeper who’s passionate about food and cares about the impact their work has on the world.  We expect the position to be about 15 hours per week in our Cambridge, MA store starting immediately.

Curio Spice Co. is a small, woman-owned business dedicated to finding unique, organic spices around the world and sourcing them in a sustainable way.  We aim to create an intense sensory and educational experience for people who visit our store and to bring them closer to the communities of farmers around the world who cultivate these flavors.  We operate a brick and mortar store and kitchen in Cambridge, MA where we sell pure spices, house spice blends, and spice accessories as well as teach classes.  Our products are sold online, directly to restaurants,  at farmers’ markets, and through other retail stores around the US.

We’re looking for someone who can help us maintain our financial and inventory information in order to provide insight for production and sourcing.  It’s a complex business keeping track of almost a hundred different sources especially keeping in mind growing seasons and the scarcity of many of the unique spices we source -- not to mention the weather and other geopolitical shifts that impact our ability to work around the world.

We’d love to have you as part of our small, passionate team!!
