We are Bread SRSLY, makers of wildly nourishing, SERIOUSLY delicious, gluten-free and vegan sourdough bread in Oakland, CA. Our mission is to reunite people with sourdough when they thought good bread was off the table. We bake thousands of loaves of bread each week, ship them all over the US to eager gluten-free eaters, and sell them locally at natural foods stores up and down the West Coast. We value organic ingredients, sustainable business practices, livable wages, fun in the workplace, and meaningful relationships with our staff, our vendors and our customers.

The right candidate will be energized by the bustle of the day, the customer questions, the friendships and camaraderie that come with working alongside other makers (not to mention the edible perks!).
