The Twisted Thistle Apothicaire’s are traditional medicinal herbal teas and gift shops. We source bulk herbs from a number of locations and package them (individually or as blends) into our own packaging – this is where you come in!

This is a bit of a multifaceted job that requires two distinct temperaments and strengths:


  1. The ability to focus on a repetitive task (like packing) for extended periods of time, while keeping a self-directed pace, and

  2. A mind which can actively assess and organize, which demands precision and an ability to catch mistakes and rectify them.

The first strength refers to the aspect of the job which includes the packing of herbs into bags, and sealing and labeling the bags, as well as cleaning and organizing the packing area.

Situations where the second strength comes in handy include comparing batches of bulk herbs to find inconsistencies, assessing stock levels for ordering bulk herbs on a monthly basis, keeping an eye on labeling and barcoding to ensure accuracy, and controlling proper stock rotation for the sake of freshness.

A large part of the job is tedious (and thus is not a good match if you're looking for a creative or people-focused job) however accuracy is key, so clear attention to detail is a must!  Also, we take the time to train effectively so the right person can succeed quickly and easily (and move up the pay scale as quickly as possible!) We begin by training for the packing/labeling/stock-rotation/cleaning part of the job, and expand into other responsibilities within a month or two.

Job Responsibilities:


  • Firstly, this is a 3-4 day/week position with the possibility of a 5th day


    • 6-8 hours a day of packing while adhering to food safety standards, and labeling and sealing.



  • Additional tasks/responsibilities which fit into these 3-4 days:


    • Restocking and Stock Rotation

    • Cleaning Tea/Kitchenette area and floor of back room

    • Cleaning the Packing Area

    • Taking out the recycling and your trash from the back room and packing area

    • Making Blends

    • Deep clean of the back room (1/month)

    • General Merchandise Receiving & Allocating

    • Inventory Control/Count



These are other tasks that, in time, you will learn and may become part of your responsibilities:


  • Stock Taking all bulk herbs (1/month)

  • Placing Bulk Herb Orders (1/month)

  • Receiving Bulk Herb Order into stock and combining stock.

  • Stock taking all packing supplies and stationary

  • Preparing weekly inventory transfer

The qualifications/requirements for the job are more focused on temperament than work history:


  • Efficient, self-motivated, and self-directing

  • Enjoy repetitive tasks

  • Happy to do cleaning tasks and enjoys keeping a tidy workspace

  • Able to follow instructions and remember them

  • Able to take charge when needed

  • Eye for detail and values precision

  • Consistent

  • Trustworthy

  • Positive Attitude 

Ultimately, this job lends itself to someone who can find pleasure in repetitive tasks (podcasts/music/audiobooks allowed!) while offering a clear and accurate attention to detail!

If that sounds like you, we would love to hear from you soon!

About Us

Super Body Fuel is a small, self-funded food manufacturing startup in San Francisco’s industrial Dogpatch neighborhood. We make it easy for people to take control of their health and achieve their ideal diet, regardless of time, money, or dietary restrictions. That is, we make nutritionally complete, powdered meals available in diet plans ranging from ketogenic to high-protein. Our products are engineered for optimal nutrition and the widest possible accessibility. That means they are not only affordable and tasty, but also vegan, hypoallergenic, and free of artificial sweeteners and added sugar.

We’ve been growing organically for the past few years, without the aid of an advertising budget or venture capital (though we did get some nice coverage in The New York Times and Forbes!). Now we’re looking for a Production Assistant to help us take the next step in scaling our business and bringing optimal nutrition to the world.

About the Job

As a production assistant, you’ll be responsible for turning ingredients into finished products. This includes measuring and mixing ingredients, packaging products, and keeping batch records, as well as cleaning and maintaining the manufacturing facility and equipment. Your focus is on meeting quality standards, following safety procedures, and producing quickly and consistently enough that our customers never have to wait for an order. You’ll work alongside one other production assistant, as well as the warehouse manager, who is responsible for supplying you with ingredients, and the shipping manager, who is responsible for shipping out products to customers.

In this role, you’ll be working part-time or full-time at $16-18/hour at our Dogpatch facility. Opportunities for more hours, more pay, and advancement to management or marketing roles may become available as our company grows.

About You

You like working with your hands and easily slip into a meditative flow state while doing repetitive tasks. You have an eye for detail and notice when an ingredient measurement is off or a bin has not been thoroughly washed. More importantly, you care about quality and take the time to correct a problem even when it’s not convenient. You are always eager to help out your team and to be the kind of person they look forward to working with each day. You have no problem remembering all of our operating procedures or asking questions when you aren’t sure what to do. And at the end of the day, you feel genuine satisfaction looking over a shelf full of finished product and a spotless workspace with everything in its place.

Previous kitchen experience is a plus. Good writing skills are a must for future advancement opportunities.

Responsibilities


  • Produce the required number of batches every week.

  • Clean and maintain manufacturing facility and equipment.

  • Follow operating procedures to ensure health, safety and quality.

  • Keep detailed batch records, including measurement confirmations.

  • Measure ingredients quickly and accurately, within 1 gram or less.

  • Restock ingredients from bags weighing up to 55 lbs.

Requirements


  • You care about health and nutrition.

  • You are willing and available to work one to four days a week.

  • You are able to pass a California Food Handler Certification test.

  • You have the dexterity to measure quickly and precisely.

  • You have the stamina to stand for several hours.

  • You have the strength to lift and carry 55 lbs.

  • You easily remember rules and procedures.

  • You enjoy organizing and cleaning up.

  • You manage your time efficiently.

How to Apply

Super Body Fuel is growing and we are looking for employees who want to grow with us and make a difference in the world. If you are interested, please send us your resume along with a few sentences telling us about the food that you eat (or don’t eat, if that’s more interesting!). We like people who really care about what they do, so tell us what inspires you to join our team.
