Interested in working for us?  We’re hiring!

We are currently accepting resumes and interviewing dynamic and hard-working FOH and BOH professionals to join our team.  In an industry riddled with bad bosses and poor working conditions, we are here to show that excellence in beer, food, and service can go hand-in-hand with great working conditions, good living wages, excellent teamwork, and shared profits through employee-ownership.

Our mission at Democracy Brewing is to recreate the traditional public house, brew the best beer in Boston, and pair it with delicious food, all in combination with two great American ideals: democracy, and owning your own business.  After a year of full time employment, you will be eligible for your own ownership share - an opportunity to become a full equal partner in a democratic workplace.  Becoming a worker-owner at Democracy Brewing includes equal profit sharing with the other worker-owners, and a vote in big decisions that affect the business.

Applicants should possess the desire to learn about food, beer and worker coops.  More important than experience is a desire to improve, put down roots, and be part of our team for the long-term.  We seek career-minded team players, with extra consideration given to those who are bilingual and those who have experience with cooperative businesses.

At Democracy Brewing, our staff comes first.  As an employee, you’ll be working as part of one team focused on providing our guests with the best beer, the best food, and the best hospitality in Boston.
