CAREERS AT GNOSIS

ABOUT US
Gnosis Chocolate is employee-owned, debt-free, and our growth is driven by word-of mouth. Founded in 2008, we were one of the very first low-glycemic, functional raw chocolate companies in the world, and now one of the largest. Our handcrafted products - now sold in hundreds of stores worldwide - are certified organic, vegan, kosher, and free of GMO, gluten, soy, dairy, and refined sugar. But Gnosis Chocolate is more than a chocolate company! We are widely recognized for the quality and integrity of our customer service, direct sourcing & community involvement, and our conscious, green, transparent business practices.

THE OPPORTUNITY 
Members of Team Gnosis are passionate, hard-working collaborators who thrive in a high-energy, fast-paced environment. As in every grassroots company, the ability to "wear many hats" and the affinity for change and growth are key! There's immense opportunity for ambitious, self-motivated individuals with an appetite for challenge.

If you have a sincere commitment to environmental and societal issues, and a strong desire to grow with a rapidly-expanding, forward-thinking, you will love working with us!  If you're looking for more than a job - but rather for an opportunity to explore your full potential in an exciting career in a forward-thinking company - you've found it. If you're proactive, passionate, authentic, ambitious, dedicated and driven - you'll fit right in! In this well-established yet non-corporate healthy chocolate company, intrapreneurialism is rewarded with profit sharing, and with the freedom to create and lead.

Our office is 3 minutes from the Broadway subway stop in Astoria, and our kitchen is 3 minutes from the Queensboro Plaza stop in Long Island City.
