About Blank Street

At Blank Street, we believe great coffee should be an everyday ritual. With shops across Brooklyn, Manhattan, Boston, DC, London and Manchester, we’re the first-ever brand to offer affordable high-quality coffee.

Blank Street originated in an effort to change the specialty coffee status quo. Starting with small-format shops and continuing with a limited menu and top-of-the-line tech, we’ve always been focused on simplifying the coffee experience. We partner with amazing local vendors and brands, and have some of the best baristas out there on our team. Love coffee and customer service? Keep reading.

Our Values

  • Magic is in the Details: in everything we do we value attention to detail, going the extra mile & thinking about everything that makes a moment meaningful
  • Move as One: We look for inclusive and respectful team members who strive to be the best team player & who over-communicates to ensure understanding
  • “My House is your House” Hospitality: We look for individuals who welcome guests into the cafe the same way they would invite in a friend, who are obsessed with presentation, making sure our cafes are always clean and welcoming & who provide stellar service, even when things are busy or stressful

The Assistant General Manager role supports our General Managers as the guardians of our stores, owning everything from the experience we provide for our customers, to coaching and motivating our teams so that we successfully deliver our mission to serve our customers high-quality food and coffee at affordable prices. Moving as one, you manage the small things to make the magic happen and ensure our home is the home of our customers and our team members too.
