Job description

When MadTree sprouted in 2013, we were driven to craft great beer - but more importantly - to build something bigger than ourselves. Since the beginning, we have cared deeply about creating meaningful connections with our communities. We embrace our name MadTree and work to celebrate and protect nature, while reducing our impact on the environment. We are proud members of 1% for the Planet, with a commitment to donate 1% of our sales to non-profits focused on environmental sustainability.

First, let’s state the obvious - we make great beer (and canned cocktails), and it keeps getting better. And we’ve got the medals to prove it. We operate one of the most successful taprooms in the region, have one of the hottest new restaurants in the city, and are one of the largest beer producers in the state of Ohio. COVID-19 didn’t slow us down and we’ve continued to push our growth strategy through the uncertainty.

We continue to invest in and build a team of talented folks who are taking this company to the next level. We've continued our push into hospitality with the opening of our Alcove restaurant this spring in the heart of OTR. We continue to grow, evolve, and invest in our company and community. And we have one hell of a good time in the process. Buckle up!

You're a positive motivator that knows how to lead and connect teams to achieve results. You're an adaptable critical thinker that receives feedback openly and sees it as an opportunity to be better. You're constantly problem-solving, thinking ahead, and proactively challenging yourself and others to make a positive impact in their roles and for the planet. You actively leverage robust support systems in the organization to jump over hurdles on your way to the finish line. These things energize and propel you to make MadTree even better.

MadTree is committed to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce that inspires madness while being rooted in purpose.
