The Interval at Long Now is adding another barista to the team!

The Interval is the bar, cafe and museum home of The Long Now Foundation. You'll serve customers in a room full of books and elaborate machines, where we also host talks on a wide variety of topics. Customers are inquisitive and will require extra attention due to the uncommon nature of the space. We want someone who is excited about that!
