Wait, what?

Look, it's pretty simple. We have 600+ amazing IT humans in our space that LOVE cocktails. We also have a roof with an amazing view. Naturally, we combined the two and created a match made in heaven - Puzl CoCafé. However, we need someone to make Puzl CoCafé feel like a through community & party space - a bartender who not only makes amazing cocktails, but also knows how to make people feel good!

Who are you people!?

Ah, right! We should probably explain. In short, we're a group of young humans who are building IT-only coworking spaces for IT humans across CEE. So far, we've built 3 of them in Sofia, Bulgaria and our next step is to create an awesome cafe / bar for our community. It's a mind-blowing location with an awesome Vitosha mountain view. Trust us, you'll love it.

About the role

This is where YOU come in! We are looking for an experienced bartender who understands the relativity between a delicious cocktail and having a really nice time among team mates or friends, or just networking. You will work on our Puzl CoCafé and you will be the reason everyone comes back to this place. You'll be responsible for everything behind the bar -  preparing gorgeous alcoholic and non alcoholic cocktails, pouring some fresh juices, lemonades and any other soft drinks. You'll communicate on a daily basis with our members or guests and help them have an amazing experience.
