Join Our Team

Oaktown Spice Shop opened in December 2011 in the Lake Merritt neighborhood of Oakland. Every day since then, we have been dedicated to selling only the freshest and highest quality spices. We help people with everyday cooking and baking needs while also catering to some of the Bay Area's top chefs and bartenders.

Whether you're cooking at work or making cocktails for a dinner party at your home, we aim to enhance your experience through our expertise and service.

We opened our second retail shop location in Albany in November 2017, and we opened our third shop in the Castro Valley Marketplace in August 2020.

It's important to us to be good employers and provide good jobs. We offer medical and dental benefits as well as paid time off to our full-time employees. We have a matching retirement savings plan available to all our permanent hires. 

We are an equal opportunity employer. Applicants are considered for positions without regard to veteran status, uniformed service member status, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, physical or mental disability, genetic information or any other category protected by applicable federal, state, or local laws.
