Who We Are & Who We Serve
The American Society of Baking (ASB) is celebrating 100 years of serving the baking industry. For a century, we’ve fostered a full range of opportunities in continuing education and professional development dedicated to individuals in grain-based foods. Our network of bakers, engineers, service providers, food technologists and equipment/ingredient suppliers has stood the test of time – proving to be an invaluable resource to baked goods manufacturers of all sizes and facilitating growth of our $87-billion-dollar industry.
Grain-based food production employs more than 330,000 hard-working Americans at more than 10,000 commercial baking facilities and high-volume retail bakeries. That’s why we make it our duty to advance baking knowledge and innovation to our members and the industry at large. With our members’ interest always at heart, ASB is proud to celebrate 100 years of service.
We are a small staff and supportive teammates; everyone pitches in, and we all truly enjoy working with one another. We have high expectations of each other and thrive in an environment centered around excellence and professionalism. We believe in flexibility and autonomy, and our culture is ambitious, positive, and results oriented.
We pride ourselves on being a flexible workplace that trusts our team members to do high quality work in a timely manner. We love our members and care about our team and their work life balance too. Professional development is an expectation of doing the job well.
Our staff has been fully remote since 2010 and we’ve recently invested in technology to better support collaboration and efficiency for our team members and the committees we serve. Although the position is fully remote, we love to gather as a team. Our new virtual HQ is in Carmel, Ind., a multi-cultural town with a hip city vibe north of Indianapolis.
ASB seeks to model the diversity of the members we serve. As such, we strongly urge applications from all interested people without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, disability status, genetics, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
Salary & Benefits
We recognize pay is an important reason why we choose to work. Typically, in membership organizations, it is not the only or primary reason for our career choice but that shouldn’t negate the importance of fair compensation.
All positions are reviewed and aligned with the Position Category Matrix based on skills required to perform the role, years of experience, designations/certifications, and decision-making authority within the organization.
Additionally, we consider total compensation including a balance of salary plus benefits, including paid time off and professional development opportunities.
