Food Production Associate | Plant-Based Company | Direct-Hire

Boulder, CO

Posted July 27, 2022

Full-time, Permanent, 1st and 2nd Shift

Are you passionate about sustainability, using products that are eco-friendly and clean, organic food?

Then you will definitely be interested in working for this plant-based meat company! They have multiple Food Production Associate openings on their team. No previous food production experience is necessary!

These are direct-hire positions so you will be part of the permanent team on Day 1, and they have full-time hours on both the 1st and 2nd shift.

And this not your typical food production job. This company cares about their employees and offers a ton of really cool job perks.

Here’s how this Food Production job is totally different.

  • They’re passionate about the environment.

The products they make are entirely out of mushrooms!

This company is dedicated to reducing water and resources that are normally used for meat products. Their aim is to create a product that is both nutritious and has a positive impact on the environment. So you can feel good knowing that the work you do will contribute to a greener climate.

  • The perks are awesome.

Free snacks, free espresso (in-house espresso machine on site), and a Taco Truck visits twice per week.

They’ll buy you a pair of work boots and make sure you have these before your first work day.

“Fungi Fridays” where you can sample all of their products

And they offer an extensive benefits package that is constantly evolving to fit the needs of their employees.

  • You’ll be given a full on-site tour during your interview.

They want to make sure that you get the full scope of the work environment and team before saying “yes” to a job offer.

And the workspace is really cool. They use huge vats to create their product just like the ones used to brew beer. If you’ve ever visited a brewery, you've probably seen these kinds of steel tanks.

  • There are opportunities to grow with the company.

They will train you to become an expert in your role, and if there are positions within the company that you’re interested in, they will train you.

This is a great opportunity to join a growing, innovative company.
