Sr Packaging Engineer (Sr Packaging Scientist)

Sr Packaging Engineer (Sr Packaging Scientist)

 

We’re a leader in the pet care industry, which means we’re not only ahead in volume, profit and market share, but our associates dare to Stand Taller. We innovate new products, impart new agilities into existing processes, constantly advance pet nutrition, and always pay it forward in the form of service for our communities and families. Are you up for the dare?

 

This position is not eligible for Visa Sponsorship.

 

 

For more than 80 years, we’ve led the charge in revolutionizing pet food production and its ability to enrich the lives of pets everywhere. By 1956, through innovative engineering, we literally reshaped pet care, introducing Dog Chow® as the first extruded dry food. We’re still at it today, with Tidy Cats®, the lightweight cat litter champion of the world and Pro Plan Bright Mind®, a breakthrough formula with enhanced botanical oils shown to promote alertness and mental sharpness in aging dogs. Such leadership requires constant innovation and renovation, which is so often rooted in engineering.

 

As a Sr. Scientist Packaging, you’ll play a pivotal role in driving innovation and delivering cutting-edge packaging materials and functional solutions, with a specific focus on flexible barrier packaging. Drawing upon your advanced and specialized knowledge, you’ll be instrumental in creating differentiating technologies that push the boundaries of packaging excellence. With your professional judgment and expertise, you will navigate projects with minimal supervision, ensuring the successful accomplishment of objectives. Join our dynamic team and contribute to shaping the future of packaging innovation.

  • Drive innovation by developing new packages, materials, and packaging concepts
  • Cultivate and maintain relationships with global technology leaders in barrier packaging materials and technologies, translating opportunities into competitive packaging solutions
  • Demonstrate technical leadership in pet food packaging, identifying, and implementing technology to enhance manufacturing performance
  • Effectively communicate findings through oral presentations and timely written technical documentation and reports
