Engineering Management Development Associate
It’s at your very core as an engineering brain – your ability to think in ways most can’t, and tackle the challenges most won’t. It’s people like you who have joined our Purina family at all career levels and developed Tidy Cats Lightweight®, the cat litter champion of the world. People like you who first engineered extruded dry dog food and built patented, customized machinery in each of our factories.
Joining Nestlé Purina as a Management Development Engineer Associate means you're joining our factory family to play a key role in leading and executing capital projects that impact the larger business. You’ll experience information systems, quality assurance, supply chain, accounting, human resources, production, R&D engineering and operations performance to understand how each of these areas collaborate with the engineering management work that you’ll do. Following from there, you’ll experience a unique breadth of work within your functional area, and focus on becoming a domain expert at the factory you’re assigned to.
Why engineering with us versus somewhere else? Taking the engineering path of our Management Development Associate is a full-time position that puts you on the fast track to management on the manufacturing side of our business. You are the future leader.
