We’re a “safety first” culture driven by a zero defect and zero waste mentality set out to enrich the lives of pets everywhere. Over 100 years in existence, we’ve grown our passionate Purina Family as we’ve grown the breadth of our business. As a Quality Assurance Team Leader, you’ll join our factory in Davenport, Iowa which is home to our largest manufacturing facility since 1927. Originally producing cereal, the factory became a pet food-only manufacturer in the late ‘90’s and as the largest pet food manufacturing facility in the U.S., it carefully produces, packages and ships several varieties of our Dog Chow®, Puppy Chow®, Alpo®, Beneful®, Nestlé Purina ONE®, Cat Chow®, Kitten Chow®, Friskies® and Kit N Kaboodle® brands.

As a Quality Assurance Team Leader, you will perform a variety of tasks. You will manage daily Q.A. operations and processes to ensure compliance with mandatory standards and principles. You will also facilitate root cause analysis and drive continuous improvement within the factory and laboratory processes. You will continue to build competency of the Q.A. team both within the department and throughout the factory.

Primary Responsibilities:

Promote open communication between all factory functions

Maintain lab personal schedule which includes annual planning and maintenance of department vacation/OT policies

Assure compliance to the chemical hygiene plan and good laboratory practices guideline

Follow-up as needed on missing checks or non-compliance issues

Participate in the daily sensory panels

Review daily compliance reports and work with process owners and operators on reducing variation and improving compliance on selected attributes

Basic Qualifications:


BS/BA degree in food science, food microbiology, biology, or related technical field OR a high school diploma with 3 years of relevant food industry experience

It is our business imperative to remain a very inclusive workplace.

To our veterans and separated service members, you're at the forefront of our minds as we recruit top talent to join Nestlé Purina. The skills you've gained while serving our country, such as flexibility, agility, and leadership, are much like the skills that will make you successful in this role. We hope you'll consider sharing in our mission--you'll join a cohort of others who have chosen to call Nestlé Purina home.

The Nestlé Companies are equal employment and affirmative action employers and look for diversity in qualified candidates for employment.
