AeroFarms is transforming agriculture and redefining the industry's supply chain. Our state-of-the-art technology uses aeroponics and LEDs to create a totally protected growing environment that is close to the end user, thereby minimizing transportation miles. We grow a variety of baby greens that are harvested at their peak for optimal flavor and nutritional value. Fully traceable from farm to fork, our leafy greens are grown from non-GMO seeds.
AeroFarms recently completed a state-of-the-art facility in Newark, NJ, perfectly poised to serve the NY Metro area. The facility is the world's largest indoor vertical farm for leafy greens. To support substantial interest from national retailers, AeroFarms also plans a significant scaling of our business, including facilities in other cities and countries in the near future. The company is dedicated to enabling local production at a commercial scale in markets throughout the world.
The ideal candidate has 10-15 years of experience in regulatory compliance for food safety and quality assurance and is comfortable providing leadership to distributed teams of FSQA professionals. Experience in the perishable products (growing, packaging and shipping) industry is a plus. You will report directly to the Chief Operations Officer and will have a close working relationship with the Director of Research & Development.
The position requires an individual who is very adept at focusing both externally (e.g. how is the regulatory market evolving) as well as internally (e.g. driving the company to meet evolving expectations in a comprehensive & efficient manner) to ensure full compliance with requirements.
B.S. in Food Science, Engineering, or related field of study. Master's preferred.
