Product Development Director

Company: Impossible Foods
Location: Redwood City
Posted on: February 20, 2021

Job Description:

Impossible Foods is addressing the most catastrophic threats facing humanity: climate change and biodiversity collapse. A global transition to a plant-based food system will turn back the clock on atmospheric CO2 levels, restore natural ecosystems and reverse meltdown in wildlife biomass. The easiest -- if not only -- way to make our civilization sustainable is to eliminate livestock, the most dangerous technology on Earth. But humans won't give up meat. So we need to make meat better -- more delicious and more nutritious, without animals as the underlying production technology. That means that making meat sustainably is the most important and urgent problem for the global scientific community. Impossible Foods' mission is to completely replace the use of animals as a food-production technology by offering consumers everything they currently value about animal products -- and making products that are vastly superior to their animal analogues. To do this, we are taking a revolutionary scientific and market-based approach. We are inventing efficient, sustainable ways to transform ingredients from plants into meat, fish and dairy foods that deliver all the pleasures and nutritional benefits consumers demand, without the destructive environmental or public health impact. Our world-class R&D team has been building the know-how and technology platform to produce meat, fish and dairy foods from plants. Impossible Foods is experiencing rapid growth and is resolutely committed to leading all aspects of the plant-based food revolution-from discovery to commercial production. The only thing that will separate Impossible Foods from success and failure is our ability to recruit more world-class experts. Want to join? Check out the job opening and requirements below: You Will:

  • Lead a team of up to 35 people responsible for the technical challenge of scaling up and maintaining Impossible Food's products
  • You are a strong scientist who provides both technical leadership and career development to junior and senior level scientists within the Product Development team
  • Develop strategy for technical programs, problem solving, and resourcing plans
  • Curate a productive, safe, rigorous and collaborative environment for your team to execute on ambitious goals on even more ambitious timelines You Have:
    • PhD Food Science or a related field
    • 10+ yrs experience working in food product commercialization at Senior Manager level
    • Inspiring, organized leader, competent navigating complex technical and team challenges
    • Ability to thrive in a diverse, dynamic team.
    • Self-starter that is naturally curious and enjoys working in a fast-past environment.
    • Ability to continuously challenge assumptions to seek innovative solutions. Impossible Foods Inc. is an Equal Opportunity Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, status as a protected veteran, status as an individual with a disability, or other applicable legally protected characteristics.
