We are looking for a detail-oriented and driven person with an understanding of the importance of managing crop issues with a sense of urgency. We seek a self-motivated individual who takes ownership with a continuous improvement mindset. This person should understand that many important decisions and plans need to and can be made while carrying out regular day-to-day operations.
