Are you looking for the chance to join an exciting company at the beginning of our rise to fame? Are you bored with the other options out there, and want a job that will challenge you mentally and physically, and give you the tools to become a unique asset to any other company you work for?
Nutkrack is seeking a Production Manager for our shop on Atwood Ave. in Madison, WI. This may sound like a simple, normal job, but it is anything but. Nutkrack is the world's best candied pecans, and our company is growing at a ridiculous clip. Our sales were up 300% last year, and we expect more of the same in 2020. We are searching for people who want more than just a normal job. Our ideal new colleague will be smart and self-driven, the type of person who finishes their assigned task early, and looks for the next thing to do without being asked. While your first priority will be helping us make and package our amazing nuts, you might find yourself doing any of the million different things it takes to run a growing small business that is about to take the world by storm! You will have the chance to learn how to build something from the ground up, and feel the satisfaction that comes with creating an amazing product and business. Does this sound like you? Well, what are you waiting for?!

This position is 35+ hours/week. Specific days and times are somewhat negotiable based on experience and existing staff schedules. Most shifts will be M-F, but scheduling flexibility is a must as we approach our busiest season at the end of the year.
