JPG Resources is a leading innovation and product development firm, servicing emerging brands as well as the biggest food companies across the globe.  We're continuing to expand and are looking for a mid-level to senior product developer to join our team.

JPGR Product Developers partner with our clients and our internal team of 45 professionals to take projects from idea stage through successful launch.  We are a results focused, business outcome oriented firm who takes pride in delivering not only great products, but great solutions for brands and their consumers.  We have a success rate of over 80% with the new products we've launched over the past 10 years, which far outpaces industry norms.  We value team members who constantly strive to deliver great results which will deliver value to our clients for years to come.

This role requires flexibility and technical depth. The successful candidate will have a background in commercial bakery, having launched multiple shelf-stable products.  Additionally, we expect our team to deploy broad technical skills in food science, manufacturing, and problem solving to flex to other product categories successfully.  Our team is constantly responding to developing market trends, new ingredients, and new technology, while also educating clients on food safety, product stability, and pricing pressures.  Our product developers are comfortable in the fuzzy front end, on the bench, and in the plant.  Finally, our team understands how to dig deep with the big boys and how to run fast with the startups and young brands.  We apply our experience and skills equally to deliver for clients with wildly varying expectations of time and budget.  At JPG Resources, this constant learning and challenge motivates and inspires us.  If it does the same for you - let's talk!
