Premier Nutrition Corporation (PNC) distributes nutritional food products to the health-conscious consumer under the brand names Premier Protein, PowerBar, Supreme Protein, and Joint Juice. With its people first culture, PNC treats employees with positivity and empathy and embraces new and innovative ideas that spark passion, personal growth, and a healthy dose of fun around the office. Bringing dogs to work, company-wide volunteer days, philanthropy and sustainability programs, in-office massages, walking meetings and workouts at the adjacent City Sports Club gym are just a few ways we help you increase your own good energy.

What’s it like to work here? Picture the scrappy culture of a start-up, the innovativeness of a tech company, with the resources and systems of a respected consumer brand under the Post Holdings umbrella, and you should have a sense of what it feels like to work at PNC. You’ll walk into the brand-new Emeryville office each Monday morning and find a hundred of your colleagues sitting on sofas, overstuffed pillows, the floor, or beanbags talking through the week ahead and learning about each other.

PNC seeks individuals who will thrive in this collaborative work environment and will help build our high-growth company. Our leadership principles capture the behaviors we aspire to and celebrate here—from ‘embodying a strategic mindset’ to ‘building people up’, each is a valuable tool in practicing leadership consistent with our values. We are Builders – looking for ways to challenge the status quo; Champions of Positive Nutrition - taking our role as health and nutrition seriously; Better Together – because we know that success is only achievable through our collective efforts; and we Ring the Bell, by celebrating big and small wins.
