Job Details


Here’s what all the hype is about…

Premier Nutrition Company (PNC) distributes great-tasting food products to health-conscious consumers under the brand names Premier Protein, PowerBar, Supreme Protein, and Joint Juice and part of publicly traded BellRing Brands (NYSE:BRBR). With its people-first culture, PNC empowers its people to create the best work of their lives alongside some truly amazing colleagues. We strive to make a workplace where you can feel like you and avoid many of the outdated processes and structure of conventional workplaces. We don’t have performance reviews—we have conversations. We don’t have command and control management—we have inspiring leaders to coach you. We don’t have a casual dress code—we simply don’t have a dress code; wear what you like. And we have a lot of fun.

Bringing dogs to work, company-wide volunteer days, philanthropy and sustainability programs, in-office massages, walking meetings, and free daily exercise classes on-site and at the adjacent gym are just a few ways we make work feel less like work. And the results of our great culture speaks for itself: we were certified as a Great Place to Work™ for the third year running in 2019 and ranked #7 on Fortune Magazine’s 2019 Best Small & Medium Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production.

So, what’s it like to work here? You’ll walk into our Emeryville office each Monday morning and find 100 of your colleagues sitting on sofas, beanbag chairs, or the floor excitedly talking through the week ahead and watching one of their colleagues tell their personal life and career journey. Picture the scrappy culture of a start-up, the innovative mindset of a tech company, and the stability of a brand that sold over $800 million last year, and you’ll find us in the sweet spot where world-class culture meets robust business results. PNC seeks individuals who will thrive in this collaborative and casual work environment and will help us build our culture and this high-growth company for the next phase in our amazing journey.
