Senior Product Developer

Success Factors




Do you dream of working for a CREATIVE and FUN company where your passion for product development and innovation can shine?  A company where your technical expertise, leadership and coaching skills impact not just R&D, but our cross functional teams and our external partners?   Dream no more….


We are looking for a Senior Product Developer/Leader who THRIVES on the challenges of innovating new products AND sharing knowledge and expertise to coach and develop teams.      


YOU are a credible and experienced senior food scientist with a portfolio of successful launches.  You thrive on working in a collaborative and fast-paced product development environment.   You love and embrace change yet can stay focused to deliver amazing, flavorful results.  You’ve been responsible for leading projects – taking new product ideas from concept through to successful commercialization.  You’re the type of person who can move easily during the day from working at an R&D bench to conducting a strategic review of a product line at a team meeting.  You get especially excited about ferreting out and testing new ingredient solutions to create delicious, more natural beverage products.  


You are also about people!  Not just your own team, but cross functional teams, partners, suppliers AND our wider community.   You know the “recipe” to bring the right individuals together and motivate them to achieve great results.  Your “can do” attitude, relationship building skills, persuasive communication skills and intellect mark you out as a leader to follow.


Look out a year from now, and you’re being recognized at our annual meeting as one of our most innovative and caring leaders.  You’ve helped lead and develop an “out-of-the-box” product formulation for a new product line that exceeded our expectations.  You led a project that dramatically increased the shelf life of one of our most important products.  You helped us to win an industry award for our innovation on a completely new product that set us apart from our competitors.  You’re our Hero!


Torani is one of the fastest growing and dynamic specialty food companies in the San Francisco Bay Area.  We have a massive pipeline of new product introductions, and we constantly seek to improve our product performance and consumer appeal.  We’re the type of company that prides itself on being 3 steps ahead of our closest competitor in terms of food science expertise, creativity, and innovation.  We are also recognized as one of the most fun, friendly, and warm companies you’ll ever come across in your career!
