  • In the winter, you’ll be cleaning & packaging seed, supporting maintenance work, warehousing and shipping seed to ensure our grower customers have the product they need for the coming planting season.




We offer a competitive hourly rate of $19 - $24 per hour with overtime as applicable. Starting salary is based on candidate experience, education and market pay for role in the region.  Our sites offer excellent internal career growth opportunities within the seed technician role and in cross-functional positions. 


We also offer a full benefits package including:

  • Generous insurance FROM DAY ONE (including 3 medical insurance package options, vision, dental & life insurance).
  • 16 paid holidays
  • 3 weeks paid time off
  • 401k match & additional core contribution each year
  • $2/hour premium pay for 2nd and 3rd shift
