Bayer is looking for highly-motivated Seed Technicians for our row crops seed production site in Clarion, IA. In this position, you will report to a Production Manager.

In this position, you will work closely with other team members to identify ways to improve our processes. We are looking for employees who are passionate about maintaining the highest standards in the industry for safety, stewardship compliance, seed quality, cost, and supply reliability.

  • Ensure upstream activities (e.g., field inspection, grower contract) are handled within company standards and business requirements.

  • Cultivate partnership with key business partners to plant / field operations (e.g., grower network).

  • Use SAP to support administrative procedures, documenting key readings, maintenance orders and production information. Maintain key process documentation (operating, start-up and shut-down procedures; standard work; process flow and instrumentation diagrams; etc.).

  • Demonstrate knowledge of and adherence to Bayer's Health, Safety, Environment (HSE) and Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) standards (e.g. general shop floor/machine safety and operating procedures).

  • Comply with internal procedures and support compliance with legal requirements applicable to area activities.

  • Participate and prepare to lead Daily Direction Setting (DDS) meetings as needed; articulating shift objectives and allocating resources accordingly across all active production areas.

  • Support and maintain metrics and relevant information on current Visual Management boards to drive teamwork and facilitate shift change over.

  • Ability to lift a minimum of 60 lbs. (a bag of seed) and have a valid driver's license.

Required Skills/Experience:

  • High School Diploma or GED

  • Basic knowledge of IT (Internet, Excel, PowerPoint, Word, or facilities with systems)

  • Previous experience working in a manufacturing environment with a 24/7 rotating shift schedule, including overtime as needed

Bayer successfully completed the acquisition of Monsanto in June 2018, bringing together Monsanto's leadership in seeds and plant traits with Bayer's leadership in chemical and biological crop protection. By joining forces, we will create even more extensive career opportunities for talent around the world. We're a global team working to shape agriculture through breakthrough innovation that will benefit farmers, consumers, and our planet.
