Careers at Premier
Why work at Premier?
Not many firms can boast that their workforce includes 800 ewes, 40 chickens, 6 livestock guardian dogs, 2 horses, a gaggle of geese, and more goats than we’d care to admit. But, we can!
It matters because we field test our products to determine their strengths (and weaknesses) before we offer them to you. Traditional farmstores don’t do this.
If this sounds interesting, we invite you to join our team. You'll have an opportunity to work with like-minded people in a learning-friendly, family oriented environment. Read more about us here.

R&D Product Manager
Are you a farmyard tinkerer or a backyard engineer? Do you find yourself thinking about…
- How can I make this product better, or adapt it for another use?
- I have great ideas that would benefit all farmers, but no means to pursue them.
- What’s next in sustainable agriculture production?
Premier is looking for someone who enjoys designing and building products, has equal parts technical acumen and people skills, likes to travel (the globe) and is willing to relocate to Washington, Iowa. (We’ll help.)
We think our ideal candidate might already be a customer. Why? Because we’ve met many of you and have found a few to be just like us: Curious, innovative and trustworthy. Plus, you already know that we:
- Treat others how we’d like to be treated.
- Are cautious about products until they’ve been field-tested on our own farms.
- Never stop improving our products and pushing our suppliers to do the same.
As Premier’s product manager, you’d be responsible for:
- Moving product tasks forward
- Facilitating communication with suppliers/manufacturers
- Preparing CAD drawings
- Quality control of new and existing products
This is not an entry-level position. Only serious candidates who have a background/education in engineering, management, or a related field should apply.
Please send your resume to and tell us why you’d be a good fit.
