Quality Assurance Manager



Quality Assurance
Vacaville, CA, USA
Posted on Tuesday, December 13, 2022
Who we are:
Founded in 2013, Thistle is a leading tech-enabled food and nutrition company that delivers ready-to-eat meals right to your doorstep. We empower our customers to get and stay healthy while improving the sustainability of our food system. Thistle began as a single pop-up location in San Francisco selling cold-pressed juices to delivering nearly 15 million delicious, healthy, plant-forward meals, organic cold-pressed juices, and snacks.
About the role:
Reporting to the Director, Food Safety and Quality Assurance, the QA Manager will oversee all aspects of Quality Management Systems, Regulatory Compliance, 3rd Party Food Safety certifications, and Customer Safety & Satisfaction. The QA Manager manages a growing team of 2 QA Supervisors plus 13 QA/QC/Sanitation members and is responsible for training their team and facility team members to recognize defects and imperfections at all stages of the manufacturing and packaging process to uphold consistent quality standards. Collaborating with cross-functional teams, the QA Manager generates and implements critical initiatives to protect and enhance our food quality.
This is not a desk job. We are a hands-on company, and the ideal candidate is someone who enjoys getting in the trenches and working collaboratively with the team to understand the challenges they face, identify opportunities, and work to thoroughly develop the implementation of a comprehensive food quality assurance program for our operations.
This position is 100% onsite in our Vacaville, CA facility.
