Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is seeking an off-centered Maintenance Manager to lead our Maintenance Team. The successful candidate should be a highly functional blend of technical know-how, leadership and off centered culture for our brewery. You will head up the team that maintains all areas of our brewery, including utilities, brewing and packaging equipment, and facilities. You will be called upon to organize and prioritize the department while you develop and implement routine maintenance schedules and procedures. You will hire, develop, train and retain talented multi-craft co-workers who bring depth to the department. As much we love our beer, our people, our pride and you’ll lead a pretty diverse group of them. The successful candidate will both work with our people as well as achieve through them. A manager who can roll up their sleeves and turn a wrench as well as delegate will likely do well. You should be as comfortable in the brewery as behind a desk or this gig ain’t for you.
The highly successful Maintenance Manager will be a highly organized, well-planned and structured calm in the storm. Does a cradle to grave based philosophy get you giddy? Do you want to design, develop and implement a world class preventive maintenance program? Then come show us your abilities to document processes, evaluate plans, develop PM procedures and develop your co-workers. You must be a great pro-active communicator, who is able to build rapport and camaraderie both inter- and intra-departmentally to ensure excellent service in all areas of the brewery. You should possess a strong focus on quality, safety, failure analysis, and efficiency. This focus should lend itself to a constant evaluation of work practices and equipment performance in the spirit of improvement. Repeat breakdowns should drive you nuts, cuz’ figuring out how to make it run until the next failure straight up sucks. Practical experience setting up, implementing and managing CMMS/predictive maintenance technologies will be pivotal to success.
The qualified candidate will have a minimum of 5 years supervisory maintenance experience in a production environment. A four year degree in an engineering science, high speed packaging operations and/or batch processing experience is preferred. Computer skills should include proficiency in MS Office, CMMS systems, CAD, and accounting software (you’ll manage a budget), preferably Tabware, and Great Plains preferred. Comprehension of different manufacturing improvement techniques, including when to use them and when to throw them in the trash is required. This isn’t just a desk job so the physical requirements of the job include the ability to lift up to 50 pounds and work overhead. You will be all over the place so you better be able to stoop, kneel, crouch or crawl, and have fun while you’re doing it!
Dogfish Head offers competitive compensation including bonus potential, 401K company match, a fabulous health care package to include health/dental and most importantly perhaps FREE yummy beer!
