Quality Assurance & Sensory Analyst (Athens, GA)

The QA & Sensory Analyst is responsible for ensuring the highest possible quality at every stage of production, from brewery raw material to finished product, through the use of analytical chemistry and statistical analyses. The incumbent will report directly to the Quality Assurance Manager. This position requires a 4-year degree in a science-intensive discipline. The candidate should possess a strong understanding of all areas of quality assurance and standardized laboratory testing and have a very strong statistical/data analysis background as it relates to quality assurance.
