Controls Technical Specialist II Job Description

Resting at 7,000 feet and surrounded by the San Francisco Peaks, the scenic city of Flagstaff remains an important distribution site for large manufacturers, like Nestlé Purina. Just a stone’s throw from downtown, where the city’s culture comes to life, our Nestlé Purina Family in Flagstaff experiences the best of both worlds: the city and the mountains. Annually, we mass manufacture 270,000 tons of dry pet food from our Dog Chow®, Beneful®, Nestlé Purina ONE®, Alpo® and Pro Plan® brands – and we’re doing it all underneath 70,000 square feet of solar panels to draw nearly 12 million kilowatt hours of clean emission-free solar electricity.

  • Configure, program, and troubleshoot Programmable Logic Controls (PLC)
  • Perform Preventive Maintenance for controls and organize electrical/control parts inventory.
  • Provide programming and electrical support on plant capital projects
  • Implement control systems software upgrade
  • Provide instrumentation, PLC and HMI/SCADA software and hardware support to plant maintenance staff

BASIC QUALIFICATIONS (Minimum):

  • High School Diploma/GED and 5+ years of applicable experience in PLC software and hardware troubleshooting and/or PLC-based HMI-systems
