Careers

As a research-and-development organization focused on agricultural and industrial technology, PAMI’s personnel complement is heavily weighted towards engineers, agrologists, technicians and technologists, welders and metal fabricators, and administration and clerical staff.

PAMI is a dynamic, exciting place to work with enthusiastic, energetic team players. The nature of our projects and work exposes you to a wide variety of jobs, projects, and tasks that call for critical thinking and analysis to generate outside-the-box creative solutions.

PAMI’s operations are located in smaller rural agricultural communities of Humboldt, Saskatchewan and Portage la Prairie, Manitoba that are great places to work, live and raise a family.
