Beth Kowitt 2014年06月05日

500强公司里不只有CEO、会计师、律师这些常规的岗位,还有运送鲨鱼的,专门研发冰淇淋新口味的,天天跟蜥蜴、蜘蛛打交道的有趣职位。羡慕死了?快看看你能在哪家公司找到心仪的职位。

全球农艺总监——星巴克公司

    卡洛斯•马里奥•罗德里格斯就是那个确保你每天清早喝到的咖啡绝不走味的家伙。2004年,他一进星巴克公司(Starbucks)就提出要开设星巴克自己的农场。甚至他在和首席执行官霍华德•舒尔茨首次见面时就提出了这个想法。去年五月,他终于梦想成真,星巴克公司在他的家乡哥斯达黎加买下了一个农场。

    在这个农场,他和自己的团队正在开发50种全新的咖啡豆新品种。它们能抵御咖啡锈病的侵蚀。这种病由真菌引起,会彻底毁掉咖啡树。星巴克公司会把成功培育出来的树种免费送给咖啡种植者。罗德里格斯自己就出生在一个一直种植咖啡和甘蔗的家庭,现在他还与农民们通力合作,设法帮助他们生产品质更高的咖啡,获得更高的收益。(财富中文网)

Director, Global Agronomy - Starbucks

    Carlos Mario Rodriguez is the guy helping make sure your morning cup of coffee isn’t going anywhere. Immediately after Starbucks hired him in 2004, Rodriguez started making noises about starting a Starbucks-owned farm. He even brought it up with CEO Howard Schultz the first time they met. Rodriguez got his wish last year in May when Starbucks bought a working farm in his native Costa Rica.

    Here, he and a team are working on developing 50 new bean varietals that are resistant to coffee rust, a fungus that devastates coffee plants. The company will distribute seedlings of the successful ones to coffee growers for free. Rodriguez, whose family has always worked in coffee and sugar cane, also works with farmers to help them figure out how to produce higher quality coffee and get better yields.
