Building a first class R&D team
After two years of R&D we are about to launch our first product which is scary, overwhelming and the same time super exciting! However, this is only the beginning as we are planning to launch several more products within the near future. To make this happen, we need a first class R&D team. Having a team of five, we have kicked off the journey to grow the team to +20 individuals. To take our research and development to the next level, we are now looking for talented food scientists to join the team and produce the world's most ambitious cheese!
As a Food Scientist you will be part of the very core of our company. From researching new areas in food technology to evaluating your findings in the lab, you will be working with the full product development process from concept to commercialisation.
Most of the time will be spent in the laboratory, where you will be planning, designing and executing on different experiments for pilot and production. The collected and analysed data will be used to conduct analytical tests, quality control and sensory evaluations. Furthermore, you will recommend the handling based on food safety and the nutritional content as well as being involved in consumer testing, shelf life and product stability studies.
As innovation is key, there will be several exciting research projects to take the lead on as well.
You will collaborate closely with the rest of the R&D team and report to Anja Leissner, Head of R&D.
Who you are
You don’t have to be vegan, actually none of us are 100% strict about it, but we do expect you to be as comfortable in the laboratory as you are behind the computer and are passionated to put your research to good use. When it comes to the requirements, we expect you to either have;
A MSc in Food Science, Chemical / Biotech Engineering or within related field
comparable education and a couple of years of industrial experience from developing and launching food products.
You have knowledge in quality control, nutrition and food safety and it's a great plus if you are especially familiar in surface and colloid chemistry, protein design or fermentation and/or eager to fill in any blanks.
As a person you are self-driven, innovative and have a solution oriented mindset. You believe in ‘sharing is caring’ and enjoys sharing knowledge and research insights with the rest of the team. Lastly, working in a fast-paced environment means that we all need to be flexible, efficient and ambitious team-players in order to reach our mission.
Here you can read more about us and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, or apply directly. The start date is as soon as possible and we are evaluation applications continuously.
We are very much looking forward to hearing from you!
