We continue to grow our R&D team
After two years of R&D we have now launched our first product with a very positive response from the market! Taking this first step is scary but at the same time super exciting. With two more products to be launched the coming year and with many more to come, we are dedicated to continue to build a first class R&D team. With the existing team, we have the competencies and capacity needed for driving NPD and we are therefore looking to complement the team with a dedicated Food Reseacher.
Are you our next Dreamer to join our journey of producing the world's most ambitious cheese?
Our strategy and where we’re at
With the ambition to become a category leader and build a company to last, we are not taking things lightly. We are investing heavily in developing superior products where the R&D team will play a fundamental role. With the ambition to grow the team +20 during the coming 18 months we are dedicated to build and maintain one of the strongest technical teams there is.
As a Food Researcher 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 work with researching new ingredients, processes and packaging alternatives as well as supporting the new product development projects.
The majority of your time will be spent researching and evaluating your findings and ideas in the laboratory, where you will be planning, designing and executing relevant experiments. The focused research projects will differ based on the current objectives of the company and your own ideas. You will collaborate with the product development and be involved in different projects depending on your expertise and interest, it could be in formulations, sensory evaluations or nutritional calculations.
You will collaborate closely with the rest of the R&D team (+8 individuals) and you will report to me, Monica Gonzalez, R&D Manager.
Who you are
You don’t have to be vegan, actually none of us are 100% strict ourselves, but we do expect you to be as comfortable in the laboratory as you are behind the computer and love to put your research to good use. When it comes to the requirements, we expect you to have;
At least Ms in Food Science, Chemical / Biotech Engineering or similar field
+3 years of laboratory research on food products.
Throughout your career in the industry so far, you have gained knowledge in complex food systems, nutrition and food safety and it's a great plus if you are especially familiar with surface and colloid chemistry, protein design or fermentation and eager to fill in any blanks.
As a person you are self-driven, innovative and have a solution oriented mindset. You believe that ‘caring is sharing’ 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 prestigeless team-players in order to reach our mission.
