Who is the role with?

With an unlimited R&D budget, and partnered with the biggest name in luxury beverages, this well-funded start-up is simply one of a kind.

The start-up works in short, high-volume product runs so the ideal person would have experience working in a fast-paced environment.

That’s something I have done before! What do I need to get an interview?

- A great attitude – seriously, culture fit is the number one priority for this company as they continue to scale!

- A degree in Chemical Engineering or related.

Okay, what else would put me above the rest?
