We recently closed our Seed Round to fund what we believe is the most ambitious attempt to make a better cheese. After a long period of extensive research, some of our prototypes are progressing well and we are now looking to hire a Product Developer with hands on experience from the food industry to help us successfully take them to market.
In this position you will report to myself (Sorosh Tavakoli, CEO) and naturally work very closely with Anja Leissner and the R&D team. You will project manage the development process from prototype to launch and take lead on the various activities needed to get there.
Naturally you will be involved in pilot and large scale production, topics around quality, hygiene, certifications, packaging etc. You will also be the voice of the customer and represent their needs and requirements. You will need a hybrid perspective combining the commercial, technical and strategic dimensions of the business.
While we have ideas around this position, we are equally keen to hear your perspectives on how we should structure the Product Development function. Our main focus to date has been on the earlier research heavy phases of development.
We are looking for someone with hands on experience (a must have) from the food industry who can guide us in this new function. We hope you have participated actively in developing products that have been commercially launched.
Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or apply directly. We are very much looking forward speaking with you!
