Founder's Associate - Early stage startup /  London or Remote / 25k + Equity

About the venture
Join us to tackle one of the world's most pressing issues: the plastic packaging crisis.

By 2024, we will have created an industry where reusing packaging beats single use in every way, this will allow us to migrate an entire industry to reuse & save billions of units of packaging from landfill.

We're building a network of smart packaging cleaning hubs, each one containing highly efficient packaging cleaning machines, allowing us to collect, clean & return packaging to brands for refill & reuse. Our innovative model delivers huge water, energy & carbon benefits, whilst still matching the price of single use packaging. With stats like these, we're set to build the infrastructure that changes the way the world consumes.

We're building a team of world class innovators & would love to have you on the team.
