Job description

Climate change and biodiversity loss are accelerating and threatening the foundations of our lives. Food, especially meat, is a major cause of greenhouse gas emissions. We know it, yet all too often we give in to our cravings and choose meat instead of sustainable alternatives. And did you know: global meat consumption is growing massively!
We are convinced that irresistible pleasures, not compromise, are key to changing people’s ways. What the world needs is new food, so delicious that billions of people indulge in eating it, saving the planet as a beneficial side effect.
There’s no time to lose. Join us now and let’s build this positive future together!

Are you experienced in designing machines and processes from scratch? Do you have experience adapting machine prototypes and processes to product-specific requirements? Do you have a passion for sustainable foods and deep tech? We are looking for a passionate experienced engineer to bring our manufacturing process to the next level.

As our Senior Automation Engineer at Project Eaden, you will be responsible for developing machines and processes around our core technology to supply billions of people worldwide with the next generation of sustainable foods. You will become the driving force behind our process and future automation team. You will develop new production processes starting from fast iterated prototypes up to scalable remote controlled machines in the long run with some 100k tons of output per year. According to your experience and personal development ideas, we would love for you to lead our engineering team in the near future.
