Shellworks aims to address one of the biggest challenges of our generation: plastic pollution. Upon joining you’ll play a fundamental role in shaping Shellworks’ future.

This is a unique opportunity to work on scaling the future of materials inspired by nature. When you join us you’ll get to:

Play a crucial role in scaling product developments and manufacturing with our production partners to deliver products to the required cost, quality and timing.

Leading production and process development projects for new products and collaborating closely with production partners to address manufacturing issues.

Be the critical technical and project interface between design, engineering, supply chain, operations, suppliers and customers.

Implement best practices, drive continuous improvement and develop robust quality programs to ensure the highest standards of production quality.

Collaborate on world-first projects across the molecular biology, mechanical engineering, product design and operations teams.

We’d love to hear from you if:

You have a materials science, polymer processing or similar degree and 2+ years of relevant industry experience.

You have experience working in an industrial manufacturing environment (preferably in polymer processing across injection moulding, blow moulding, compounding or extrusion) including scaling production processes from prototype to serial production.

You have a robust understanding of root-cause problem-solving, implementing containment and corrective actions within a Quality Management System.

You have a hands-on approach to problem-solving and quickly assimilate and retain information.

Strong written and verbal communication skills to negotiate and implement process improvements with production partners.

You enjoy data analysis, validation, and documentation to drive continuous improvement activities to eliminate waste, maximise raw material yield and reduce cycle times.

You are a self-starter and believe the high autonomy environment of a dynamic, early-stage start-up and outsourced manufacturing to production partners is the right place to unleash your potential.
