Volare is Hiring: Operator at Hyvinkää, Finland

We are looking for an Operator to join our innovative and driven team with a mission to change the food industry. Volare is a biotechnology company creating radically sustainable protein and fats from food industry side streams.

By combining the natural powers of insects and cutting edge technology we are radically reducing the environmental burden of the food chain.

We are a driven, professional and diverse team and we value learning, caring for each other and the planet as well as our purpose to change the food chain for the better. We already have a great track-record, we have a demonstration plant running at full capacity and have partnered with Myllyn Paras and Paulig. In 2023 we will start building a first-of-its-kind industrial scale insect rearing and processing facility.

As an Operator, you will be part of our daily operations at the demonstration facility at Hyvinkää with an enthusiastic team, who are all experts on insects and the food industry, but come from diverse backgrounds. As we are a startup with a high ambition level, you will also get to learn a lot on building a company and developing new operations.

You will be responsible for: - Operating selected parts of our operations according to production plan and instructions — insect rearing and product processing - Ensuring safe, organised, high-quality and efficient operations together with the team - Continuous development of our operations together with the team - Participating in the planning and design of the industrial scale plant on your own responsibility area

We appreciate the following experience, expertise and personal qualities: - Suitable experience or education - We value diversity, and are open to different backgrounds — you do not need to have experience with insects or food production - Willingness to work physically and with insects — you're ok with lifting things, wearing safety equipment and working literally hands-on - Enthusiasm to learn and take responsibility of operations - Ability to work independently based on production plan and to note development points - Hands-on problem solving attitude - Adequate teamwork and communications skills

We offer you a unique opportunity to join an ambitious startup in an early stage. Working with us, you can be sure that your efforts every day are meaningful, impactful and build a better future for the planet and people. We provide training to the job, support for you to succeed and want to make sure you enjoy your job too. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package.

The position is full-time and will be filled as soon as we find the right person.

To apply fill the form latest on 6 November, 2022.
