Trials Engineer

Who are we:

We are an ambitious start-up that has secured venture funding which is allowing us to rapidly grow the business.  Our main brand is RootWave.

What are we about:

Our technology uses electricity to kill weeds and is at the forefront of solving two of the most pressing global issues. The first is to remove chemical herbicides from our food and the environment to improve the health of the global ecosystem. The second is to create healthy soils that capture and store carbon to reduce the impact of global warming. Our technology is a sustainable and regenerative alternative to chemical herbicides.

What are we looking for:

We are looking for people that love what they do, as it is that passion and dedication that will help us achieve our goals and improve the world we live in.  You should be open minded, flexible and adaptable in your approach, with a solution focused attitude.

Our expectations:

As an innovative business we have moved away from detailed job descriptions.  We will give you an overview of the role as it stands today and empower you to grow in your role as our company evolves.

Working with the Chief Research Officer and the wider research team we expect you to contribute to and deliver the field trial element of our work. This includes: establishing trials sites; planning experimental work: contributing to the specification, configuration, build and evaluation of research systems; the processing of experimental data sets to aid in the evaluation of the tests being completed.

Who you are:

You will hold a scientific degree or be able to demonstrate an equivalent level of understanding through alternative education and experiential means. Candidates will need to be motivated, comfortable operating independently and as part of a wider delivery team with, ideally, prior experience of operating equipment in a scientific manner. You will need to demonstrate a logical and methodical approach to activities and be able to communicate comfortably in both written and spoken forms.

What do we offer:

We offer a competitive total reward package as well as working for a company that values its people and achieved a ‘One to Watch’ Accreditation from Best Companies.  We encourage a hybrid approach to working as we trust our people to deliver their outputs in a way that benefits both the business and the individual.

If what you have read excites you as much as it does us, please send your CV and tell us the value you can add on our journey.  We look forward to hearing from you.
