Engineering Team Lead

ABOUT US

Our mission is to bring people together to turn the tide on ocean plastic. It's our belief that we don’t need a handful of people doing sustainability perfectly, we need millions doing it imperfectly. We have big plans and ambitions and have some great backing behind us - Ocean Bottle is made up of a lean but growing team and this is an opportunity to come join a brand that is going to change the world for the better.

Since launching in January 2019 Ocean Bottle has shipped hundreds of thousands of units to 88 countries and partnered with brands including Pangaia, Red Bull, Universal Music, Golden Globes through to Ed Sheeran. We have collected 4,543,176 kgs of plastic and improved livelihoods at the same time, because whether at home or further afield, environmental justice is social justice. We are proud of our diversity policy and it’s our belief that better ideas come from a more diverse team and that the ocean needs all of us. Our work is driven by our impact pillars, which we put front and center to what we do: Ocean Health, Social Good, Closing the Loop and Climate Action. By 2025 our goal is to prevent the equivalent of 7 billion plastic bottles from entering the ocean.

Will you help us get there?

 

ABOUT YOU

We’re looking for our very first in-house engineering hire to work directly with our Head of Platform, founders and leadership team. The Engineering Lead will play a key role in leading the technical direction of our ambitious Ocean tech roadmap. We are looking to hire a dynamic technology leader to build and lead a team of talented engineers. This is a great opportunity to shape Ocean Bottle’s technology & strategy to push the boundaries of what is possible in the sustainable and environmental space.

You will help drive and develop our Technology roadmap (including our mobile app, ledger and APIs, as well as Web3 projects) and collaborate with key stakeholders (internal and external) on architecture, requirements and implementation of technical solutions. You will also support the Head of Platform in identifying our technology needs and will lead on hiring your engineering team.
