Packaging Development Engineer (m/w/d)

Ingenieure und technische Berufe

Our Mission

We are building a pool system of reusable packaging scalable to all food segments and retail channels - starting in Germany. In the future, consumers will be able to buy sliced cheese, coffee or rice in a reusable packaging alternative, return the packaging after use so that it can be cleaned and refilled. This is a complex mission that will have an enormous positive impact.

About the Company

Circolution is a System Development Company that - together with its partners - co-creates the future system through the Agile System Development process. The starting point for building the system is developing an innovative holistic packaging solution. Our Modular Packaging Concept is in the prototype stage and resonates well with the industry. We will develop it further through a powerful and unique process including an Open Design Challenge, Consumer Co-Creation, Piloting as well as Ecological & Financial Evaluation.

After several iterations during an intense and productive Foundation Year, we are moving towards implementation: We know how to best address the problem, are closing key partnerships and beginning to communicate. Importantly, we have built a strong role-based team culture inspired by Holacracy whereby each team member has a say and learns to take over full responsibility for their role. For all of us, this has definitely been a challenging and fulfilling journey of personal growth.
