We typically work on projects of 6-12 months’ duration with focus on making significant and value creating process improvements. We work in projects with focus on team work.
To keep meeting our business targets in a dynamic environment, people development is a focus area in the daily work for all Zymers as well as continuous improvement of the way we work.

  • Have a strong analytical and creative mind combined with a lot of personal drive
  • Have experience and interest in running and optimizing fermentation processes
  • Have experience and interest in handling and analyzing big data sets from fermentations
  • Have a structured approach in your daily work; you are capable of keeping an overview in an environment where changes are an integrated part of the daily work
