At Notpla, we are on a mission to make packaging disappear. We are an innovative, ideas- and action-oriented start-up transitioning into its scale-up phase that was founded on the belief that nature knows best. We are currently looking to bring in an Executive Assistant to work with our 2 founders and Co-CEO’s. We are open to how this position is occupied and will consider part time and full time applicants for the role. What we will require though is someone who is willing to be on site in order to spend facetime with the Co-CEO’s and other directors.
We are focusing on developing truly sustainable packaging solutions, designed to tackle single-use plastic. Ooho and our other products are made from Notpla, a revolutionary material made from seaweed and plants that biodegrades in weeks, naturally.
At Notpla, we truly believe in what we are trying to achieve and we believe in our employees' ability to help us achieve our goals. Because of this, anybody joining Notpla will be given the opportunity to develop and grow, you won’t be micromanaged, we want you to take responsibility for your domain. This common goal has created a fantastic business culture where everyone takes care. We know that we work better together and this is reflected in our environment and working policies. To go alongside great roles, working in a great working environment, Notpla also offers competitive salaries, the potential for EMI Options, fantastic benefits including discounts with local businesses and large international retailers. We also offer a flexible working policy that allows you to work to your own flow. We are a social business with multiple clubs and events every week, we are incredibly proud of how our diverse workplace has created a community all pushing together in the pursuit of making packaging disappear.
Rodrigo trained as an architect and designer, and took a particular interest in waste as building materials. He built a pavilion in Paris made of hundreds of thousands of plastic bottles. Originally from Madrid, Spain, he is a true innovator with an obsession for biomimicry, always finding a way to take a page out of Nature’s book.
Pierre is a packaging engineer by background. Having worked at L’Oreal to industrialise plastic sunscreen bottles and cream jars in the tens of millions, he felt the urge to transition towards sustainable solutions. He’s originally from Lyon in France and has a contagious passion for sustainable technologies.
The pair met during a Master’s programme in Imperial College and Royal College of Art in London during which they prototyped the first Oohos in their kitchen. The project became viral online and the kitchen experiment has turned into a multidisciplinary team of 60 chemists, engineers, designers and entrepreneurs.
