Scroll to content

Get up every morning knowing you are putting your energy, time and skills towards a meaningful purpose - to develop tasty foods that fit within our planetary boundaries and ethical compass.

Re-thinking our favourite foods using science

Noquo Foods was founded in 2019 to challenge the status quo and reimagine the foods we love. Using science and biotechnology we aim to develop plant based alternatives that are tastier, more nutritious, cheaper and more sustainable for our planet. 

We are currently in an early R&D phase developing our first products in the cheese category. Mimicking dairy based cheese is extremely complex, often referred to as a mission impossible, and the available vegan cheese alternatives leave much room for improvement. As we are about to travel uncharted waters, we are looking for an ambitious pollywog by our side.


The role and responsibilities

First of all, bear in mind that our company and R&D team is fairly young, which means any role is still broad and we have both unpredictability and flexibility in the process. We are looking for someone with a scientific background who will be a steady force in our lab in Södertälje, helping us accelerate the product development. 

You will work closely with the Head of R&D and help ensure an efficient setup with the expectation to take full ownership of the lab with time. The assignments would include handling samples, executing and evaluating experiments, continuously register results, perform sensory and qualitative analysis, carry out quality control, inventory management as well as regular equipment maintenance combined with project-based research. The position will change and develop as the company grows and according to your personal goals and strengths. 


Your experience

You have either a Master or Bachelor degree in Science e.g. Biotechnology, Chemical Engineering, Food Technology, Life Science or equivalent. You have spent many days in a lab and feel right at home. We would be thrilled if you have deeper understanding regarding surface and colloidal chemistry and it’s a big plus if you have experience in the food industry. 


A bit more about you...

In your work you are patient, pay close attention to details, quality-conscious and with the capacity for critical thinking. Since this is a start-up, you embrace a fast paced and ever changing environment where you think on your feet and tackle many tasks at the same time without losing focus or be put off by repeated assignments. You don’t have to be fearless, but you should be brave and with a positive attitude. 

You want to join us because you want to make a difference. And finally, you should know that if we end up working together, we will embark on a life-changing journey together!  



The selection process will be continuous, the employment is probationary with an intention of making it a permanent employment and commencing as soon as possible.

Initial conversation and screening is done by our CEO Sorosh Tavakoli. Head of R&D Anja Leissner is then responsible for the process and the recruitment.
