Welcome to RAWBITE:

RAWBITE, founded in 2009 by three friends with a passion for healthy and energetic snacking, is a leading brand in the organic fruit and nut bar industry. We remain committed to our core principles of providing pure, honest taste through 100% organic, vegan, gluten-free and naturally sourced ingredients. Our bars are crafted with simplicity and transparency, catering to a conscious and active consumer base across Europe.

The Position at hand:

We are seeking a dynamic and innovative Product Development and Quality Specialist to join our team. This role is pivotal in ensuring the continued development of our product range while driving innovation and sustainability initiatives. You will play a key role in overseeing product development projects, maintaining quality standards, and collaborating closely with cross-functional teams. In a small company, that essentially means all of us.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Lead product development projects from concept to commercialization, collaborating with food technologists and production experts of our mother company to ensure alignment with brand values and market trends.
  • Conduct continuous quality control and assurance measures throughout the production process, adhering to IFS standards and regulatory requirements.
  • Manage incoming raw materials inspection and acceptance procedures, maintaining high standards of ingredient sourcing and traceability.
  • Gather and analyze consumer feedback to inform product improvements and new flavor development initiatives.
  • Drive sustainability initiatives within the production process, optimizing resource utilization and minimizing waste.
  • Act as a liaison between Rawbite and external manufacturing partners, ensuring seamless execution of new product launches and quality management protocols.

    We are looking for you - if you have:

    • Let’s start the list with what most don’t say: if you think you cover a majority of what follows but might still need development in some other areas, tell us. No worries, nobody was born knowledgeable. But do tell us which areas are those you wish to develop in and in which you’ll do your best along the way. Now, the gist:

    • Bachelor's degree in Food Science, Food Technology, or related field. Advanced degree preferred.

    • Experience in product development and quality assurance within the food industry, preferably in the snack or nutrition sector.

    • Understanding of organic, vegan, and gluten-free product development principles, with a focus on natural ingredient sourcing and clean label formulations.

    • Familiarity with quality management systems, food safety standards, and regulatory compliance requirements (e.g., IFS, HACCP).

    • Project management skills, with the ability to prioritize tasks and meet deadlines in a fast-paced environment.

    • Effective communication and collaboration skills: work cross-functionally and work with (or, as some might see it, influence) key stakeholders.

    • Passion for health, sustainability, and conscious consumerism, aligned with Rawbite's mission and values. The majority of us isn’t vegan, by the way.

    Why you should join RAWBITE:

    • Competitive salary and benefits package
    • Opportunity for professional growth and development within a dynamic and entrepreneurial environment
    • Flexible work hours and remote work options
    • Supportive team culture with a focus on collaboration and innovation
    • Rawbite bars – surprise, eh?

    We’re in Copenhagen, and you will need to do some travelling every now and then.

    How to Apply:

    If you're passionate about creating wholesome and delicious snacks that nourish both body and soul, and if you're excited to join a pioneering brand with a clear mission, we'd love to hear from you!

    Tell us how you think you’d fit in a small company in which everything relies on a functioning team and where it is essential we all pull in the same direction. Don’t bother telling us why you absolutely love our brand and always wanted to work for us – we know how cover letters work and how much BS they include. Having tried one of our bars does help, though. Tell us how your experience is absolutely what we need and how we can’t continue without you instead!

    Please submit your resume and a cover letter outlining your relevant experience and why you're the ideal candidate for this role. For further information and application please write to: jobs@rawbite.com.

    We look forward to hearing from you.
