WORK WITH US

Beyond Ag is reshaping the global food system. We transform food waste into food and fertiliser with insects. To do this, we’ve brought together a team of exceptionally talented and resourceful doers. At Beyond Ag, we work in the future where sustainable food production is inevitable.

Since founding Beyond Ag in 2019, we’ve developed world-leading insect farming technology that will shape the future of sustainable food production. Today, every tonne of insect protein we produce is equivalent to planting 1,600 trees in carbon emissions offset.

We celebrate multiple approaches and points of view, we are inclusive and we believe diversity drives innovation. If you’re not afraid to jump in and figure it out as you go along, we’d love to hear from you! 

ABOUT THE ROLE

As a Production Specialist at Beyond Ag, you'll be hands-on in our facilities working to overcome a number of the production challenges to make this exciting future possible. One day you’ll be breeding insects in artificial conditions and managing food waste processing, and the next day you’ll be harvesting and processing insect protein and fertiliser going directly to customers.

At Beyond Ag, you'll be working in a fast-paced environment to develop new solutions combining data, automation and biotechnology at the forefront of this exciting new industry. The Production Team works directly with the Chief Operations Officer to optimise the production of insect protein and fertiliser.

We care more that you bring curiosity, enthusiasm, willingness to learn, and tenacity than any specific technical skills.

The position is based in Melbourne, Australia.
