Nuggs is an early-stage startup based in NYC.

We believe while using public transportation, shopping with reusable bags, and taking shorter showers are all commendable, none of these actions has as big an impact on the environment as what you eat does. When it comes to climate change, animal agriculture is the leading culprit. The best action we can take to reduce climate change is to adopt a plant-based diet but expecting people to change their life long habits and to consciously become vegan is unrealistic.

Our mission is to build a food system where food nourishes our bodies, sustains our planet, tastes amazing, and is accessible to everyone.

To make this mission a reality we must create products that replace meat while having the same characteristics as meat. There are a few companies making plant-based meats, but most of them taste nothing like actual meat. The few that do taste identical to actual meat are only being targeted towards vegetarians and vegans. While this is great, vegetarians and vegans already have plant-based diets, so this will not push the needle at all from an environmental perspective.

We would like to take existing plant-based meat products (that already have a near identical taste to meat) and utilize it to create a fun and friendly brand that appeals to carnivores, not just vegans and vegetarians. Once weve successfully done this with one product, we want to do it with multiple products.

We just raised funding from top venture capitalists and now were looking for a ambitious food scientist to lead the development of our first product • plant-based chicken nuggets.

You will
- Lead the development of our plant-based chicken nugget product beginning at the concept phase through successful commercialization.
- Input and maintain nutritional information and specifications.
- Maintain all required laboratory records, using electronic systems and written protocols.
- Lead product tastings.
- Work in collaboration with cross functional team members.
- Utilize scientific methods to develop knowledge that creates opportunities that support the companies mission and market objectives.

You have
- A Bachelors Degree in Food Science, Food Engineering or related science or engineering field.
- Experience in food product design, formulation, ingredient functionality and interaction, process design, product scale-up, plant testing and commercialization.
- Product development experience in the plant-based meat category is defenitely a plus.
- Ambition to dedicate your life to a big mission that has major positive impact.
- Ability to work in a fast-paced environment, really fast.
- A fun and friendly personality.

Joining our team isnt a career choice, its a life choice. Were looking for someone who wants to dedicate the next few years of their life to working towards our ambitious mission. Position will include cash, benefits and equity in the company.
