We are looking for a Textile Engineer intern to help NOOSA™ grow together. We are giving you the opportunity to take up an incredible challenge in a young and dynamic environment! It requires motivation, energy only & Fluency in English. The position is based in Brussels for a duration of 4 to 6 months.

 

At NOOSA™, we have the ambition to revolutionize the textile industry by making it circular. Our mission is to reduce textile waste on a global scale by redesigning the textile industry’s global value chain. The first step towards realising this mission is introducing our bio-based textile fiber and facilitate its collection to recycle it at 100% thanks to our patented technology. Founded in 2019, we have raised 500.000€ in March 2020 and we have won an extra 500.000€ for being the most innovative startup in January 2021.

 

Your mission

 

Your main job will be to assist the R&D team by investigating specific textile application for our spun and multifilament yarns. You will be part of a young start-up environment, having a strong force of proposition and freedom.

The ideal candidate

 

  • Work ethic: you are hungry to give your hardest effort and your best energies into building a truly successful global business.
  • Take initiatives: we are building a truly global business at NOOSA™ but we are still just a startup. Things are messy here and we are looking for individuals willing to roll up their sleeves, who can prioritise and get things done in such an environment.
  • Curiosity: interest for the textile industry and curiosity to learn everything about it.
  • You are adaptable: and you can put yourself in the shoes of a large workwear group but also a carpet manufacturer as well as a niche fashion designer.
  • You are in your Master’s Degree in Textile Engineering or Textile Material Sciences studies.

3 nice to haves

 

  • You are rigorous and autonomous.
  • You are 100% Humble: You join us to learn as much as you can. You are not afraid by someone else’s success, on the contrary, it drives you.

  •  Learn: you will be given the opportunity to develop, grow and learn a lot about the textile industry and innovative solutions.
  • Entrepreneur mindset: if your dream is to get exposure to different areas of the business and learn how to succeed in any role, we give you the opportunity to understand better the reality of a startup.
  • A young and motivated team: the biggest asset we have is the amazing people we have been able to attract to NOOSA™. You will be able to join a truly international community of people who inspire each other every day and strive to contribute to the mission.
  • A worthy mission: we deeply care about having a positive impact on the world and we have decided to tackle one of the hardest and biggest problems of our times, textile waste and its impact on the environment. If you deeply care about the impact of your work and aren’t satisfied with “just a job”, this is your opportunity to make a difference.
