Manufacturing Specialist

Overview

The Botnia Manufacturing Specialist is an organized, details expert who ensures that every product is made to our standards and that our orders are well cared for in the shipping process–an instruction following, details lover who likes to make sure people receive our products feeling satisfied and impressed.  

 

We are looking for that special someone who will follow effective proprietary recipes and that is passionate about organizing, planning, and caring, clear communication. This person is a self-defined doer and a natural at multi-project management.

 

A little history and background about Botnia: The business is in its beginning with our launch in 2017, a 300% growth in 2018 and an increased growth planned for 2019. It was created to provide the world with more individualized, organic skincare that really works. With a beautiful production garden located in Marin County, a career at Botnia offers an opportunity to make a significant impact and be an original team member in a start-up with proven, massive growth potential.

 

We strive to be the favorite product line for estheticians and home consumers alike, who deeply value health and sustainability. To do this, we need a group of exceptionally warm, creative, and hard-working people who are committed to impeccable service and teamwork.

 

As our Manufacturing Specialist, you do not need to know our exact systems before you start, but you need to be a forest + trees thinker, able to jump in and develop solutions where needed. People who are not self-starters, not flexible, not open to feedback, nor great communicators need not apply. You are meant for this role if you are excited about a fast-paced, multi-layered job, a detail-obsessed and organized problem-solver with an interest in and appreciation for natural beauty and health.

 

Ultimately, we are looking for someone who makes multi-tasking look easy, who is eager to support our founder and customers, and who is whole-heartedly enthusiastic about growing with our business. If this is you, we can’t wait to meet you!

This is a full-time role that offers 40 hours per week.

 

Warmly, 

Justine Kahn, Founder and Owner
