London, United Kingdom

As an intern at Matoha, you will help us with developing, manufacturing and selling our disruptive products - low-cost near-infrared machines to help the world sort out the huge amount of plastic and fabric waste provided. Each tonne of fabric or plastic waste recycled (for which using identification machines such as ours is essential) helps conserve natural resources and prevents pollution from being released - helping save the planet, one machine at a time.

As we are a small company, your work will have a real positive impact - on the planet and on our company. You will collaborate with our young and dynamic team - we expect you to be proactive, able to work independently and have a "get it done" spirit.

There are various areas of work you could take part in (see Responsibilities) and your help will be utilised based on your relevant skills, experience and interests.

The start / finish time is flexible and the work is partially remote (for tasks which can be done remotely) and partially in person in our office in London SE15.
