About LifeFuels

Every great idea begins with a problem. Ours began with a struggle to get what our bodies wanted, when we wanted it. We've been fortunate that life has taken us many places; remote descents in the backcountry, last-minute goals on the pitch, dusty roads in rural Africa, and boardrooms around the world, but access to hydration and healthy nutrition has always been a challenge. That’s why we banded together to create LifeFuels, to give our bodies what they need via great-tasting, personalized functional beverages, without compromising our lifestyles. The journey hasn’t been easy (electronics and water aren’t always the best of friends), but through vigorously detailed engineering and meticulous attention to design, we’ve built a product we truly love. We’re thrilled for you to join us on this adventure, and to welcome you to the LifeFuels family.

What you'll do:

We are looking for a hands-on, entrepreneurial, and passionate Food and Beverage Scientist, who loves to create new products, and is looking for a unique opportunity to help launch an entirely new category of beverages. The position is full-time (40 hours plus per week), and will focus on developing and perfecting a new line, and successive lines, of beverage concentrates to work with the LifeFuels Bottle. It will also involve product and market research and testing, quality control/assurance, and a working knowledge of applicable regulations and industry best practices.

About you:
