PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT MANAGER
Ocean Bottle exists to enable anyone that gives a damn about this planet the opportunity to help turn the tap off ocean plastic. We have some great backing behind us, big ambitions and want you to help us achieve them. This is an opportunity to come join a brand that is going to change the world for the better.
We have two fundamental beliefs as a company, that the impact we create and the products we develop should be uncompromising. Our impact is 25x any equivalent product on the market and our first multi award winning product has been recently dubbed by the Times “If Apple were to design a drinks container for life, this would be it”. The goal is now to continue down this path and take it to the next level.
Since launching in January 2019 Ocean Bottle has shipped nearly 100k units out into the world, collected 1,026,940kgs of plastic and improved livelihoods at the same time. By 2025 our goal is to fund collection equivalent to 7 billion plastic bottles from entering the ocean. Will you help us get there?
