LET’S REIMAGINE WASTE TOGETHER

We are looking for a Polymer Engineer – an extrusion specialist – who wants to make a difference with their talent.

Someone who knows the ins and outs of plastic. Someone who can extrude almost anything. Someone who likes to solve complex problems in uncertain environments.

Someone who wants to build something special, something that bends our society’s moral arch more towards justice.

Someone who is willing to take a risk.

WORKING AT ASHAYA

Ashaya is not just another social enterprise or non-profit or start-up. We are an amalgamation of all that and a lot more.

Our why, our values, our guiding principles and our mission are absolute pillars in our journey to make deep, meaningful impact.

Right now, we are a small but passionate team, so our work culture is evolving as we speak. We don’t believe in hierarchy and are attempting to build an environment of self-management.

We believe the following traits are currently fuelling our evolution:

PACE

We know we are moving quickly, but it still feels too slow. We want to move faster. We want to compress many years of research into one. But at the same time, we don’t want to break things along the way. Help us find our pace.

OUTCOME

We are outcome-focused. By that we mean it doesn’t really matter how many hours you work, it’s what you do with those hours that matters. Work hours are flexible. Our outcomes, not as much.

EXPLICIT

We are super transparent. There’s no point in sweeping conflicts under a rug. We don’t have much to hide from each other and are consistently evaluating our work, our feelings and our differences. We are our biggest critics.

GROUNDED

No task is too small or too big for any of us to do. At the same time, we play to our strengths, optimizing for the greater goal we are seeking to achieve, all the while keeping our minds open to diverse perspectives.

WHO WOULD BE A GOOD FIT

Ashaya is just getting started but the ethos of Ashaya has been in process for over three years. There is clarity in its vision and its mission after years of field and secondary research. But there is still a lot more to figure out.

Primarily, the skill-gap that needs to be filled is around polymers and extrusion. We are seeking someone who brings in engineering experience, specifically around the art that is plastic extrusion.

If all that resonated with you, and if you have what it takes to reimagine waste, then come, let’s do this.
