At Bardee, our ambition is to reshape the global food system. To do this, we breed billions of insects 🐛 to transform food waste 🥗 into insect protein for animal feed 🐶 and fertiliser 🌲 in our world-leading vertical farming system ~ learn more about what we do here.
In 2022, we aim to divert 20,000 tonnes of food waste from landfill, and scale our production volumes of insect protein and fertiliser going into sustainable animal feed and fertiliser products by x10.
You will work closely with our CTO & General Manager 3-5 days per week to ensure the safety, maintenance and productivity of our facility at Sunshine North. Examples of some of the work you will do:
We’re doing something truly special at Bardee. You’ll be joining a formidable team of insect-obsessed, solutions-focused, big picture thinkers who thrive on constantly innovating.
In two years we’ve evolved from breeding flies in a stinky bucket, with popsicle sticks in the backyard – yes, this happened 😂, to pitching tents on a university campus, to commissioning our 2,500 sqm automated facility. Now we’re preparing to open new and even larger facilities across Australia.
Without giving too much away, our science team achieves world-first results and has smashed our moonshot goals for 2021… by September 🤯
You’ll be doing work that matters to you, Bardee and the world. The success of our General Manager will directly impact our ability to scale, cohesion of our teams working onsite and the logistics of our product operations.
Everyone at Bardee owns a slice of the company, and your vesting schedule and share options are always accessible and transparent.
We’re building a sustainable future we’ll be proud to hand on to future generations. Every tonne of Bardee’s insect protein offsets 50 tonnes of CO2e emissions.
We’re a startup that gets stuff done. And when we decide to do something, we do it well. We love to move quickly to delight our customers.
We set ambitious goals and we’re infinitely resourceful to achieve them. Sometimes that looks like chopping tuna heads into insect food in a uni car park.
Here’s what we’re looking for:

Ultimately this role will be shaped around the right candidate. If the mission inspires you and you believe you are the right person for the job, we want to speak with you.

We believe that building a diverse and inclusive team is critical to Bardee’s success. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, or marital, veteran, or disability status. Come as you are.
