Colorifix was founded by two synthetic biologists who were developing biological sensors to monitor heavy metal contamination in drinking water in rural Nepal.
While testing these sensors in Kathmandu, Jim and Orr began to learn about the enormous impact of the dyeing industry on water and human health; and realised that, rather than simply monitoring the problem, they had the tools to solve it. With some creativity and a bit of luck, Colorifix was founded in 2016.
We are looking for a Coloration Technician for our pilot dye house in Cambridge. The Technician will gain practical experience of operating a dye house and expertise in our unique biology-based dye technology— this includes both textile coloration and industrial fermentation. The successful candidate may also be offered training which could lead to professional qualifications in this field.
We are looking for someone who is driven to learn new things and explore a real career opportunity in sustainable textile coloration. The role holder will join a diverse, interdisciplinary team and work in a fast-paced environment that brings together biotechnology, fashion, sustainability, and more.
