About Greyparrot:

The world is in a waste crisis. Currently, we produce 2.1 billion tons of solid waste per year. Data collection of the waste we produce is non-existent, meaning no systematic transparency and no accountability. It means that recycling targets are not upheld, dumping of waste into our oceans remains nobody's responsibility, recyclables get sent to landfill or incineration, and producers get away with sub-standard packaging. Thus, recycling rates stubbornly remain at 10% and, unless we change, by 2040 the plastic stock in the ocean will have quadrupled - a problem that already costs society $1.5 trillion each year.

Our mission is to increase transparency and automation in waste management to accelerate the circular economy. Currently, our camera system and AI software are deployed in recycling plants and waste facilities around the world to measure material flows and provide waste analytics. We have compiled a team of experts to deploy our technology and weโ€™re looking to expand our team.


  1. 2+ years experience in an operations, talent or administration role at a startup (e.g., less than 100 people)

  4. Excellent organisational and communication skills
  5. Ability to work in a fast-paced environment with the confidence to work independently, prioritise responsibilities, and manage time efficiently
  6. Ability to be based in the office, at 5 days per week
  7. Passion for addressing the waste crisis or other environmental issues
