At Recycleye, we are turning the world’s waste into resource. According to the OECD, only 9% of waste has ever been recycled – but we’re changing that through our development of AI-based sensors combined with robotics that identify and sort a wide range of recyclables. We are transforming the economics behind the $2.5 trillion global waste recycling industry, and we want you to join us!

Founded in 2019, we have experienced rapid growth with technology deployed across Europe and the US and are on a trajectory to continue scaling at pace. To do this, we need more innovators to join our team.

We work together to grow and succeed, driven by our values of empowerment, inclusivity, and perseverance. We want you to come and join our vision of delivering improved efficiency and purity to waste sorting, turning rubbish into a trove of resources.

We now need an Installation Technician to join our busy Operational team and help us deliver on own exciting growth goals. You will play a crucial role in travelling to our deployed robots and maintaining the high quality we guarantee. Working closely both with the hardware team and the projects team, you will be based in our space in London for a bit more than 50% of your time and will be on our client sites for the rest of your time.
