As part of a young and vibrant R&D team of 12 people who are mainly under 35 years of age, you'll be working with highly motivated young professionals who are constantly learning from each other and pooling their knowledge to help each other become technical experts across a broad range of coating systems, so it's a great environment to learn and make great professional friendships.

As part of this growing team, you will be responsible for matching colour and tinting systems for over 400 products in the range, ensuring product quality and working with the production team to ensure specification are met, allowing you to develop knowledge of pilot-plant scale up and quality systems.

Based in Ludwigshafen in the Rhine Neckar area of Germany, you will be a great place to develop your career in the future as there are a number of well established coatings manufacturers in the area with a range of different opportunities coming up on a regular basis, ensuring you are in the ideal location to progress and develop in the future.


  • Practical training as Lacklaborant or a Degree in Chemistry

  • Strong practical knowledge and know-how of colour matching
