This opportunity as Basecoats Developer is one of 3 brand new positions which have recently opened with a company that develop, manufacture and sell their own range of Automotive Coatings to the OEM market. The company have recently been bought by one of the biggest Coatings manufacturers worldwide and are going through a huge phase of re-investment which has allowed them to put more finance in their development team to help them stay competitive in one of the most challenging market environments in the Paints & Coatings sector.

With a wave of new hires across R&D, Applications and Sales you will be part of a company who are growing at a time of stagnation in the Automotive Coatings sector. Having hired two new talented developers to join the Basecoats team last year they are taking on 3 new developers for 2017, allowing them to develop a greater range of products and be more reactive to changes in customer demand, helping them to hold on to key business accounts and develop greater revenue streams which will be the key to further success and growth in the future.

As Basecoats Developer you will have the opportunity to develop water-based coatings which will be sold to Automotive OEMs in Germany and across Europe and part of your role will be to perform applications testing and development, working with engineering teams on-site at some of the best known OEM companies worldwide, allowing you to build and develop a strong professional network in this area.

With most of your time dedicated to development work in the laboratory (70%) your core focus will be formulations development, helping re-develop older coating systems whilst working on a new generation of cutting-edge coatings systems which will launch later in 2017, allowing you to stay at the forefront of the industry by developing knowledge of the newest systems on the market.


  • Qualification as Lacklaborant
  • 2 years experience in coatings development
  • Experience with Automotive Basecoats preferred
  • Strong technical knowledge of formulating & developing water-based coating systems
  • B2 level German
