Full Time

This is a great opportunity to join a company who have just recently built a new R&D and Production centre after a significant period of re-investment in one of their German subsidiaries based in the Bielefeld area of Germany. As part of a broader strategy to grow their market share in Wood Coatings they are currently hiring for three Coatings Developers to work in their brand new laboratory & production facility, developing the next generation of waterborne and UV curable coatings systems.

You will be joining a firmly established family-owned company with over 50 years of history in the Paints & Coatings industry and over 1,400 employees worldwide across their 11 subsidiaries. With a strong brand-reputation and extensive opportunities to develop yourself professionally, it's a great place to boost your CV and build a strong employment profile whilst also allowing you to create a long-term career with options to progress in the future if you stay-on with the company, allowing you to achieve your goals.

As a part of the Research & Development team you will be working in one of 2 Laboratory Groups either developing UV Curable coating systems or Wateborne coating systems for wood substrates. Both teams offer independent working with a high level of autonomy but in a close-knit team environment which provides a good level of support in your day-to-day work, giving you the freedom to work under your own-steam but the security to know what to concentrate on.

Your role will mainly focus around formulations development (around 70%), but you will also get to travel approximately 3-4 days per month to customers to conduct applications testing and provide technical support, allowing you to develop customer skills whilst building your expertise in R&D.


  • Qualification as Lacklaborant or Lacktechniker
  • 2+ years experience in Research & Development
  • Hands-on formulations development experience of Hydro-UV coating systems
  • Languages: German at minimum B2 level required for daily use; English at a conversational level
