Product Design Intern

About InstaGreen

InstaGreen is an Urban Farming startup in Barcelona. We are taking the first steps to build a global business that provides the healthiest and freshest local urban food, in a sustainable and commercially viable way.

Simply put: we grow food in the city.

We cultivate microgreens, herbs and leafy vegetables in so-called hydroponic systems. When our plants are ready for consumption, we bring them to our clients (usually restaurants) where they are placed in our special InstaGreen displays until they are harvested for consumption.

Product Design Internship

We are looking for handy hands and brilliant brains for the industrial design parts of our R&D processes. We have developed and tested a hydroponic system in which we cultivate our plants with success and we have made displays for restaurants, to keep the plants alive there.

Based on the tests and user feedback we improved the system and displays and we are now building new prototypes to put to the test.

The next step is to further elaborate these designs to industrial production level. And these are exciting times since we will be moving to a new and larger space where we want to start using this improved hydroponic system!

So, we are looking for someone with good technological design skills who will work with us on translating insights into great industrial products.
