Production Operative - Tonejet

  • Location
    Cambridge, United Kingdom


The artwork on a can of craft beer is usually as appealing as the drink itself. It’s often innovative, edgy, and unique - just like Tonejet’s revolutionary beverage printing technology. You could contribute to our research and development process by joining us as a Production Operative.

You’ll be joining us as we journey into the next stage of growth - creating new machines for customers in the UK, Canada and the USA. It’s interesting, innovative, and technically challenging work.

From day one, you’ll get to specialise in the preparation of bespoke inks and coatings - from laboratory scale through to manufacture. It’s physically demanding but highly enjoyable work. And you’ll constantly learn and develop new skills as a key member of the close-knit Ink & Coatings Team.

On any given day, you could be involved a wide range of responsibilities; from carrying out analytical measurements on samples, through to coordinating the ink production for internal and external customers. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn how to prepare pigment dispersions and coatings as well as set up, operate, maintain and clean the production equipment as you work alongside our Ink Scientists. You’ll be tasked with overseeing the smooth, safe and efficient running of the lab, including helping keeping the laboratory and production area tidy, well stocked and safe.


You’ll be guided by supportive colleagues and clear Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) - so you’ll soon pick up the process. And whenever you have an idea about how to improve a procedure or find an efficiency; we want to hear it – from the get-go, you’ll be a valued member of the team.

If you’ve got previous laboratory experience and/or have worked in a chemical production environment where inks or other fluid formulations are prepared, your application will have a distinct edge. If you enjoy carrying out hands-on lab and production procedures in a methodical, safe way, whilst following SOP’s; this is the role for you.
