Protein Extraction & Process Engineering


Do you want to ...?

At Fabas we’re fueled by a simple yet powerful mission: to develop pulse-based products everyone enjoys.

We kicked off our start-up journey in 2021 with consumer products made of pulses grown by «our» farmers in Switzerland, to increase our impact we are now focusing on pulse-based ingredients for the industry.

«We», that’s currently Anik, Katharina and Lena – and maybe you will be a part of «us» soon?

We do not just want to meet the standards with our pulse-based ingredients. By combining novel extraction and fermentation techniques we want to set a new benchmark regarding quality, sustainability, and taste.

We’re not about making noise and enforcing a food revolution; we believe that it’s a subtle shift that has the power to change the way we eat. Get on board now, if you are ready to build the basis for a new generation of plant-based products with us!


Do you know how to...?

Now that you have an idea of who we are, let’s check if your needs and our needs align:


For us it is a given that you want to have an impact on the way we eat and farm in the future and that you are a «foodie at heart».

We are looking for someone who is ready to contribute their experience and knowledge to help shape and develop innovative food technology. Do you want to take over responsibility, lead your own projects (in collaboration with Katharina, our CTO) and organize your work independently?


If you can answer these questions with a whole-hearted yes, let’s move on, to what you need to know in order to thrive at Fabas: 

Do you know how to think "out-of-the-box" to innovatively improve our processes and technologies? Do you know how to apply your knowledge in food processing, in application development and in food physics for the development of innovative products? And last but not least are you able to work efficiently and on your own initiative? Start-up life is amazing, if you can handle working independently – it is probably not as much fun for people who prefer to stay on familiar ground.


Ideally, you have...

If you made it as far and you can also tick the following boxes, you might be match for us:

  • an education in the field of food technology, process engineering, biology, biochemistry, biotechnology or similar;

  • Experience in the field of protein extraction, extrusion and generally with plant proteins & substitute products;

  • Experience in product development and scaling up industrial processes;

  • and of course an open, curious, proactive approach to life and work.

Does that sound like you?

If this sounds like the perfect challenge for you, get in touch and introduce yourself!

We are looking forward to receiving your application!
