Nanobubbles are extremely small gas bubbles with unique properties that make them a superior aeration method, enabling a radical change in the economics of aquaculture, horticulture, metal separation, wastewater treatment and oil recovery.

The company, which is based in California, is on a mission to unlock the full potential of nanobubbles to enhance and protect water, food and natural resources.

Geographically, the main focus will be on Norway, Denmark, Scotland and Southern Europe. Residents of any country in the EU are encouraged to apply.

The role will involve supporting customers, distributors and independent contractors with sales materials and educating them on the proper use of the company’s products. Areas of interest are aeration, gas transfer, water quality, fish health and productivity – in both offshore and land-based aquaculture facilities.

The ideal candidate should enjoy travelling and proactively developing and maintaining relationships in markets. The job will provide a high level of freedom, responsibility and the ability to grow on an interpersonal level.
