Job description

About Greyparrot:

The world is in a waste crisis. Currently, we produce 2.1 billion tons of solid waste per year. Data collection of the waste we produce is non-existent, meaning no systematic transparency and no accountability. As a result, recycling targets are not upheld, dumping of waste into our oceans remains nobody's responsibility, recyclables get sent to landfill or incineration, and producers get away with sub-standard packaging. By 2040 the plastic stock in the ocean will have quadrupled - a problem that already costs society $1.5 trillion every year.

Our mission at Greyparrot is to digitise waste to increase transparency and efficiency in recycling by providing data analytics to sorting centres, packaging producers and regulators. Currently, our camera system and AI software are deployed in recycling plants and waste facilities, like A2A, around the world to measure material flows and provide waste analytics. We made significant progress in 2021 - a summary of the highlights can be viewed here and a video of the latest robotic application of our product can be viewed here. We’re looking for a Data Analyst to further accelerate our efforts.
