  • Horticulture Production Team Lead (Netherlands) Open or Close

    Naava is a Finland-headquartered health-tech company with 70+ employees in teams currently located in Finland, Sweden, and the US.  Naava is the global leader in biological indoor air purification with over 500 companies as our customers. Naava combines living green plants and technology in a new, disruptive, patented way. 

    Naava’s mission is to reconnect humanity with nature in the built environment, where we, “the indoor generation”, have been alienated from nature, especially in cities.  Naava’s technological & horticultural elements meet in beautiful air-purifying furniture products and the smart and active Naava green walls. The patented Naava solutions have been scientifically found to improve air quality, optimize humidity, enhance health, and increase productivity. 

    The air naturalization effect is based on microbes and their air purification efficiency. Active air circulation and an inorganic growth medium are at the core of the innovation. The growth medium we are using is ideal for the microbes dissolving impurities in the plant's roots. The process is called biofiltration and Naava plant pots are called biofilters. The plants of Naava Green Walls are typical houseplants, such as Philodendron and Dracaena. 

    Biofilter production operations were set up in Aalsmeer in the autumn of 2020, and today we have three full-time employees.  We are now looking for a local team leader to independently run and coordinate the operation with the global team’s support. Until now, the operations have been managed remotely from Finland.

    Are you a self-driven doer and ready for the challenge to join Naava and help us to run a production of these high-quality and high-performance biofilters in Aalsmeer, Holland?
