Salary Unpaid
Equity To be negotiated

Do you want to make an impact? Are you a driven individual who can strategically navigate, execute, and achieve commercial success? Become a part of a visionary startup that makes an impact in the textile industry! 

The co-founders Milan and Barbora have been shifting the textile industry since 2022. Milan’s textile engineering background and upcycling expertise and Barbora’s business skills achieved to build a successful start-up upcycling deadstock textiles and materials for other businesses. 

By joining OUR SHIFT, you have the opportunity to take the business to the next level and turn the start-up into a scale-up.

Industry changemaker

OUR SHIFT is a circular textiles company developing a holistic consultancy business that assists companies with their transition to a circular business model. By reusing their excess textiles and materials, OUR SHIFT enables companies to create products of higher value and limits their textile waste. Currently, our biggest client is a well-known car manufacturer and there are more significant leads in progress. So far, we have worked with organizations and companies such as Roskilde Festival, Vans, Danish Architecture Center, Holmris B8, and more.

Industry Opportunity

OUR SHIFT builds on the global problem of increasing textile waste and the current situation in the EU countries. In contrast, new legislation will strictly regulate textile production, handling deadstock, and discarding textiles. From 2025, companies residing in or importing into the EU and producing any textile products will be affected by these regulations. This creates an enormous opportunity for OUR SHIFT to help companies use their excess textiles.

Within the next 2 years, we aim to become an established holistic consultancy serving a portion of large companies in the Nordics and move to the EU market. 

OUR SHIFT is built on a strong background of an upcycling brand making them experts on circularity in the textile industry with strong client relations. The time and place are right, we just need the right team.
