Plastic Bank empowers Ocean Stewards to stop ocean plastic. Our collection community members exchange plastic for life-improving benefits. Exchanges are recorded through a blockchain-secured platform that enables traceable collection, secures income, and verifies reporting. Collected material is processed into Social Plastic feedstock for reuse in products and packaging. This creates a closed-loop supply chain while helping those who collect it. We are currently operating in the Philippines, Indonesia, Brazil and Egypt. So far, our collectors have prevented more than 40 million kilograms of plastic from entering the ocean and we have recently reached the milestone of collecting the equivalent of over two billion plastic bottles. We offer passionate professionals the opportunity to enrich your career and be a part of a purpose driven company that makes changing the world fun. It is a unique opportunity to have a truly global impact in environmental and socio-economic regeneration, all on the backbone of blockchain technology platform.



You will be an integral part of ensuring that our communities can use the Plastic Bank app as a starting point to a better life!

Closely working with the digital team internationally as well locally with our regional team, you will contribute to the continual improvement of our web and digital properties in an agile environment. Our digital blockchain platform is ever-evolving and utilizes an app for our members and partners, with an online back-end administration, reporting and auditing system for our team.

Our certified collection branches and recycling processors use the app to record real-time exchanges from registered members that capture all the required data for reporting, inventory control, reward distribution, fraud prevention, auditing and account management. Our blockchain system enables us to exchange plastic for a digital token bonus on top of the market rate of plastic to our collectors. This also provides a digital ID and savings account for vulnerable communities. Our advanced level of traceability and social impact programs enable us to sell the plastic collected throughout our ethical supply chains as Social Plastic® for our global partners to proudly use as recycled feedstock in their products. The position is fully remote - however you are always welcome to join us at the office.
