Interested in working for Lethal Cosmetics? We are excited to get to know you! Please find our current openings below. If you would like to apply, please send an email with your resumé to email@example.com.
Production Assistant (m/f/d)*
Who we are
Lethal Cosmetics is an independent, PETA-certified vegan and cruelty-free makeup brand from Berlin, Germany. We produce professional-quality color cosmetics for an alternative audience of ethical makeup-addicts.
If you love makeup, you’ll love making it! As a Production Assistant, you’ll be working as part of a team to press, fill, pack and label our products. It’s fun and challenging work that will keep you busy and moving all day. Our experienced production staff will show you the ins and outs of making eyeshadows, liquid lipsticks and lip glosses and you’ll be the first to get your hands on our new products (literally), long before they are shipped to our customers around the world. If you enjoy being hands-on and don’t mind getting a bit messy every now and then, this is the right job for you!
What we are looking for
We are looking for energetic, positive people who are passionate about makeup and excited to join a young and fast-growing start-up driven by strong values. Making makeup requires both dexterity and an eye for detail as well as physical strength and stamina. While we have machines that do much of the heavy lifting, you should be okay with being on your feet for extended periods of time and with occasionally lifting or moving containers or equipment weighing 20 kg or more. Hygiene and cleanliness are of the utmost importance when making cosmetics and you will be expected to meticulously follow procedures and practices as well as exercise good judgement. Previous experience in cosmetic manufacturing are not required but a background in hospitality, catering or healthcare is a plus. Other things we are looking for are:
- Diligence, cleanliness and a sense of order
- Fine motor skills and good hand-eye-coordination (you’ll be working with small fragile products like our eyeshadows)
- Fluency in German or English (written and spoken)
- Confidence with basic mathematics (weighing, counting, multiplying)
- Reliability and dependability
What we have to offer
Lethal Cosmetics is a unique, fun and exhilarating place to work! We are an equal opportunity employer and celebrate diversity in all its forms. If you choose to work for us, you can expect the following benefits:
- Competitive Compensation
- Flexible hours
- Preferred consideration for future full-time positions
- Complementary tea, coffee and all the homemade fruit-infused water you can drink
- Delicious selection of fruit waiting to be snacked during your breaks
- Generous employee discounts and regular freebies
- Cafeteria in walking distance with affordable lunch options (or use our break room equipped with a fridge and microwave)
- Free employee parking
This is an open-ended “Minijob” (450 Euro/Month) position for 12 hours per week, working Tuesday-Thursday.
Our production facility is located in Berlin-Köpenick (Germany), a short walk from the “Wuhlheide” S-Bahn station and the Bus line 190. Plenty of free parking is also available.
We are always on the lookout for amazing talent to join our team! If none of the positions above apply to you, please send us your resumé and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also consider applications for internships and working student positions.
*We reject binary gender labels. However, German legislation requires us to put “m/f” behind the job title. We use the addition “d” for “diverse” to indicate that we do not believe this categorization is sufficient.
