Vacancy Greenhouse Technician

Home > Careers > Vacancy Greenhouse Technician

At Solynta we grow new varieties of potatoes that are more resistant to diseases and drought. We think to have a solution for the shortage of food in the world. Instead of seed potatoes, we use the seed of the potato for this. This has many advantages. For example, seed is much lighter and therefore easier to transport. And seed stays good much longer if you want to store it.

Much of our work takes place in the  greenhouse where the seeds grow into plants. When the plants are big enough, they go out into the field to continue growing there. There are also plants in the greenhouses for further research. We make special crossings here so that the plants can withstand certain conditions (potato) diseases and climate changes. The entire Solynta team is working hard on this and we are looking for colleagues to help us with this in the position of Greenhouse Technician. (24-40 hours p.w.)
