For help growing our Brewing business in Middle East & Africa (MEA) we are looking for a highly skilled and motivated Industry Technology Specialist to be located in Kenya or Nigeria – alternatively another Central African country.

You will play a key role in understanding customer needs and be responsible for initiating and coordinating technical activities. In close cooperation with R&D and Sales & Marketing you will ensure professional project management and help to translate market needs into innovation leads for Novozymes.
