Human Resources Generalist – PT (20-25 hrs/week)

About Us -

WISErg, a startup company located in Redmond, Washington, is a bio-clean technology company combining systems from bio-tech, clean-tech and high-tech.

The Problem

Landfills have become huge problems. Communities everywhere are saying, “Not in my backyard!” 

We here at WISErg are turning this into a bio-clean solution that communities will not only be happy to have in their backyards but at the same time use our products on their backyards.

The Solution: WISErg’s Process

We are combining biological science, mechanical engineering and software engineering into a solution that converts landfill bound food waste into a highly productive organic fertilizer.  The food waste is captured at grocery stores by a WISErg Harvester where it is processed odor and pest free into a liquid.  This liquid is transported to a WISErg HUB where it goes through an enclosed biological process and processed into organic fertilizer.  The fertilizer is used by farmers to grow even bigger, better tasting food that is sold back to the grocery stores or farmers markets. We are making a difference in our communities and the planet we live on.
