Job Description

 Nyco Products – R&D Formulation Chemist

You notice the particulars others don’t. Nyco Products is on the move for an experienced R&D/Formulation Chemist who refuses to settle for good enough. The individual that will join our fast paced team has no issues with accuracy and accountability because you hold yourself to high standards and expect the same from others.

At Nyco Products, the R&D/Formulation Chemist is a very important position. Constantly on the move, you’ll be responsible for conducting laboratory testing for the development of various aqueous compounds including surfactants, disinfectants and emulsion floor coatings.  The right candidate will have this experience as well as skills in chemical testing procedures required to review and maintain quality control of incoming raw materials as well as on finished products for internal quality control and regulatory compliance.   If it looks wrong it probably is. If the product doesn’t match the work order, you’re on the phone. If safety and security is sacrificed, you’re solving the problem. If it’s messy, you have it cleaned up. If it’s not square, it’s not right, and you won’t stop until it is.

We’re looking for the perfect R&D/Formulation Chemist who spends each day challenging yourself and others around you. Because at the end of the day, your name is on your work and you stand behind it because you know you’ve done your best and won’t settle for anything less.

R&D/Formulation Chemist Essential Responsibilities:

  • Creates, develops, and tests compounds and formulas used in products, exercising professional judgment in the evaluation, selection, and modification of applied methods and techniques.

  • Utilizes chemicals, chemical compounds, and chemical processes to create new products.

  • Investigate and evaluate competitor’s products by performing analysis of competing products/formulations. Communicate results with sale’s team.

  • Determine physical and chemical properties of new products, pH, flash point, density, and viscosity for new or modified formulas.

  • Provide support to the manufacturing processes by giving guidance to adjust batch formulations if a batch is not within product specifications.

  • Identifies and recommends improvements to processes to maintain quality, cost-effectiveness, safety compliance, and other parameters.

  • Ensures compliance with environmental health and safety standards including the proper handling, storage, and disposal of chemical agents.

    R&D/Formulation Chemist Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree (B.A.) or (B.S.) from four-year college or university with an emphasis in Chemistry; and three to five years related experience and/or training; equivalent combination of education and experience as a formulation chemist.     

  • Preferred industry experience in chemical industry - soaps/detergents, disinfectants/sanitizers.

If this sounds like you, we would like to talk with you about joining our team as R&D/Formulation Chemist!

If you want to put your accuracy to work for a company that appreciates your gift, take a calculated risk.

We are looking for an impact player who is proactive, detailed, and tenacious and offer a generous hourly wage commensurate with experience.

  • Serious Applicants only
