About us

Did you know that we are called one (point) five because of the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees, compared to pre-industrial levels!?

Plastic packaging makes up 40% of all our plastic waste, putting a huge strain on our environment. With one • fıve, we want to solve this problem by developing novel packaging proven to be good for the environment. In fact, many unused ideas for sustainable packaging are already slumbering in our universities and research institutes. However, these are often not sufficiently developed to be produced (yet). We find these technologies, refine them and thus make them easily usable for existing packaging producers. In this way, we want to quickly transform the packaging market and make a significant contribution in the fight against climate change.

We are a mission-driven business with BIG goals!

Flexible working at one • fıve

We are a global team spread across multiple locations and time zones. This makes strict work hours silly, even at the best of times.

We all have personal lives that will sometimes affect our day-to-day work hours. We trust our team to make the right choices to get their job done, as long as they live our values.

Speaking of values ours are:
Duty to care: care for yourself, your colleagues, your work, our office, and ultimately, our planet.

Create with intent: work with a goal in mind. Ask yourself what you are trying to achieve and constantly evaluate whether your current path is the best way to achieve this goal.

Acknowledge the process: we celebrate our failures and successes together and keep iterating to improve.

Transparency: all knowledge available to everyone.

"We are NOT fully remote, we still deeply value time in person"

Remote First
We want to empower and trust every individual to own their journey with us and make the most potential impact. This can look like working when and wherever suits your current needs, so the company and the team can benefit from your best work.

We will get together twice a year for Summer & Winter Camp to connect as a team, in our Hamburg offices. There are also adhoc colocation weeks in smaller groups, because sometimes it's just easier to get something sorted in a focused in-person session.

Though we do our best to allow everyone to work flexibly, some roles will be location or time specific, which will be specified in employment contracts. 

Approach to diversity & inclusion

We are very proud of the culture we have built to support diversity & inclusion and will do everything we can to continue to be an inclusive company where all team members are comfortable, supported and empowered to succeed. 

We seek to ensure that all employees are afforded equal opportunities and treatment, irrespective of any qualifier, in all aspects of recruitment, employment, training and determination of benefits. 

For sake of clarity, all team members and candidates will receive equal treatment regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. 

What do we think of one • fıve?

one • fıve has a really impressive set of benefits, and a fantastic working environment. The location and hours scores are incredibly impressive - we love to see it!
