enEvolv engineers microorganisms to produce bio-based products. We work with partners in therapeutics, nutrition, energy, and specialty chemicals to improve existing strains and develop novel ones. Our technologies harness and accelerate evolution – enabling us to build and screen genomic designs in massive parallel.
We’re passionate about finding elegant solutions to complex biological problems. Our team is what makes enEvolv who we are. We’re looking for highly collaborative people who value initiative and inventiveness. If you’re somebody who loves to build, loves to create, and wants to have a good time while doing it, we’d love to meet you.
