To lead the transition to sustainable materials.



We’re Genomatica. You can call us Geno, for short. We’re based in San Diego, California, but have team members around the world. We believe that a shared purpose and sense of trust make our work more enjoyable and fulfilling. We aspire to provide a safe and inclusive environment, welcoming diverse perspectives and creative ideas — where mistakes are recognized as learning opportunities for growth. Geno is a place to explore science’s role in solving some of the world’s greatest climate challenges, together. At Geno, all employees are celebrated and valued for who they are, not just what they do. We stand for empowering real, lasting change within our workplace, industry, and global community. Geno strives to create a supportive culture enabling each of us to bring our fullest sense of self into our work. Centering personal development and collective wellbeing as core workplace ethics, we are committed to being a company where everyone has an equal opportunity to reach their highest potential. We promote the continued development of an inclusive environment that values diversity through Geno4All, our employee-led Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committees.  As part of the Geno community, you can look forward to weekly lunches, product tests and tastings, inspiring guest speakers, passionate teammates, energizing conversations, team sports, and the rewarding feeling that comes with seeing our materials and ingredients in the products you love. We’re on a mission to accelerate the global transition to sustainable materials. We take this mission — to be a (big) part of solving the climate crisis — seriously. And we have a lot of fun along the way. Feel like you’d be a good fit? Join us.
