Ginkgo Introduction 

Our mission is to make biology easier to engineer. Ginkgo is constructing, editing, & redesigning the living world in order to answer the globe's growing challenges in health, energy, food, materials, & more. Our bioengineers make use of an in-house automated foundry for designing & building new organisms. 

Team Introduction (optional)

The Ginkgo Sociotechnical Studio is a multidisciplinary team designing & communicating the future of synthetic biology. We work at the intersection of design, technology, biology, art, & communications. Although we're immersed in this incredible technology, we also recognize that synthetic biology is not always an easy thing to communicate - or understand. We're passionate about finding new ways to tell the story of synthetic biology, through creative marketing, PR, digital interfaces like, social media like our Twitter account, creative projects in museums, booths at conferences, workshops & community building events, our annual event Ferment, & our magazine Grow by Ginkgo. We're not only vision-setters who spend our time dreaming of possibilities but also go-getters who make those ideas a reality.

The Studio works across Ginkgo's divisions by creating reusable & extensible materials to support the creative & communication needs of internal teams. The Studio works closely with Ginkgo's commercial teams including the Business Development & Growth teams as well as Ginkgo's leadership to develop the best strategies for customer acquisition, public engagement, & growing the bioeconomy.

If you don't meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role's requirements.
