What
if
you
could change
more than
just your job?

Working at Ivy Farm, you’ll be helping transform how the world eats for the better. You’ll be contributing to a sustainable meat company, grounded in breakthrough cell technology and founded on the belief that science can improve our planet. Right now, we’re on the lookout for more brilliant people to join our ‘growing’ team.  

You’ll love asking ‘what if’, love animals and have time for the odd nerdy joke (see previous sentence for reference).

In return, we offer progressive benefits, a culture built on kindness, and the promise that you’ll never run out of interesting things to say at a dinner party.
