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.

Various Marketing Roles, AKA The Piggy Whisperers

We are a fast moving food tech start up that is on a mission to help the planet by replacing traditional meat with cultivated meat. With animal agriculture one of the biggest contributors to carbon emission, land use and water usage (bigger than all of transport put together), we can reduce it with up to 90% by growing real meat. We simply take cells from an animal and instead of killing it we grow it in a lab.

As people don’t like change, and with less than 2% vegetarians/vegans, and with a predicted growth in meat consumption of 70% we have a problem. We are running out of planet. But we can help solve it…

So come be part of the ride. It’s a super fun team, a great company and very varied roles. No boring days here! You’ll be proactive, a self starter, good with people and have experience already either working for a brand, start up or in an agency. Our office is in Oxford. Please get in touch if you are interested.
