Ginkgo Bioworks is the organism company. We design custom organisms for customers across multiple markets. We build our foundries to scale the process of organism engineering using software and hardware automation. Organism engineers at Ginkgo learn from nature to develop new organisms that replace technology with biology. Biology is the most advanced manufacturing technology on the planet. Self-assembling, self-replicating, and self-repairing, biology builds renewably—from the molecular machines inside of cells to global ecosystems. We’re inspired by the power of biology and driven to build tools that make it possible to access that power in new ways. If you’re passionate about engineering with biology, this is where you should be.

Reporting to the Head of People, the Director of People Operations will play a crucial role in ensuring the talent strategies and tactics necessary for creating and maintaining an extraordinary place to work are implemented effectively. The successful candidate will be someone who brings technical excellence, a passion for achievement, a strong service orientation, creativity and exceptional process-building and process-management skills.
