Our mission is to make biology easier to engineer.



Our mission is to make biology easier to engineer.  Ginkgo is constructing, editing, and redesigning the living world in order to answer the globe’s growing challenges in health, energy, food, materials, and more.  Our bioengineers make use of an in-house automated foundry for designing and building new organisms.  In addition to the broad set of commercial projects that Ginkgo is developing, we’ve also rapidly adapted our platform to respond to COVID-19, working to optimize nucleic acid vaccine manufacturing, helping develop antibody therapeutics, and launching a full-scale testing service, Concentric by Ginkgo.

  • Plan and measure:  Own aspects of Ginkgo’s periodic financial planning, budgeting, forecasting, and reporting processes.  Continuously drive improvements in clarity, accuracy, and efficiency.  
  • Build the infrastructure:  Test, implement, scale, and adapt company-wide FP&A processes and systems to deliver valuable business insights for both internal and external stakeholders.  
  • Drive financial literacy:  Act as a change agent to transition Ginkgo’s company-wide financial literacy from startup to mature enterprise.
  • Model:  Own long-term financial modeling for certain business areas, and Ginkgo as a whole, by incorporating a deep understanding of business drivers.
  • Special projects:  Assist with evaluating and navigating key initiatives, business models, risks, and opportunities as they arise across Ginkgo’s commercial, capital planning, and corporate development operations.

We also feel that it’s important to point out the obvious here – there’s a serious lack of diversity in our industry, and that needs to change. Our goal is to help drive that change. Ginkgo is deeply committed to diversity, equality, and inclusion in all of its practices, especially when it comes to growing our team. Our culture promotes inclusion and embraces how rewarding it is to work with people from all walks of life.  

We’re developing a powerful biological engineering platform, we must remain mindful of the many ways our technology can – and will – impact people around the world. We care about how our platform is used, and having a diverse team to build it gives us the best chance that it’s something we’ll be proud of as it continues to grow. Therefore, it’s critical that we incorporate the diverse voices and visions of all those who play a role in the future of biology.

It is the policy of Ginkgo Bioworks to provide equal employment opportunities to all employees and employment applicants.
