Vow is a food company -- a very different one. We’re creating real meat products from animal cells, instead of the animal itself. We’re bringing together cutting edge innovations in science, technology, culinary and design to make sustainable food that’s both irresistible and available to billions of people worldwide.
The work that we are doing is a critical step on the path to creating a future where humans can exist in sustainable harmony with our planet. A world we can proudly hand over to our children and grandchildren. We are achieving this by creating sustainable food that is the most delicious, desirable choice of anything available. This is a mission we believe in deeply.
As a company we’re 16 months old. We have a growing team of 16 hard-working people who genuinely look out for each other and we are fully funded to tackle our ambitious mission.
About the opportunity
Joining Vow as one of our first Food Science hires is an incredibly exciting opportunity. You’ll be given a blank slate and total creative freedom to take biological breakthroughs and turn them into seriously-good food products. This is more than just replicating the meat we have today, it’s completely redefining food from the ground up, and ultimately producing irresistible products for billions of people.
You will have access to expansive labspace, a brand new, kitted-out test kitchen and have the opportunity to bounce ideas off our network, which includes some of the smartest minds in science, food and business. You will be able to take total ownership of our food formulations, taking new concepts all the way from idea, to product-in-market.
We are looking for someone with a blend of creative and experimental mindsets to constantly improve the sensory outcomes of our products, be that flavour, aroma, texture and beyond. The ideal person will thrive in a fast growing and mission driven environment that isn’t constrained by traditional thinking when it comes to food innovation. You will take your experience, your knowledge and your enthusiasm and be given the resources to successfully create food that’s irresistible to consumers.
More than anything, you’ll be working alongside a team who is passionate about food, care about our future, and are excited to work with you and let you be at your greatest.
This is an incredible time to join Vow, and really own the direction of a critical piece of the company's future. The earth's current food systems are not sustainable, solving this is an everyday reality when you’re working at Vow. Come and make the positive impact that you were born to make.
