Words from our team

How books and a career in business operations led me to love working in cultured meat 🥩

Two years ago I had no idea a book on climate change would result in me road tripping through rural New South Wales to procure an alpaca biopsy.
Ironically, despite my best attempts to take initiative and plan, some of the most significant decisions in my life have been driven by entirely innate, unsuspecting objects: books.

Cultured meat and Australia

A couple of weeks ago we cut the ribbon on Vow’s “Factory 1”, giving us the chance to pause and acknowledge what cultured meat could mean for Australia.
Meat is delicious. Whether you choose to eat meat or not, you know it’s bloody good food.

This is why I, and billions of others, eat meat.

And it’s why a staggering 339 million tonnes of meat were eaten globally in 2021, up 5% from 2020.

Leaving fintech to tackle food sustainability: Why I joined VOW

It was the end of 2017, and I had just experienced some burnout after my first year as an engineering manager at San Francisco financial technology company Plaid. The experience forced me to take some time away from work, head back to my hometown of Sydney, and ask some tough questions about my personal and professional life.
I spent 4 weeks in Australia, with days spent reconnecting with family and old friends, rediscovering my home city, reading, and taking time to rest and recharge. I didn’t entirely stop working, but what I did tackle was mostly creative, high-level exploration that was genuinely enjoyable and valuable.

We're driven by a mission

A multidisciplinary team committed to a sustainable future of food.

Vow is unrestrained. We're the perfect company for switched-on individuals, wide eyed with ambition, who want work that contributes meaningfully, constantly inventing new ways to operate, or conceiving different applications.
