Commercial Development Analyst - Client Support

Ginkgo Bioworks, Remote/Boston, MA


Ginkgo Bioworks is a privately held, high-growth and well-funded biotechnology company based in Boston’s Seaport District. Our mission is to make biology easier to engineer.  As a world leader in synthetic biology, we leverage our unparalleled data, automation, and scale capabilities in biological engineering to build custom organisms. Our products work across the economy - from custom proteins for plant-based foods, to novel microbes that can replace traditional fertilizer, to living medicines that respond to conditions in a patient’s body.  

In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we have launched a new service: Concentric by Ginkgo. Concentric is Ginkgo’s pandemic response program. At the core is a high scale testing business, coupled with an end-to-end service provided to customers. We firmly believe that testing is an essential requirement to re-open the economy as quickly and safely as possible (see our white paper here), and anticipate that the test we aim to offer, including an NGS-based diagnostic test still under development, will comprise a significant portion of our national testing capacity as we scale. 

Come join our dynamic, passionate and collaborative team!

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.
