Viridos has a track record of expanding the horizons of both science and industry by delivering solutions that have never been possible.  Our team members come from an incredible range of professions, from analytical sciences, bioinformatics, engineering, and data science to molecular biology, microbiology, systems biology and biochemistry, metabolomics, and advanced agronomics, to name just a few.

Working together in a collaborative, highly dynamic, and supportive environment is part of what makes our science and the results we are achieving second to none.  And while we’re applying these skills in service of our first climate mitigation program (algal biofuels), we’re already starting on programs to decarbonize other industries.

This is where you come in. We’re looking for highly skilled, motivated scientists and engineers who want to apply their science to addressing climate change and sustainability challenges.  That is our Purpose at Viridos.  If that’s yours, we’d love to hear from you.

The spark of innovation starts with you.

Solving the unsolvable takes expertise, guts, …and collaboration.

We carry the best of “start-up mode thinking” in our DNA.  Facilitating the inspiration that comes from blending ingenuity, expertise, autonomy, and motivation is essential to finding answers to the problems we are solving.  And as new challenges arise in the science we conduct, our shared sense of purpose continues to push us beyond the expected to find what’s around the corner.  That’s why we believe that individual inspiration goes hand-in-hand with the power of teamwork – the sparks we ignite as individuals can be fired up into full-blown solutions that will change the world, together.

Our Values aren’t just hanging on our walls. They’re in our hearts.

They define our culture and are what makes that culture compelling.

Our Values form an integrated set of principles that guide our day-to-day actions and help shape how we hold ourselves accountable as individuals, as teams, and as a company.  They describe the professional behaviors we expect of each other and help guide whom we hire, how we support our team members, and reward performance.


We take pride in our science, the integrity and creativity of how we work, and the benefits society will derive from the results of our transformative solutions.

Radical Collaboration

We know that we are smarter, nimbler, and more innovative when we work with mutual respect, humility, and prioritization of a greater good over personal gain.


We are alert to the signals for a need to pivot or stay the course as we discover unexpected answers and new challenges with every step we take toward meeting our goals.


We believe everyone on our team should have a voice. We consider all perspectives and are inclusive in the choice of whom we hire and in the partnership decisions we make.

Working at Viridos is about caring for the planet and each other.

It’s also about having each other’s back as we tackle the challenges ahead.

Everyone on our team has a voice.

And we want those voices to represent the power of diversity.

There is no question that the most powerful innovations and the ability to convert those innovations into real-world solutions come from combining radically different perspectives. That’s why we’re intent on building diverse and inclusive teams that give our team members a voice, a sense of belonging, and a level of accountability.

The challenges we face – whether they’re in molecular biology, data analytics, or mapping the next big climate challenge – require that heightened sense of diversity to ensure our power to innovate can meet up to the size of the goals we have ahead of us.

And, so there is no question about where we stand, we ARE an equal opportunity employer that provides a supportive, equitable, and stimulating environment for all employees to pursue rewarding careers.
