Become an Oerthling

We’ve built a culture we love, centered on core indispensable values.

We’re hyper-focused on revolutionizing the food system and improving human health – without ever losing sight of our values. We believe we can do anything with the right people and the right culture. Our single most determinant success factor: people and the culture we build.

Arête (Inspired)

This ancient Greek term defines our approach to cutting-edge science. It means excellence. The excellence born from seeking to use up every last drop of one's potential and abilities.

Fire in the belly (Empathetic)

It’s not enough to be smart. Here, you have to be hungry. At Oerth Bio, we have an insatiable craving to make a difference for farmers, for the environment, for consumers, and for our community.

Accountable & scrappy (Provocative)

You will not find the old top-down authoritative model of management at Oerth Bio. We believe that holding each other and ourselves accountable is essential for our mutual long-term success.

Humbly confident (Approachable)

We all have different areas of focus, but we have one thing in common: mutual respect. We disagree effectively and empathetically. We never stop cheering each other on. We learn from our mistakes. You won’t find any jerks here. Just people who care about their work, and each other.

Simplifier (Focused)

We’re fans of Pareto’s 80/20 rule: that 80% of results will come from just 20% of the action. So we put 110% of our effort into the areas where we know can make a meaningful difference.
