Ecovative Careers

Ecovative is a fast-paced, quickly growing company that attracts talented people who are passionate about sustainability. We have come together to advance the global understanding and appreciation of fungi, and to recognize the potential of mycelium to help bring humans into an abundant future while protecting the environment. Guided by our core values, our increasingly diverse team is dedicated to achieving an audacious, hopeful, and incredibly important mission.

We are designers, engineers, geologists, biologists, mycologists…

More than that, we’re a group of people passionate about the planet and true sustainability. We’ve been told our company culture is not like others, and we agree! We not only take the time to cheer our company’s successes, but also to celebrate accomplishments and happiness in our individual lives. Working hard to improve the planet’s future makes our culture tight-knit, like mycelium, which we foster through foraging, costume contests, bowling, trivia, company retreats and other fun stuff. We truly believe in what we’re doing, and enjoy doing it.

Welcome to Ecovative.


We prioritize the health of Ecovators and their loved ones, offering top notch benefits to support physical, financial, and emotional wellbeing. Our goal is that everyone at Ecovative feels their best in day to day life, and therefore feels able to do their best work. The benefits offered are generous and comprehensive, providing a foundation of care and peace of mind as we work to improve the world for everyone.

01 Health and Wellness

Doing our best starts with feeling our best. Ecovative offers comprehensive medical, dental, and vision insurance for employees and their dependents. Employee assistance programs focused on mental health are available, as well as workplace accommodations for anything related to physical and mental health.

02 Financial Wellbeing

A sense of financial security is crucial to overall health. That’s why we provide competitive compensation, as well as 401(k) and regional retirement plans. In addition, we offer regular bonuses, equity refresh opportunities, along with annual cross-company pay equity analysis and adjustments.

03 Flexibility and Time Off

Work and life affect one another directly, so we create a flexible work environment and encourage taking necessary time to rest and recharge. Paid time off includes vacation, bereavement, sick leave, parental leave, holidays, and personal wellbeing days. We also minimize commutes with a hybrid work model and remote work opportunities.

04 Community and Personal Development

Doing our best individually helps to do our best together, so we provide space and opportunities for personal growth. That includes an educational reimbursement program, donation matching and time off for volunteering, employee resource groups for underrepresented employees and their allies, connections to various community groups and local culture clubs.
