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. We hope to continue to build a company whose culture promotes inclusion and embraces how rewarding it is to work with engineers from all walks of life. Making biology easier to engineer is a tough nut to crack - we can't afford to leave any talent untapped. It is the policy of Ginkgo Bioworks to provide equal employment opportunities to all employees and employment applicants.
