Our mission is to make biology easier to engineer.
Our mission is to make biology easier to engineer. Ginkgo is constructing, editing, and redesigning the living world in order to answer the globe’s growing challenges in health, energy, food, materials, and more. Our bioengineers make use of an in-house automated foundry for designing and building new organisms.
Ginkgo Finance is entering its next phase as a public company on this very exciting journey of rapid growth and industry-disrupting technologies. Now that Ginkgo has completed its public offering (Q4 2021), adopted two impactful accounting standards (CECL and Leasing, 2022) and finished its first year as a large-accelerated filer subject to reporting of our internal controls over financial reporting (2022), the Accounting, Reporting & Controllership (ARC) organization is campaigning to in-source senior level expertise across various disciplines which had been previously outsourced. If you have demonstrated strength in the world of technical accounting and controllership, we would love to connect with you.
Our current team includes the best of the best - starting with strong seniors and analysts led by the most innovative of executive-level directors and vice presidents. Collectively we’ve designed our various individual accounting organizations (revenue, fixed asset & lease, employee compensation and benefits, etc.) and related policies, procedures and objectives. Now is the time to build out our new layer of talented senior-level leadership to put their fingerprint on these organizations and make them their own.
We are a very inclusive team, passionate about our careers and dedicated to being part of something significant. If this sounds like the right opportunity for you, please apply! Curious? Let’s have a conversation.

Total compensation for this role is market driven, with a starting salary of $90,000+, as well as company stock awards. Base pay is ultimately determined based on a candidate's skills, expertise, and experience.

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, equity, 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, so 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.
It is the policy of Ginkgo Bioworks to provide equal employment opportunities to all employees, employment applicants, and EOE disability/vet.
Ginkgo Bioworks is the organism company. We design custom organisms for customers across multiple markets. We build our foundries to scale the process of organism engineering using software and hardware automation. Organism engineers at Ginkgo learn from nature to develop new organisms that replace technology with biology.
Engineering biology isn't easy. It is frustratingly, painfully difficult. It's programming without a debugger, manufacturing without CAD, and construction without cranes. At Ginkgo we are building a team that can build debuggers, write CAD, and operate cranes. We are looking for the best engineers, scientists, and hackers.
