Calling a curious, deep-thinking doer: We are a Venice-based consumer health and life science company focused on the microbiome (yes, the bacteria that make up 50% of each of us).

We are a subversive brand that speaks science, empowers through questioning, and understands everything is connected. The microbiome offers a powerful new lens to understand our bodies, to shift our beliefs about bacteria, and to re-think the way we think about our health.  

We are rebels with a cause, scientists, storytellers, and dot connectors, seeking curious deep-thinkers and doers; rockstars from other verticals with existential crises’ propelling them to find purpose and application for their skills, incessant health and wellness researchers bent on putting their passion to work and above all, you are the best at what you do and are excited to say you were there at the beginning.

Collaboration is at the core of who you are and how you work and the collective win is the result of your individual ones but in a “1+1=3” kind of way.

This is a brand and company born out of the life we want to cultivate and how we want to feel about what we put out into the world. It is as much about the doing and the people as the outcome (but don’t get us wrong, we are excited to make this a win and believe deeply in the timing of this company and its potential).

And since it’s just the beginning and even though it’s cliche, it’s true; the growth opportunity here is real. Be indispensable and irreplaceable, be a leader, be honest about what you don’t know and take charge where you do, co-create our culture, and understand that you have a significant impact on our collective success (in all meanings of the word).

Yes, we’ll need you to be in LA. full time. But we understand if that involves moving here from somewhere else.

Why this role exists: Reporting to the VP of Marketing, the Social Media Manager will turn curiosity, biology, the microbiome, and all things health and science into a sparkling conversation for citizen scientists across the Internet (and at the dinner table). We’re humans with big ideas, big convictions, and a rigorous sense of responsibility. Social is the heartbeat of Seed and how much of the world meets and interacts with us.


What’s in it for me: Work side-by-side with Seed’s leadership team, in a small but swiftly growing startup.
