Healthy and Happy
Our first-class healthcare plans provide access to top notch healthcare providers. We provide “no contribution” medical, dental and vision that covers 100% of employee-only premiums and average contribution of 90% towards premiums for spouses / domestic partners and eligible dependents.

Workplace Well-being
To ensure a healthy lifestyle is encouraged, we offer a gym membership subsidy program as well as free access to our on-site fitness center, boot camp, yoga, meditation and low-cost massage services.

Farm to Company Cafeteria
Amyrisians enjoy “grab and go snacks”, drinks and fresh fruits that cater to all taste buds. Bagels are provided every Monday and three weekly lunches are catered with menus hand-selected to satisfy tastes and dietary needs.

Relax, Re-Energize, Return
Time off programs include open vacation for salary employees, 20 paid vacation days for hourly, 10 paid sick-leave days, 3 paid volunteer days, 12 paid U.S. holidays, 16 weeks of paid parental leave and a generous sabbatical program.

Shared Future
We offer a discount on the purchase of Amyris' stock in the Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP). In an effort to assist in building future financial security, the Amyris 401(k) plan provides a company match for contributions up to four percent of base salary. Additionally, Amyris' innovative EPIC program provides with flexibility to choose how Amyris' invests in them. Categories are designed to meet employees where they are with options for student loan repayment, retirement savings contribution, back-up child care and personal/professional development assistance.

Financial Security
Coverage is also available to protect Amyrisians from the financial impact of the unexpected. Basic employee life and accidental insurance coverage is provided at no cost and Amyrisians can purchase optional life insurance for themselves and/or eligible dependents. We also offer employer-paid short and long-term disability, identity theft protection, legal assistance and offer low cost supplemental accident and critical illness insurance.
