JUST – Why Work For Us?


Our mission is to build a food system where everyone is eating well. Eating well means eating food that nourishes our bodies. Eating food that strengthens the planet. Eating food that tastes exceptionally good—and is accessible to everyone. Our technology, which is based upon understanding plants from every corner of the planet, enables consumers, food manufacturers, and the largest retailers around the world to offer better, healthier products, at a more affordable cost.


JUST's leadership includes executives and experts from technology, food, and life sciences, from brands like Google, Uber, Synthetic Genomics, BCG, Netflix, Walmart, NetApp, and Airbnb.

Whether in the lab or in the Finance team, you’ll be leading, building and ideating alongside these leaders in our collaborative workspace.

With a team of engineers, scientists, chefs from Michelin-rated restaurants, and a half dozen robots, R&D is the engine of JUST. The largest team within our company, Research & Development moves fast at building data around plants sourced from around the world. Our food scientists apply methods to see how they can be used in food to make everyday products healthier and more sustainable. Our culinary Product Development team picks it up from there to develop delicious pantry food items. Composed of chefs from Moto to the French Laundry, our chefs brought their stringent standards with them to Hampton Creek to make good food accessible to people everywhere. 


Since we are obsessed with the idea of “starting over,” we can’t resist asking the question to just about every facet of our business. And if we “started over” with internship programs, well, we’d make them something like this:

At JUST interns have ownership over projects that are key to our business, like Eric, an MS/MBA that worked with the product team to develop a sustainability strategy. Our interns are embedded in their teams, working alongside and getting mentorship from leaders from dozens of industries. Interns meet with our CEO, Josh, regularly to offer their thoughts on business decisions and ask questions--from entrepreneurship advice to whether they should go to law school.

And our interns often get to choose projects that they find most fascinating. Examples include creating methods to better isolate plant proteins or designing creative social media strategies to increase engagement.

Our past interns were students across the country: at Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, U of I, and beyond.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at JUST (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen where I talked with the People Team and discussed behavioural questions. The phone screen was followed by an onsite interview where I met with R&D team, and R&D leaders to discuss experiences and show a quick lab skill test.
