The opportunity

At ZBiotics, we make genetically engineered probiotics that improve daily life. As a group of motivated, yet down-to-earth people, we are fueled by two things: a love for science and a commitment to being people-first. GMO products like ours, built to create benefits for people in their daily lives are the future. As the first to market, we believe it’s our duty to set a high bar for product quality, safety, and transparency for others to follow.

In 2019, we launched the world’s first genetically engineered probiotic: a 15mL probiotic drink designed to break down an alcohol byproduct that leads to rough mornings after drinking. Since then, ZBiotics’ business has continued to grow rapidly year over year.

We are preparing to launch our second product, a genetically engineered probiotic with a new function related to microbiome health.

This is a hands-on design role that will collaborate with external creators and a tight-knit internal marketing team with a wide variety of creative needs. Your work will be essential to our growth as a business and a standout brand as your creative will guide every step of the customer journey.
