At Infarm, we’re building a culture of impact. What else do you value about Infarm’s culture?
Rachel: Infarm is the first company I’ve worked at where people are genuinely themselves when you meet them. People have a lot of passion and tend to join the company because it aligns with their values around sustainability.
Mariah: We have such a vibrant and energetic culture. People who work here are from a wide range of cultures, nationalities and age groups, which brings new perspectives and experiences to our decision-making process. And everyone is so caring — it’s the best company I’ve worked for, from the benefits offered, to the time people take to mentor their teammates.
What’s your favorite part of working at Infarm?
Rachel: I truly love our team — they motivate me to show up as my best self every day. We have a beautiful, future-focused mission that is helping our industry adapt as the world changes. And it’s amazing to work for a company that is expanding at such a rapid rate, especially during a global pandemic.
Mariah: Because North America is one of our newest markets, there’s a lot of potential for upward mobility, whether you’re just starting in your career or you’re managing city operations. For example, I started as a plant expert and am now a business operations manager. I appreciate working for a company that encourages personal growth.
As we grow in North America, we’re looking to add smart, talented people to our team. What advice would you give to people interested in a career with Infarm?
Mariah: Knowledge in agriculture or plant health is a bonus, but we look more for people who are passionate about what Infarm is doing. Also, while we operate as a team, it’s important to be independent and have a strong sense of personal accountability. Things change daily, and you need to be able to pivot.
Rachel: It’s important to know that you’re joining a startup. Even though we’re a global company, things move quickly. I always encourage people to not be afraid to make mistakes. If you were hired, you were hired for a reason.
