There are *a bajillion* jobs working on plant-based foods right now

A hugely pop­u­lar EA Fo­rum post this past win­ter illus­trated the tremen­dous difficulty in get­ting hired by effec­tive al­tru­ist or­ga­ni­za­tions.

This week at Berkeley REACH, Kel­sey Piper high­lighted a few shifts in the EA com­mu­nity that seem rele­vant. As EA has be­come more fo­cused on big-pic­ture ideas, we’ve be­come less ex­cited by the prospect of giv­ing ~10% of your in­come ev­ery year, for ex­am­ple by sav­ing lives in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries. Still, it’s pretty in­cred­ible that that’s some­thing most peo­ple can do!

In the vein of high-im­pact, ac­cessible op­por­tu­ni­ties, Kel­sey also noted that Im­pos­si­ble Foods has ~30 open­ings at the mo­ment, many of them doable by EAs with­out even re­quiring any spe­cial­ized skills. Do you live in the San Fran­cisco bay area? Can you do man­u­fac­tur­ing work? Then there’s a job there for you.

To widen this a bit, there are frankly *a ba­jllion* jobs right now work­ing on plant-based and cell-based meat. So I’ve high­lighted a few be­low, fo­cus­ing on breadth of com­pa­nies and less tech­ni­cal po­si­tions. Happy ap­ply­ing!
