- GreenLight Biosciences
The GreenLight team harnesses the principles of equality and diversity to push the boundaries of scientific discovery and stay focused on making a difference. This works because inclusion is a part of who we are and guides both our business decisions and how we work together. We take pride in our talented teams, our technology, and the solutions we deliver to protect the health of people and feed our planet.
Our DNA has the following values deeply coded within: care for everyone; courage to challenge conventional thinking; inclusive collaboration to propel our success; and commitment to science, in doing the right thing, always.
It is through this lens that we go about our work and assess its impact on the world. Our culture is built on care, transparency, diversity, employee ownership and engagement, and a deep, humble respect for science.
We believe that GreenLight’s platform can create advanced products to address—quickly, directly, and specifically—some of humanity’s greatest challenges. We have used our flexible technology to advance vaccine development, pandemic preparation, crop management, and plant protection.

It's rare to come work for a team that is so busy yet provides such support and flexibility. As an intern, I have the opportunity to learn a lot and provide real value to the team while also taking point on projects and leveraging and improving existing skills. These factors enable me to get the most out of my internship, creating an immeasurable amount of value as I move forward in my career. The data teams seek to improve processes and learn as much as I do, and even though I'm an intern, I'm not treated as "just the intern" -- it truly feels like my feedback, ideas, questions, and skills are just as valued as the rest of the team.
