Lovevery is a fast-growing, direct-to-consumer startup cofounded by successful serial entrepreneurs and based in Boise, Idaho. Our mission is to support and empower parents to give their children formative developmental experiences in the critical, early years of life.

We are committed to becoming a leader in sustainable products and are working hard to comprehensively understand, and subsequently reduce, our impact. One of Lovevery’s primary goals in our commitment to sustainability is for 90% of the materials used in our products and packaging to be made from renewable, biobased, or recycled materials by 2025. We are in the process of consulting material experts to find renewable, innovative, and durable materials that minimize our footprint and we need help.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about the environment, loves to take things apart and put them back together, and is interested in materials and their role in engineering and design.
