Job Description

Who we are:Navitas (Nah-V'-tas) is Latin for energy, and it certainly describes how we operate. We're a fast moving, hard-working, friendly crew who care about our team just as much as we care about the superfood plants that feed and sustain us. Fast growth means hard work and the need for lots of superfoods. Our blenders are always mixing up superfood concoctions to keep us going and we take every opportunity to tell you about the benefits of our many products. We cultivate an environment where we each get a chance to be ourselves and do the work we enjoy. We like to eat superfoods and practice yoga at the office just as much as we love a good sports game and happy hour. Most importantly, we are all aligned around the premium, organic superfoods we create and making them available to more people. Our team of over 100 is based in Marin County, California, just 20 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Our 50+ products are now sold at more than 5,000 stores in the US, Canada and abroad.
