Food Scientist
Chew - Boston, MA





Imagine this. You’re creating products you’ve always been told weren’t possible. Pushing boundaries, failing fast, and innovating again. You’re working alongside the best of the best – chefs, food scientists, product developers, manufacturing experts – the team that can take a product from an idea to shelves in a matter of weeks or months, not years. No more following the status quo or doing things just for the sake of “this is how it’s always been done.” You’ve been told consumer packaged goods can’t truly be sustainable, nutritious and delicious? Not here. Not at Chew. This is our reality.


We are fusing the culinary and food science worlds to make the next generation of industry-defining food and beverage products that not only taste great, but are also actually nutritious. Our clients come to us because we can take an inkling of an idea and give them something unbelievable to taste in days or weeks, not years.

If it’s not healthy, if it’s not delicious, if it’s not sustainable…we keep innovating. We know that there are no problems without solutions. Dedication and hard work will always overcome the most difficult roadblocks. We are looking for someone who shares our passion for food and for giving consumers better choices when they walk down the grocery store aisles.


The ideal candidate is a focused, flexible, multi-tasker who welcomes challenges and a fast-paced environment. You’re an energy giver, to those around you – always inspiring and aspiring. New and exciting projects are always coming through the door, so you need to be on your toes and good at re-shuffling priorities. Precision and execution are an absolutely essential tool for you to thrive at Chew. The belief that perfection is something that will never be found, yet the comfort knowing that excellence is actually the purpose of what we do.


We are looking for a unique balance of creative and practical - someone self-motivated and driven, but also team-oriented and obsessed with the details.

You must have a deep knowledge of the consumer packaged goods industry, a culinary or science degree is must.

This requires a comprehensive understanding of what is possible in the manufacturing and ingredient world. We expect that you have a strong desire to innovate and stay current on trends and advancements within the industry, so that you can innovative novel ideas and new techniques.

This is your opportunity to dream up and make foods that nobody (outside our lab) thinks are possible.


You like to get your hands dirty, have the desire to touch food and be present at the bench and beyond the bench to manufacturing. Engaging in development and leadership of product development.

You lead with your gut, if it feels right you go for it, we push, learn, fail and repeat. It’s in our DNA.


We’re looking for candidates at all levels within the food science arena.

Bachelors, awesome. Masters, excellent, PH.D, great.

Candidates should have at least four years of experience within product development.
