Job requirements

Our introduction (not boring, we’re cool)

In 2011, the first In Ovo pipettes hit the lab. The goal was clear: to stop the unnecessary killing of day old male chicks.

The first samples were carefully taken by hand. It took some years to get there, but in 2016, it worked: a single drop of the egg’s fluid was enough to see whether it held a boy or a girl. One done, only 13 billion to go.

As you can imagine, we needed a machine.

The first steps into industrialisation were taken and a huge impact on animal welfare was lurking. In 2020, our first machine was up and running. We named her Ella. What a beauty.

Taking a huge leap to today’s In Ovo: we’re a team of over 60 people, 3 Ellas and millions of saved chicks. We are engineers, operators, scientists, office people and everything in between. The go-getters of the poultry industry who roll up their sleeves to improve animal welfare. And Ella is just the beginning.

We believe that animals deserve a dignified place in a sustainable food industry. And we need way more people to fulfil our mission of improving the lives of 5 billions animals by 2030.

Are you with us?
