About HowGood

HowGood is an independent research company with the world's largest database on product sustainability. With more than 33,000 ingredients, chemicals, and materials assessed, HowGood SaaS and impact data offerings help leading brands, retailers and investors improve their environmental and social impact. Through in-depth, ingredient-level insights into factors ranging from greenhouse gas emissions to animal welfare to labor risk, HowGood data powers strategic decision-making for the sourcing, manufacturing, merchandising, and marketing of sustainable products.


HowGood was founded with the belief that good information enables good decisions. By illuminating the complex systems that affect our environment, we push organizations to make sustainable products. HowGood is committed to catalyzing change in the food industry, to help create a resilient ecosystem for us and future generations.


The Engineering Team


The engineering team is at the center of operations at HowGood. We build the applications used by our Fortune 500 customers to make critical decisions, and the tools our Research Team uses to work with large pools of data. The work we do enables customers to see the entire universe of sourcing choices and understand their impact within a greater system.


Our team is currently building and evolving our core features in three key directions. We are expanding the capacity and subject matter of our data ingestion to show change over time in carbon emissions, biodiversity impact, working conditions, and other metrics. We are also enhancing our reporting on sustainability performance, for things like evaluating regulatory compliance globally. Finally, we are building the platform used by suppliers to integrate their inventories into our platform.


Sustainability experience is not required to be successful here – we look for smart, ideologically motivated, empathetic engineers who love solving problems and are determined to make an impact in line with our mission. While working on a team of like minded engineers, you will have complete ownership of the solutions and architectural designs that keep HowGood nimble.

The applications and infrastructure that we build requires the ability to seamlessly handle huge amounts of data quickly and reliably, to put our customers on a regenerative path. Our impact on the world depends on it.
