Company description

At North Spore we want to make the world of mushrooms accessible to everyone, and we’re looking for a Facility Manager to help us realize our vision.

About North Spore

We’re mushrooming. Specifically, we help people grow mushrooms and as a result, are growing at an unprecedented rate. We’re passionate about cultivating food, foraging for mushrooms, and ‘Spreading the Spore’. When we launched in 2014, we were a vertically integrated mushroom farm, but have now grown into the Northeast’s premier mushroom supply and cultivation ecommerce company with a state of the art inhouse laboratory, mushroom spawn production facility, research farm, and digital education center.

As a leader in the field, we are constantly innovating and developing new products. Exponential growth, North American distribution, an ever-expanding product portfolio that goes well beyond grow kits, and a growing community of North Spore enthusiasts and social media followers around the world who sing our praises and treat their friends and family to their homegrown shrooms. We’re at that perfect stage of growth, where we’re still small enough for you to make a major difference, while big enough to have resources to do amazing things.
