  • We’re on a mission to save our planet, our health, and animals by creating a solution to fix the food system.

  • We’re people of integrity. We do what we say we will do, we treat others right, we care deeply about those around us, and we put our hearts into our work.  

What will you do? 

  • Scale recipes to expedite the process of testing new Eclipse formulas and flavors

  • Maintain ingredient and kitchen equipment inventory lists 

  • Coordinate shipping and receiving of customer orders and sales samples

  • Assist team at trade shows and events with set-up / break-down and hand out delicious ice cream to happy people
