Culture

Founded in 2002, Selventa still maintains a start-up feel. With around 30 Selventans, our small team is dedicated to solving complex biological problems together. Our employees drive our success and we value the significant contributions made by each member of our team. We offer a comfortable and inclusive environment. As we continue to grow, we welcome applicants who enjoy a friendly and collaborative environment, who have a natural curiosity, and who are knowledgeable about their field.

Volunteering

Volunteer work is important to us. Over the years, our Day of Service has enabled us to help many local organizations in need of extra hands, including:
 
  • The Greater Boston Food Bank
  • Cradles to Crayons
  • Waltham Fields Community Farm
  • The American Cancer Society

On March 19, 2012 we again joined the American Cancer Society (ACS) in their annual Daffodil Days campaign by helping to assemble, sort and prepare packages for distribution at a local FedEx location. Along with other volunteers, we helped ship 1,097 boxes of Daffodil Days orders and our fundraising efforts contributed to the $1.2 million they raised in MA as a result of this campaign.

Community Outreach

On June 23, 2011 we were joined by a group of scholars, alums, and faculty from the One Family Scholars Program for a "Lunch & Learn" event. One Family, Inc. is a nonprofit organization with a mission to end homelessness in Massachusetts through higher education. Through their Scholars Program, they offer a comprehensive college scholarship program for low-income single parents. In addition to tuition assistance the Program provides participants with the tools they need for both academic and professional success. By working with local companies to host Lunch & Learn events One Family is able to provide scholars with a unique career development opportunity. During the Selventa Lunch & Learn event we were able to introduce attendees to Personalized Healthcare in addition to providing information about Selventa careers, including: what we look for in candidates, possible career paths, and on the job expectations. We were also joined by a number of Selventa employees who shared their own background, career path, and job duties with the group.

Staff Events

From our weekly team lunch to periodic milestone and award celebrations, we hold regular staff-wide events. These events serve not only as opportunities to get together as a group, but also as a time to recognize exceptional performance and efforts. Many of our events are employee-organized, ensuring a wide variety of activities.

Selventa is headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts with teams in the UK and Israel.
