Benefits and growth

At Maravai, we’re invested in everyone’s success

The work that we do at Maravai LifeSciences has the potential to change, extend, and save lives around the world. For us, this work is meaningful and rewarding in and of itself as we empower our customers to pursue innovative technologies for humanity. But we offer our Maravai miracle makers even more.

We believe every individual at Maravai should feel valued for their contributions and given the skills and knowledge to grow in their careers. That’s why we offer competitive and performance-based total compensation, comprehensive benefits and learning and development opportunities to all of our people. We support and encourage everyone to bring their best selves to work – and to do the best work of their lives.


Competitive compensation and comprehensive benefits package

Our base salaries are benchmarked against similar life sciences companies and reviewed annually. Every employee participates in a performance-based bonus plan aligned with goals and objectives. We also grant stock awards to everyone with the desire that we all act as owners.

Supporting the health and wellbeing of our people is our top priority, so we offer a wide variety of benefits, wellness programs and resources to encourage our team to prioritize their mental, physical and financial wellbeing.

Career Development

Giving our teams the skills they need to advance their careers

Our aim is to unleash the potential of every Maravai team member to help them grow and achieve their dreams. We seek to develop the knowledge, skills and expertise of our team through on-the-job experiences, ongoing coaching and the right training at the right time.

We care for and about our people

Our employee engagement surveys serve as a catalyst that enables our growth as an organization and helps to ensure that Maravai is a place where every team member feels inspired, engaged and empowered. Here’s where employees told us we were strongest in our 2022 engagement survey:

I know how my work contributes to the company’s goals
I’m able to arrange time off from work when needed
My manager genuinely cares about my wellbeing


Everyone starts with Foundations

When a new employee joins Maravai, they undergo a comprehensive, multi-day orientation program called Foundations, designed to accelerate their onboarding. The orientation includes tours of our facilities and labs as well as interactive sessions with leaders from across the company.

During that first week, we focus on connecting new employees to their team, manager, and other colleagues to ensure they feel welcomed, supported, excited, and ready to dive in and contribute in their role.
