Culture and people

Operating an extraordinary business begins with our people

Our success hinges on our ability to attract, engage, develop and retain a talented and diverse team who shares our vision, mission and core values. At Maravai, we strive to foster an inclusive culture where all perspectives are valued, so our team members feel empowered to bring their best selves to work and contribute to our mission, while pursuing their personal and professional goals.

Vision and mission

United in pursuit of innovative, lifesaving technology for humanity

As a purpose-driven company, our people and culture are aligned to a common vision and emboldened by a mission that powers the work we do. This is how our extraordinary science yields everyday miracles.

We envision a world where scientists are limited only by the boundaries of their imaginations – and where we can expand those boundaries for every vaccine, therapeutic and diagnostic company on the planet.

Our Name

Maravai is the northern Italian word for “miracle”

The miracles of science are inspiring, life-changing and endless. Genomics. Biotherapeutics. They’re all around us. Maravai LifeSciences helps scientists bring the miracles of science to life.

Our Values

At Maravai, we live and work by the CODE

We define our company culture and guiding principles with a simple acronym for how we conduct ourselves and serve our customers: CODE.

At Maravai we are:

Connected – believing in people, trust and collaboration

Open – embracing ideas and perspectives for better outcomes

Driven – finding a better way, always

Empowered – valuing integrity and accountability in everything we do.


Like our science, our approach to environmental stewardship is robust and rigorous

At Maravai, we believe we have a responsibility to protect the environment, and we are committed to meeting or exceeding all applicable environmental regulatory compliance requirements and continuously improving the sustainability of our operations.

Our environmental, social and governance (ESG) framework informs our strategy and guides our approach to managing risks and opportunities to achieve sustainable growth.

Community engagement

Maravai’s people make miracles happen globally and closer to home

Maravai actively supports the health and prosperity of the communities its facilities inhabit, as well as all of the communities in which our teammates work and live. Through charitable giving and incentivizing involvement, our people get involved and make a difference.
