Head of Influencer + Partnerships

Posted 2.14.24


We are a microbiome science company pioneering innovations in probiotics and living medicines to impact human and planetary health. Founded to realize the potential of microbes, our platform enables the translation of breakthrough science across a portfolio that encompasses both indication-specific and preventive applications across gastrointestinal and digestive health, women’s health, skin and dermatological health, oral care, pediatrics, mental health, metabolic function, and nutrition.

Our consumer innovations are commercialized under Seed® with a mission to bring much-needed precision, efficacy, education and perspective-shifting science communication to the global category of probiotics. And our environmental research is conducted under SeedLabs, which was founded to develop novel bacterial interventions to enhance biodiversity and restore ecosystems impacted by human activity. LUCA Biologics, our women’s health biotech company co-founded with Dr. Jacques Ravel, develops living medicines targeting the vaginal microbiome for urogenital and reproductive health.

Founded in Venice, CA with a global team across Europe, Australia, Asia and North America, Seed Health was co-founded by Ara Katz and Raja Dhir, alongside a scientific board comprised of leading scientists, researchers, and clinicians across the fields of microbiology, immunology, bioinformatics, dermatology, oral health, vaginal health, gastroenterology, mental health, pediatrics, and nutrition.

The Head of Influencer and Partnerships will lead Seed’s award-winning Influencer and Partnerships Program. Seed’s Influencer and Partnerships program has been central to its success from day 1 – and yet so much opportunity to grow it further remains.

Simultaneously, you will expand Seed’s KOL/Celebrity work with the most prominent voices in the health and probiotics space, unlocking new opportunities to both grow Seed’s awareness and drive performance while dazzling partners and consumers alike.

You will accomplish this alongside deep collaboration with Brand, Growth, and Seed’s Co-founders to ensure the full breadth of Seed’s brand is brought to bear. And you will do so with the support of your team; a group of 5 talented individuals who you will mentor and grow alongside the business.
