I am looking to fill two roles on our finance team. 

The Company

In many ways, Enviroscent is more of a technology company than a fragrance company. With 25 issued and pending patents, a team of degreed chemists and a commitment to fundamental research and development, we are focused both on developing and commercializing innovative and disruptive technologies that meet consumer’s unmet needs in air care.

 We are a well-financed, high-growth, private-equity backed consumer products company. In an industry littered with corrosive solvents, asthma-inducing sensitizers, chemical propellants, and landfill-bound devices, we set out to be different. We're not in the business of making "less-bad" aerosols, plug-ins, or candles. Our vision is to deliver the finest home fragrances in a new, safe, low-footprint way. We believe the Enviroscent way is a better way. Our vision is based on four principles. Find out more at

 We are made up of a group of seasoned professionals who are committed to building a brand focused on reinventing home fragrance. We move at a fast pace, so if you’re someone who enjoys the challenge of balancing daily cycles in an entrepreneurial environment, you’ll enjoy every minute here at Enviroscent.

 Our corporate culture has been defined as “intellectually honest,” and folks whose DNA is to ask who, why, how and what-if often feel like they have finally found home here. Our team characterizes their work at Enviroscent as meaningful, challenging, and well-compensated, and that it helps them grow  professionally (we know, because we ask). With our fast growth, the team at EnviroScent is always on the lookout for entrepreneurial-minded talent with the right mix of passion and aptitude.
