Culture & Benefits

We're in this together.

Why TraceGains?

At TraceGains, we believe “we’re in this together” and our goal is to provide the most innovative solutions in the industry. We are in the game to change the industry and with the help of our ever-growing TraceGains Network have created the CPG industry’s first networked ingredients marketplace.

We like to give back to our community. Every year, we organize company-driven charity activities and give employees paid time off to volunteer for the cause of their choice. We like to work hard and play hard, which usually involves fun-spirited contests. If you follow us on social media, you know that we like to bring everyone together virtually, whether through a photo contest with TraceGains swag or trivia.

We also believe in good work-life balance. In addition to our organized and impromptu fun get-togethers, we offer company-wide mental health days for everyone to unwind and relax in their own special way.

A culture of inclusion


TraceGains is committed to finding and attracting talented people from every walk of life. We celebrate our similarities and our differences. We respect and value diversity of all kinds, whether it’s gender identity, sexual orientation, religious background, race and ethnicity, age, or veteran status.

TraceGains strives for continuous improvement and accountability when it comes to improving diversity, equity, and inclusion at our company—from how we recruit and retain employees to the products we release to the market. Our employee-run Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee (DEI), successfully implemented unconscious bias training company-wide and we discovered we have more work to do. We believe in progress, not perfection, and remain committed to building and nurturing a warm, well-represented, supportive workplace where team members know they are safe, heard, and belong.
