Thank you for your interest in joining our team!

Good & Well Supply Co is a small business in Ballard making candles and other home and personal fragrance products. Inspired by our country’s national narks, we’re an enthusiastic and compassionate group of individuals working to bring the scents of the outdoors in. 

We pride ourselves on taking care of our team through benefits that put money back into their pocket, like fully subsidized heath care and fair pay.

We're not just about the bottom line; we donate 2% of our annual revenue to organizations that protect and conserve our environment and public lands.

Want to work here? The people that thrive at Good & Well are adaptable, take pride in their work, but also don't take themselves too seriously. There's a strong DIY spirit - you may not know how to do something, but you can definitely figure it out. We want people to feel like they're working with us, not for us.
