HENDERSON, NEV. — While the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed and even stopped hiring for some industries, biochemical manufacturing company Substrata reports it has grown during the pandemic.
“Fortunately, through the pandemic, we’ve grown quite a bit, but that’s also made hiring a very challenging thing for us,” said Royal Marty, CEO of Substrata. “First thing, we ask for a video from the applicant, so we want to know a little bit about you.”
Substrata job candidates receive a demo kit so they can formulate a pitch and present ideas for how to further the company’s products.
Marty said, so far, only about 10 percent of applicants have followed through on sending the video.
Although the hiring process may look different due to the pandemic, Marty said Substrata hasn’t slowed hiring and is currently looking to fill many positions including roles in sales, marketing, and warehouse assistants.
The Henderson-based company has positions available in digital marketing and sales as well.

MORE ABOUT SUBSTRATA
Substrata has been solving the biggest challenges in soil stabilization, soil conditioning, cleaning, odor control and petroleum-based bioremediation for over 40 years.
Originally founded by inventor John Battistoni in the 1970s and branded as International Enzymes, the company quickly became a market leader with its 100 percent organic, non-toxic formulations perfect for solidifying and remediating soil, deodorizing and degreasing — all without any destructive environmental impact.
Today, the company’s family of enzyme-based soil treatment has expanded into flagship products: Perma-Zyme; Petra-Zyme; Bacto-Zyme; Harva-Zyme and Surfa-Zyme.
While International Enzymes has since evolved into Substrata, John’s original formulations remain as consistent and effective as they were 40 years ago. His vision to create products that could treat and remediate soil in an environmentally conscious manner is alive and well — and, with it, a series of products that can’t be found anywhere else in the market.
Substrata’s secret to success results from helping customers innovate, empower and sustain. Substrata is fueled by helping customers push boundaries and challenge the status quo. As the company moves forward, Substrata will continue to make itself synonymous with the exceptional products and services that got it where it is today.
