Introduction to InGen

International Genetics Technologies was founded by John Hammond in 1985 as a vehicle for pursuing his lifelong dream: the chance to create living, breathing dinosaurs out of partially-preserved DNA samples.

After some initial research in Palo Alto and Costa Rica, InGen lost its foreign backers due to a series of (unspecified) incidents. Universal Studios, however, came to the struggling corporation's rescue, entering into a joint venture to create a brand-new attraction.

Only a few short years later, the highly successful venture has resulted in Jurassic Park, the most amazing entertainment attraction on earth. Visitors are able to mingle with a variety of animals who had not walked this planet in hundreds of millions of years.

The Structure

The business of operating the attraction is run from the InGen building, located at Jurassic Park's southern entrance.

InGen is divided into four divisions, each managed by a Vice President. Each Vice President reports to Dr. Hammond, who serves as President and Chief Executive Officer. There is also a Chief Financial Officer, who is responsible for overseeing financial activity within each division.

The four divisions are: Human Resources, Marketing, Security and Systems Administration.


Employees are regulated by the Human Resources division and administered by the individual divisions. Each employee reports to a supervisor, responsible for directing his/her work and for seeing that InGen's employment policies affect that employee fairly and impartially. Each supervisor reports, directly or through a chain of command, to a Vice President.

A Wealth of Diversity

No two jobs at InGen are exactly alike, nor are any two employees. You have a unique contribution to make to the continuing accomplishments of this dynamic corporation.

We value your training, education and life experience as well as your individual skill set, dedication, and, most of all, enthusiasm. We look forward to your role in the continued growth and success of Jurassic Park.

Drug and Weapon-free Workplace

InGen and Jurassic Park are proud to comply with state and federal law as a drug-free zone. Please refer to the latest drug classification table for more details.

In compliance with Universal Studios Hollywood policy, InGen is also a weapons-free zone.

InGen will not discriminate against any person because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, genetic makeup, age, sexual orientation, athletic ability, chromosome deficiency, marital status, disability, height, weight, eye color, hair color, unfavorable discharge from the military, or status as a disabled veteran or a veteran of the Vietnam era.

Conflict of Interest

InGen encourages its employees to pursue an active and engaging life outside of work.

Due to the delicate nature of the work you will be doing, we kindly request that you do not engage in activities on or off the job that conflict with your hours of work, your job performance, or that might reasonably be considered to be in conflict with your obligations and responsibilities.
