Before Boveda, it was difficult, if not impossible to control humidity for moisture-sensitive products like cigars, cannabis, and wooden instruments. So Boveda invented that control. Boveda started with a frustrated cigar lover whose job was to keep his cigars properly humidified. That job was labor-intensive and it didn't always work. It was the '90s and he was limited to distilled water and sponges, distilled water and shot glasses, or foam and chemicals. (Some people still use those one-way humidifying methods. We don't know why. But that's another story.)

The difficulty of accomplishing this task led to the creation of Boveda (then Humidipak) which is a two-way humidity control in a ready-to-use packet. Boveda's semipermeable membrane contains all-natural salts and purified water to keep moisture-sensitive products safe. Since 1997, we have been the global leader in two-way humidity control.

You don't find a work culture like ours every day. We have an awesome office vibe that welcomes creative, innovative, and talented minds who enjoy being part of our passionate team. We truly value each of our team member's hard work and skills. This is why we offer competitive compensation, exceptional benefits, and a fun, creative environment.


Do you have a passion for cigars? So do we!

Reporting to the Tobacco Sales Manager, a lot of your day will consist of making customer phone calls to find out what they need and helping sell a solution (Boveda) to a problem (dry cigars). You’ll utilize phone, email, video and virtual meetings. You will be comfortable making dozens of connections per day, working with channel partners, generating interest, qualifying prospects and closing sales. As a tobacco marketing advocate, you’ll be communicating with Marketing staff and relaying customer feedback. There will be opportunity to attend cigar industry events and/or trade shows.

About Boveda Boveda Inc. is a privately held corporation based in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Founded in 1997, Boveda Inc. is the global leader in 2-way humidity control for a multitude of industries and applications. Our patented products allow companies and end-users to preserve moisture-sensitive products over extended periods of time with zero maintenance. Market Applications Boveda engineers multiple different relative humidity levels for various industries for use in intermediate moisture control, defined as a RH need between 0 and 100% RH. Boveda's patented 2-way humidity control is unique to the world in that it responds to ambient temperature and moisture by adding or removing humidity, as needed, to regulate the pre-determined RH% engineered into each Boveda. While some RH levels are used in multiple industries, others are industry-specific. Boveda is made of all-natural food-grade ingredients and can incorporate an oxygen scavenger when needed. Boveda, in various sizes and RH levels, is used for applications in premium tobacco, musical instruments, food, nutraceuticals, electronics, medical devices, Major League Baseball and herbal medicine. How Boveda Works Boveda works on the scientific principle that certain salts mixed with water will naturally regulate humidity. Boveda's patents are on the methods invented to make this scientific principle portable and practical for the rigors of packaging applications. Boveda absorbs and emits only purified water vapor through its semipermeable membrane and does not damage material through direct contact.
