Our team is split over Zurich and Amsterdam, with the latter housing our very own lab for sequence testing. Our two offices get together every quarter during our seasonal offsites.

Team

An experienced team bringing together the best of synthetic biology, machine learning and developer tools.

What do we offer?

Where are you based?

We have office and lab in Amsterdam (NL) and an office in Zurich (CH)

You care

You care deeply about our mission. You want to create a world where biology is used to build everything.

You try

You learn by making prototypes & experiments to de-risk your most important assumptions. You are comfortable taking bets without doing endless research. You don't over-optimize on efficiency, but you get the first version out the door to unblock critical issues

You are adaptable

Speed and ability to learn as you go along is what we value most in our team. You try to find answers to the most important problems quickly. If you get stuck you rapidly find alternative ways to solve the problem. Building a product from scratch is all about validated learning. You fall in love with problems, you're not married to a solution

You take initiative

We are a small team, and no matter how senior you are, we expect you to be involved (and enjoy) in building the product and company as we go. You pick things up when they fall on the floor

You deliver

You like going from zero to one. You can own the design space from beginning to end. You're comfortable with framing, conceptualising, coding & building to come up with the required solution for any situation. You care about delivering high quality work on time;

You are curious

We work at the intersection of a wide range of computer science, biology, design and product expertise. You are interested in learning about stuff outside of your domain of expertise

You are kind

You care about people and building the best possible culture. You are friendly, generous, and considerate. We want people to be excellent to each other. We want all to feel welcome.

What do we offer?

Team

An experienced team bringing together the best of synthetic biology, machine learning and developer tools. We are backed by the best venture capitalists (IndexKindred) and industry leaders (Steve at Deepmind, Tim at Perfect Day)

Autonomy

Joining an early-stage company means you will have a significant impact on how we shape the future of the company. You will have a lot of freedom and responsibility to define your processes and make decisions;

Get Physical

Our team operates at the intersection of synthetic biology, machine learning and developer tools. We are building the platform to allow any bio-engineer to design and optimize cell-factories. Our machine-designed sequences actually get tested in our physical wet-lab.

Equipment

You can pick your hardware for at home and the office to be productive.

Salary & Perks

We offer a top of the market salary and generous equity stake in the company. We offer a wide range of benefits from health and wellbeing, financial, to training and career progression opportunities.

Office & Laboratory

We offer access to state of the art offices (Zurich, Delft) and laboratory (Delft) at our two sites. You can work remotely for a couple of days per week, but we do find it important to meet each other in person every week to build our team. We also travel between Switzerland and the Netherlands to meet up every quarter.

Life

Life doesn’t just happen at work. Many of us have young families and all of us truly value a proper work-life balance. We trust that people get their work done, and don't care when or where they do it (although we ask that you run wet-lab experiments in our laboratory, rather than your home bathtub). We ask that you take at least 25 days off per year, and more if you need it. We offer 4 months parental leave. Part-time work is often an option, and some of our leaders work part-time.

What else should you know?

What else should you know?

Where are you based?

We have office and lab in Amsterdam (NL) and an office in Zurich (CH)

Will you relocate me?

We can provide a small relocation budget and will help you get settled here.

Can I work fully remote?

No. We've decided that we'd like to have the team work from our offices and labs at least two days per week. We believe it's a necessity given the interaction between our machine learning and laboratory work. That being said, we're comfortable with working-from-home days.

How big is the company?

We are currently at 25 FTE and expect more growth after our Series A.

Will you sponsor my visa?

We can sponsor visas for non-EU/EEA or Swiss residents for our office in the Netherlands.

Are you funded?

Yes, we raised a $24M Series A in late 2023.

I don't know anything about biology & machine learning, is this for me?

Yes. We're looking for people who are smart and willing to learn new things quickly. If you're a great (bio-)engineer and excited about bringing machine learning, synthetic biology and developer tooling together, this could be the best environment for you to dive deep into those topics while approaching them with a fresh perspective.
