Job Description


We are changing the way biology and medical research are done,

right at the edge of bits and atoms. Life-science research and diagnostics are

more tedious, laborious, and error-prone than they need to be. This makes

research and healthcare slower, more expensive, and less reliable, even for

what should be simple tests and therapies! We make life-science research and

diagnostic medicine better, faster, and cheaper.

We want to encapsulate all life science methodology into an army

of AI-powered robot scientists that are portable, scalable, and rigorous.

Biotech research and clinical diagnostics can be done in a more rapid,

cost-effective, portable, and rigorous way. Researchers can focus on their

mission, developing new drugs, treating patients, and discovering biology,

rather than on the tedium of compliance and process control. No more thinking

about FDA audits and traceability. Obtain observability and certainty in your

results. New therapies and diagnostics will have lower operating overhead,

reducing the cost of healthcare and improving patient outcomes. Culture We

think culture is something we build together and should be used to motivate and

cohere, rather than to exclude. If you are curious and excited about science

and technology, and enjoy working in a high autonomy, high accountability, and

hands-on environment, there's a good chance you'll be energized working here.

We have a strong goal-oriented and asynchronous culture, so cogent and pithy

writers will flourish. We emphasize learning and transparency and look for

people who can expand the product's capabilities as well as their own.
