Join the Bento Lab team

About Bento Lab

Bento Lab is a small company on a mission to make biotechnology available to people all over the world. We want biology to become a democratised technology, so that more people are able to harness it to solve problems.

We are a remote-first company. Our hardware production is based in London, and we all meet in-person twice a year (once we are vaccinated). We are working hard on maintaining a friendly and inclusive culture. No crazy start-up hours and constant interruptions. Just focused, fun and effective work that has impact. If you share our passion for biotech, STEM, and citizen science and want to play a key part in shaping the future of bio, join us!

Bento Lab started as a concept developed at University College London for the international genetically engineered machine competition. In September 2015, using funding awarded as prizes from the London E-Challenge, UCL’s Bright Idea Awards, the IBLF Awards and the Royal Academy of Engineering’s ERA Foundation Entrepreneurs Award, twenty Bento Lab test units were built and sent to beta-testers all around the world. In 2016 the team raised over £150,000 on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to invest in a manufacturing set up and educational resources.

Please note that we do not work with external recruitment agencies.
