Join the Bento Lab team

About Bento Lab

Bento Lab is a start-up 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 based in London, but most of our roles can be remote, and we have a flexible and collaborative approach to all aspects of our work. If you share our passion for biotech, STEM, and citizen science and want to play a key part in shaping the future of bio, then join us. We are always looking for great people to join our team. 

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.
