We are:

Transcriptic is the robotic cloud laboratory for the life sciences. We design, build, own, and operate automated robotic and molecular biology infrastructure that scientists around the world use over the internet. We bring “cloud computing” to experimental biology to enable labless biotech, rapid drug discovery, and frictionless production-scale workflows.

At Transcriptic, individuals are empowered to think creatively to solve problems and answer hard questions with well research data. We work in an unstructured environment where everyone’s encouraged to do their best work supported by a team of peers. We set our own goals and hierarchy is naturally discovered.

  • Experience with working in a biology lab environment and an ability to quickly grasp biological assays
  • Familiarity with programming languages (e.g. Python) as well as source control systems
  • Knowledge of statistics
  • Strong analytical and problem solving abilities
  • The ability to organize and execute many projects at once


You want:

  • a challenging environment that will push you to grow and improve
  • opportunities to learn new technologies and fields, along with the freedom to work on hard technology and real science
