You rarely get the chance to change an entire industry. But that’s the position we find ourselves in. We’re developing a machine that totally automates mammalian cell culture – one of the most painful but important processes in biology.

Cells are crucial for biotech and pharma: they are used to discover and develop new drugs, AND they enable cutting-edge cancer cell therapies. Mytos has the potential to impact therapy development across the board.

We’ve assembled a world-class team to take on this challenge, with ex-Dyson engineers and Nature-published scientists working hand-in-hand.

Mytos is backed by Y Combinator, the most successful startup program in the world which produced companies such as AirBnb, Dropbox, and Ginkgo Bioworks.


We are looking for a high-growth scientist to join our biology team and push the limits of different cell lines, including human pluripotent stem cells (PSC), workflows we can automate. This is a unique opportunity to learn how to execute projects at the interface of engineering and biology.

We believe in autonomy, and you should expect to run your own projects and attempt to overcome hurdles you encounter, with team members always available to advise as you require.

You will be interfacing with multiple disciplines, such as hardware/software engineers, so expect to have the opportunity to learn about these different areas too.
