Careers

We’re working together to accelerate drug discovery and synthetic biology. Help us continue our mission.

OUR TEAM

Transcriptic is a small company but we’re growing quickly. Our work culture is such that you can do your best work supported by a group of your peers. Everyone sets their own goals, and everyone is empowered to think creatively.

We work hard and we focus, but we don’t do all-nighters. Grinding yourself into the ground is a fast way to introduce bugs. Life science demands precision; we take our time and we get it right. We use commercial-off-the-shelf solutions when they’re available, and we aren’t afraid to open them up to get to more exacting standards — and if we can’t find it, we build it. We’re completely devoted to solving Transcriptic’s challenges as cleverly as possible to build solid, reliable, intelligent solutions.

The Transcriptic Team

Our scientists, engineers and researchers all work together in a collaborative environment.
Laboratory automation requires precision and teamwork.
We build our own software to elevate our researchers beyond traditional lab technicians.

We get free lunch brought in daily and dinner if you choose to stick around. Our shelves are stocked with various snacks (fresh, healthy and otherwise), and we brew coffee and tea all day long.
