Product Engineer, Applications
Company: Berkeley Lights, Inc.
Posted on: February 25, 2021
Here at Berkeley Lights, we think cells are awesome! Cells are
capable of manufacturing cures for diseases, fibers for clothing,
energy in the form of biofuels, and food proteins for nutrition. So
the question is, if nature is capable of manufacturing the products
we need in a scalable way, why aren't we doing more of this? Well,
the answer is that with the solutions available today, it is hard.
Berkeley Lights is here to change all of that! Our extremely
sophisticated proprietary technology and Beacon-- and Lightning TM
--systems accelerate the rate researchers can discover and develop
cell-based products in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of
the cost of conventional, legacy research methods. Using our tools
and solutions, scientists can find the best cells, the first time
they look. Our goal is to continue to collaborate with customers to
drive the adoption of our technologies, making cell-based products
and therapeutics more easily accessible the world over! You will
play a major role here in the creation and development of these
technologies, and our success will depend on you! We have been
changing how the world develops cell-based products since 2011, and
now our family of around 200 employees welcomes you to consider
joining us on this incredible journey. The Product Engineer,
