Job description

Product owner (Biologist) - Robotics for Laboratory Automation

We are looking for a talented and motivated biologist with a passion for robotics and laboratory automation to join our team as a Product Owner. In this role, you will be doing the research and analysis to help develop products that will revolutionise the way scientists work and ultimately accelerate global biological research.

Key Responsibilities

  • Research scientific workflows and identify areas where robotics and automation can improve efficiency and accuracy.
  • Work closely with scientists and researchers to understand their needs and requirements.
  • Analyse competitors' products and identify gaps and opportunities for innovation.
  • Develop and refine product specifications, including features, functions, and requirements.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including engineering, design, and marketing, to bring products to market.
  • Act as the voice of the customer and advocate for their needs in product development and decision-making processes.

The team
You will be supported by the Product Manager and form a crucial part of the Product Team. You will be working closely with our Science, Hardware, Software, User Experience and Sales teams who follow a set of guiding principles, including:
- We help each other - We all own the product and better work happens when we work together.

- Nothing is Sacred - We regularly reflect on our product and our ways of working. Using our learnings we change our approach to delivery and our product.

How do you fit in?

  • You have a Bachelors degree or higher in Biology or related field
  • You have a strong understanding of scientific workflows and laboratory procedures
  • You are curious and passionate about automation. No robotics experience is needed.
  • You have excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • You would like to work in a fast-paced, dynamic environment and handle multiple priorities
  • You are naturally very organised
  • You have awesome attention to detail

Why should you apply?

  • You are motivated by having a job with purpose, our customers work on finding cures for cancer, creating natural alternatives to synthetic materials, and accelerating the development of biofuels for example.
  • You prefer understanding and explaining science to operating a micropipette.
  • You prefer to live in a Somerset national park, on the beach, rather than a sprawling urban metropolis.
  • You want to have fun working in a vibrant, fast-paced environment.
  • You want to have an impact in ways youve never had before… were a small company (circa 65 people) with solid foundations for rapid growth

If you are passionate about using your biology expertise to make a positive global impact and have a strong desire to work in a cutting-edge field, we would love to hear from you.
