Chemistry, Life Science & Engineering Recruitment

Lead Engineer - Bioreactor


  • Yorkshire
  • £45,000 - £65,000
  • Engineering & Software

About this job

Our client is an early-stage, venture-backed start-up seeking to revolutionise the cellular bioproduction sector by building, testing & developing cutting edge machines. The aim of the business is to create scalable, fully automated systems by re-designing the process of mammalian cell culture in a bioproduction/ manufacturing environment. Doing this will allow novel products in the cultivated meat & next gen therapeutics sector to enter mass market efficiently and economically.

We are currently recruiting for a senior position which will require the successful applicant to lead a small engineering team. Although line management will play an important part of this position, this role requires a desire to design, test and build novel bioproduction systems. Due to the start-up nature of the organisation, you should expect a dynamic environment with changing project objectives.

This business is for you if…

  • You have demonstrable experience developing cell culture production systems from understanding user requirements & concept through to manufacture
  • You are comfortable utilising online platforms such as CAD (SolidWorks preferable) and performing hand calculations to determine engineering problems
  • You have a commercial mindset and relish solving difficult technical challenges. A hunger to engage in prototyping using 3D printing, thermoforming, CNC/machining is a must!

You will join a close knit and collaborative team of R&D scientists who value quality but are not afraid to get “stuck in” and solve hands on technical issues. This organisation will give you the opportunity to join fast-paced environment in a rapidly evolving and transformative industry!

The application process will be multi-stage with a technical written exercise, screening call, and an onsite visit with the opportunity to meet members of the team. There are likely to be two core interviewers (the co-founders!) and several more from other parts of the business.

Apply to VRS today to be considered for this excellent opportunity!
